    Are these Louisville NBA expansion rumors legit? I would love to have a NBA team in Kentucky, but I dont see how we could come up with a billion dollars for a team. Not to mention the YUM! Center’s scheduling issues the NBA could have with U of L.

      These rumors are legit and this is the closest the NBA has ever been to coming to Louisville since the ABA folded. The University of Louisville will be the only thing standing in the way, but Mayor Fischer (with the help of potential investors) will try to find a way to make it happen despite the University. Mayor Fischer is desperate for something like this to happen for him to leave a lasting legacy. The YUM Center and the Kentucky basketball TV market are two untapped assets the NBA is eyeing.

    Matt, you should take a minute to explain to people what a fact is. 2+2 = 4 is a fact. An opinion held by an online commenter and expressed with conviction, no matter how strong, is still only an opinion.

    I’ll preface this with the concession: My only achievement is winning the sectionals in the spelling bee (YES, it’s a SPORT)….

    Things Kobe and MJ will never accomplish, that LBJ did……

    1.Only player in nba history to quit because of air conditioner
    2.Quit on his team the year after he promises a championship
    3.Dunked on by a high school kid then confiscates the tape
    4.Bail on the dunk contest 9 times
    5.Only able to win a ring with 2 superstars
    6.Play on same team as his moms boyfriend
    7.Average 1.8 pts in the 4th quarter of NBA finals.
    8.Lose not 1, not 2, but 3 times in the Finals.
    9.Host a national televised TV show to leave his team
    10.Go 2 for 18 in an NBA playoff game.
    11.Get stuffed by a player under 6 feet (Nate Robinson)
    12.Flop every single game in the playoffs
    13.Choke 4 out of 5 finals games by dropping FG% by 18
    14.0 Rings if not for refs calling early fouls on Durant and Westbrook it threw them out of rhythm, made them play soft and sit for big parts of the game which changed the flow and momentum of the finals.

    I personally disagree about not being able to get a good idea about how good a player is based on mixtapes. Ryan’s assertion that mixtapes are just for fans is not true. Highlight videos are sent to coaches all the time and that’s often where coaches get their first impressions of the player. Coaches go to watch the kid not because they can’t tell anything from the highlight film, but b/c they need to do their due diligence and actually do their job. They want to see more and they want to see the type of kid the recruit is. Good scouts have a knack to see “it”. “It” is hard to explain, but it’s just an overall feeling you get from watching a kid. Most of the time, scouts need to understand the game and often times have a personal experience in playing the game as well. You can learn a ton from watching highlight films, although some are better than others. You can instantly see ballhandling ability, offensive moves, footwork, speed, jumping ability, coordination. The idea that highlight films are useless is flat-out wrong.

    Couldn’t agree more about the strength of the RB position this and next year.

    But how could Matt forget THE BOOM on his list of our RB Stable.
    Boom Williams was a BIG GET by the staff last year.
    If the O-Line and QB show the kind of improvement we expect, the running lanes could really open up.

    Very Excited for some FOOTBALL!!!!!

    Not sure you are going to talk about this but Tomlin’s song, “The Magnificent Seven Theme” cracked me up this morning when reviewing the Kick-off bracket. I also agree with one of the commenters that “The Flight of Valkyries” should be used. They would be perfect KSR songs.
