Jamal Murray is your newest Wildcat

murray-announcement2

 

Once again, it’s going to be a very fun basketball season for Big Blue Nation, especially with Jamal Murray adding his name to the mix. Murray is projected to be one of the best guards in America and he’ll fit right in with Tyler Ulis, Isaiah Briscoe, Mychal Mulder and Dominique Hawkins in Coach Cal’s backcourt.

If you’re new around here and don’t really know Murray or what he’ll bring to the table, allow me to give you a brief rundown of your newest Wildcat. He is very, very good.

    An upgrade to Mychal Mulder. Will definitely take his minutes…

      Malik Newman is a stud and will dominate the SEC…

      This signing will relegate Mychal Mulder to the bench…

    That Nike Hoop footage makes me downright giddy, he was the best player on the floor. Get ready folks, Houston here we come!

    It’s not about upgrades… no reason to do what the media does and try to pit these kids against each other.

    They are brothers and will come together for # 9!

    The key is for them to find their weaknesses and not hide them. Then grow to become better.

      Agree! Why make comments that may turn the guys against each other. Coach Cal knows how best to blend the players for the best outcome. Let’s let them join forces and be the best “team” next year. Being confident is half the battle. Now, let’s hear it for our guys!

      GO CATS!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Anyone else think his shooting stroke looks like Jodie Meeks’?

    What about Charles Matthews? Well all that really matters is that Derek Willis get his touches.

    Derek will get his minutes if Skal or Poythress is in foul trouble.
