    The UK NBA billboard is awesome; but I didn’t see the NBASooners board….sorry, couldn’t resist a little joke at Trae Young’s expense.
    Actually, I didn’t see Duke’s either….but you can bet they’ll have one next year.

      Multi-pronged humor that stuck on both tines. Nice.
      Glad to start Friday with a good chuckle or two.
      We got this(sic) this weekend.

      yeah i thought the board was awesome. and you bet duke will have one next year.
      and louisville fans will claim they did it first with the “we’re miles ahead” boards. even those schools have made “billboards” for ages, this is the first time i can recall a university putting up something like this for an NBA event.

      Who else legitimately COULD put up such a board?

      The UK board was pretty crowded….the others won’t have that problem.

      Yeah, maybe all the other teams should just share one.

      Wake Forrest had three guys in the all star game a couple years ago. probably the only school to come close to UK which is weird because you don’t think of WF as an NBA factory

      Tim Duncan
      Chris Paul
      Jeff Teague

    • Too bad they can’t fit the entire locker room collage (montage?) of BBNBA on that billboard!

      Why would you laugh at a true comment. Those guys would have gone as high draft picks right from High School. Wall would have been #1 without going to college so he could have played at Robert Morris for 1 year. In fact the twins also would have been high draft picks right from High School and Cal took them a few years to 2nd rounder and undrafted. Same with Poythress, 1st rounder in High School to Dleague all star, not sure if he got drafted but I don’t think so. Cal recruits NBA players, normally, he is not the reason they are in the NBA. Davis, Cousins, MKG and so on were top picks if they did not attend college. Only exception may be Booker but that is because of Booker, not Cal. Heck he could not even get on the court as Cal was trying to get the twins drafted instead of winning a title.Look at what he is doing compared to what the twins, combined, are doing right now and tell me who should have been playing.

      Agreed. I saw that and thought it was dumb as well. If all of these McDonalds All Americans are such a sure thing who would automatically get drafted no matter what school they went to and would be good in the NBA no matter what, then why are the UK guys so much better in the NBA so consistently??? Duke, Kansas, and UNC at the very least get the same amount of talent that we do. Why don’t they all have as many players in the NBA??? Why don’t they have as many at the All-Star game???

      My response:

      Cliff Alexander, Tyus Jones, Emmanuel Mudiay, Stanley Johnson, Justin Jackson; all were ranked higher than KAT in high school. KAT was named NBA rookie of the year, the 1st pick overall, and will be a consistent All Star. Also on the list, below these guys, is Devin Booker.

      Willie Cauley-Stein was ranked 40th. Ever heard of Adam Woodbury, Josh Scott, Ricardo Gathers, Robert Carter, Omar Calhoun, TJ Warren, Brandon Ashley…? They were all ranked much higher than WCS. Where are they now?

      Terrence Jones was ranked behind Josh Selby, Perry Jones, Will Barton, CJ Leslie, Deshaun Thomas and Patric Young… who’s putting up good stats in the NBA right now? Enes Kanter was ranked even further down the list.

      Xavier Henry, anyone? Quincy Miller? Shabazz Muhammad? Kaleb Tarczewski, Cliff Alexander, Kelly Oubre, Chieck Diallo, Ivan Rabb, Malik Newman? Those were all supposed to be sure one-and-dones, and how are they doing now?

      Don’t forget Andrew Wiggins, supposedly the next LeBron. He was a #1 overall draft pick, but he’s not even the best player on his own NBA team. KAT is clearly the best player on the T-Wolves. Look around the league, how many of our former players are starters or play significant minutes for their team?

    We have our point guard back. Not worried about this game.

      Yes, I have begun to suspect that the sprained ankle and flu really affected De’Aaron. Glad to have him fully back.

    What secrets do you think Ramsey and Jurich are still sitting on, waiting to be caught with?

    I believe that’s two in a row.

    Matt is totally right about this. I read the comments section on the CJ article and all the U of L fans basically said “Jurich is great, he deserves that money, Jurich has brought in way more money to the school than that.”

      It’s hard to even be surprised what that fan base will accept anymore. Maybe if one of them goes to jail that’ll finally be too far.

      Welcome to the University of Dellusion, where we win at all costs. Even if it means we’re doing something against the rules or just plain illegal. But the fans will approve no matter what because they’re idiots. And at the same time, blast our rivals coach for something that may or may not have happened a long time ago.

      Even though I know it will never happen because the NCAA sucks, I would love to see their 2013 banner come down. (It totally should.) Especially since U of L fans love to tell us that Cal is a cheater and any banners we won under him would come down. I’ve been listening to that crap for seven years.

      North Carolina’s too. You can bet Boeheim is watching that one.
      The guy, Melo, that caused the Syracuse sanctions passed away the other day, age 26.

      The Celtics honored him with a moment of silence at their game the other night.

      The only “Melo” I remember who went to Syracuse was Carnelo Anthony. Surely it’s not him, or it would be all over the news.

    Purdue is for real this year. Growing up in Western Ky, the only TV stations we could get were in Evansville, In. They were my 2nd team, and I really liked Rick Mount; if there had been a 3 pt line, he would have averaged 60/game.
    Liked Evansville Purple Aces, too; I was crushed when their plane went down…so sad.

    No wonder Ole Tom wears those Turtle Necks 365 day a year. He has to have some where to hide all that money those poor card fans think he’s worth.

      Buddy of mine has the best Tom Jurich story ever. Night before UK/UL game many years ago, Jurich and Robey and the rest of his entourage strolled into the Rumors where my friend was eating. My friend said he was wearing his UK gear, and Jurich was staring a hole in him. So he popped the UK logo on his shirt at him, and they got into a verbal altercation that only he can tell in hilarious fashion.

    • J-Dub421

      That’s pretty much what I thought Jurich would be like.

    The notion that the malpractice review board will bring down the cost of health care is the same kind of thinking that says that the tolls will go away on the new bridges in Louisville when the cost of building them is paid off. Greed never ceases on its own.
