Hear From the Man who Knows Where Mohamed Bamba is Going

Kentucky’s highest-ranked remaining target in the Class of 2017, power forward Mohamed Bamba, is taking his official visit to Duke this weekend.  The Cats were in good position following his January 20th official visit, but that all could change in Durham.  It’s the perfect time to hear from someone who knows what Bamba will do, but Seth Burger, his Westtown head coach, won’t spill the beans to Sports Illustrated.

Where is Mohamed going? He is going to the NBA, where superstardom awaits.  Where is he going to college? It doesn’t really matter.  He will decide when he decides.

His coach (who also happens to be the founder of AND1) didn’t share any scoop, but his perspective of the recruiting process is interesting.  Fans frequently ask where Bamba is going.  Of course, he can never give anything away, but he can eloquently describe Bamba’s elite skill-set.

Mo is the best shot blocker and rebounder I have ever seen in person, at any level. Mo also is supremely talented on the offensive end. In our league championship on Feb. 17 (we won, 96—72), Mo had 19 points, missing one shot all game. He made a 6’8” Division I big his personal poster with an opening drop step dunk, and also went 3 for 4 from three. There is nothing this kid cannot do on the court. Mo is also extremely intelligent, so much so that he qualified to go to Harvard with his grades and test scores.

If that doesn’t paint the picture well enough, watch him do work at this year’s Peach Jam alongside Quade Green.

In other basketball recruiting news, Cal’s other elite 2017 target still on the board, Kevin Knox, told ESPNU  he will announce his decision in mid-April.  Knox originally planned on announcing in March, but will now wait until after the college basketball season.

      So, unbridled, I assume you want Bamba to go somewhere else as well?

      No tard. Only childish and ignorant logic would come to that conclusion. My comment had absolutely nothing to do with the recruit and was merely directed towards you hypocritically calling someone else a troll. Carry on my sad little trolling friend.

      Reading comprehension is difficult for you, isn’t it?

      You struggle with basic logic don’t you?

      You’re attacking ME, for calling out the troll. Most would argue that you doing that would be the equivalent of you defending the troll.

      Here, let me paint you a little picture, since you struggle with simple shit like this: some dude calls your mom a whore, and I punch him in the mouth, and you get mad at me for starting shit. See how stupid you look?

      I know, you’re just an angry old dude, and you probably drink too much, but you’ll die many, many years before me, and it’ll all work out for the best for everyone in the end.

      Have a good’n!!! 😀

      No your analogy is false. It would be closer to a whore calling your mom a whore. Both statements are factually true. They are not mutually exclusive. While you may have called out a troll…it doesn’t magically change the fact that you, yourself, are indeed a troll. I didn’t defend the troll, I merely stated the fact that you are also a troll. Pretty simple actually.

      Once again tard, you have not a clue as to how old I am. Keep trying though. I’m starting to appreciate your effort.

      Actually I’ll say it like this, your mom calls a skank a whore. Someone points out that your mother is a whore as well. That’s a more fitting analogy. That’s all little buddy. You have a “good-n” as well.

      Calling someone “tard” is the quickest way to make sure no one listens to you or cares what you’re saying.

      You have a fair point.

      Looks like I struck a nerve.

      And I mother is a respected doctor in Illinois.

      You’re obviously an old redneck racist. End of story.

      Enjoy the rest of your life!!!

      Oh snap! What a comeback!

      Ha ha ha ha ha….

      Its going to be a better place when the folks like you and the other hateful, racist, ignorant, narrow minded grandpas pass away.

      Wow! You super mad now. Will it suck when I out live you? How mad will you be then? Hahahaha. Ignorant is subscribing to a communist philosophy and thinking it somehow might magically work. It never has and never will. Very narrow minded to think otherwise. Racist? Nah. That’s low hanging fruit. I’ll also add that you have no idea what my ethnicity is. Keep throwing trying your various troll schemes hoping to catch lightening in a bottle. Not looking positive this far. Seriously, you are supremely terrible at trolling. I almost feel bad for you.

    That coach is really trying for his 15 minutes, haha

    Headline is misleading considering the coach clearly states Mo will decide where he’s going to college when he decides.
