    Let’s get this Diallo decision out of the way so we can move on. I am convinced that he is gone, but we’ll see. Hopefully we will end up getting Cam Johnson to help with our shooting. I for one think that Johnson will be a better fit for us. As much as the prospect of highlight reel plays from Diallo excites me, we really need the experience and proven shooting that Johnson brings to the table.

      i’ve been out of the loop for a few days and am binge-casting last weeks shows. BUT it sounds like we are in pretty good position to get at least one of them to sign/stay. so i’m happy with that.

      Exactly; Drew said in previous post reportedly he has made his decision…well, let’s hear it.
      I’ve not been annoyed until now, so let’s move on.

      If I got to pick, I’d choose to be able to watch the athletic freak show play for UK. But I am glad Johnson seems to be waiting, because I’d love to have him if Diallo has received the news he wanted to hear.

      I would think the fact that we don’t have an answer yet means he may really be thinking about it, that it’s not a done deal.

      Diallo would definitely give UK more attention on Sports Center. But we will get Johnson for two years instead of one.

      my guess is his “decision” is that if diallo stays in the draft he’s coming to uk but otherwise he’s going to [somewhere else]. Which means he can’t announce his decision until after diallo decides. makes sense to me anyway

      Rawle Alkins decided to return to Arizona, and Chase Jeter (Duke) announced he’s transferring to Arizona. Johnson can’t transfer to UNC without sitting out a year because they’re an ACC school. If Diallo stays in the draft, I think Johnson is ours.

    The fact that a HOCKEY TEAM can generate that much excitement in Nashville should be Exhibit A that an NBA team can be successful in Kentucky. Especially if it is marketed properly. Call them the Thoroughbreds, or resurrect the Colonels name, get a good logo, cool uniforms, have the games at YUM, and make sure you have at least a few ex-UK stars (and maybe and ex-Card coming off the bench πŸ™‚ ), and I think you have the recipe for success. Kentucky NEEDS and NBA team, IMO.

      I agree with what you said. I also really, really miss the Thoroughblades today, because I watched part of that Predators game, and was reminded how awesome hockey is.

    • Stallions??? Γ°ΕΈΛœΕ“

      Seriously, I vote for Colonels, but Thoroughbreds would be cool too. They definitely can’t hire a “walk the ball up the court” type coach with a name like that.

      Next, get an NHL team and ressurect the “Thoroughblades” nickname!

    • Sorry Realme, I made the Thoroughblades reference before I read your comment.

      RCF – I love basketball but I don’t see an NBA team being successful in Kentucky. I’m sure they would draw some fans but I don’t think they’ll fill up an arena 41 times per year. I may be in the minority but I like the fact there are no pro teams in Kentucky and we can focus on the college teams.



    • Realme

      A lot of the lesser teams don’t often fill their arenas. I don’t think that’s the standard. Need to be profitable, not sold out.

    What day(s) do I need to listen to Matt pissing off Finebaum listeners? I know it’s this week, but not which days. Should be fun to listen to.

      Is that the TV show on the SEC network, or a radio show….I don’t know where to find the radio show if there is one?

      same thing



    • Realme

      It’s usually both. It’s aired on radio and SEC Network TV at the same time. Probably on ESPN radio, but I’m not sure. I plan to podcast afterwards rather than listen to four hours of commercials live.

      He should say, “Let’s talk about the Clemson game”.

    • Yes, it is on ESPN radio, but not NATIONAL radio, if that makes sense. It’s broadcast regionally. Ryan Rusillo and Bomani’s shows are on national radio during that time.

    Seems like I recall reading that Enes’ father HAD to publicly disown him to avoid persecution.



    • J-Dub421
      11:19 am May 22, 2017 Permalink

      If Enes had been deported back to Turkey, there is a possibility he could have been executed. I put nothing past that psycho Erdogan.

      I’ve wondered about this for a while. No question the guy in power is bad news. But is supporting a coup better? In other words would Kanter’s guy that failed to take over have been all about freedom? I’m totally ignorant of Turkish politics, I just wonder because usually when the military or whoever seizes control of a country, it’s just another dictatorship. I think Enes’s high visibility gives him the chance to make a difference, but I don’t know enough about the solution he would want to see.



    • J-Dub421
      11:30 am May 22, 2017 Permalink

      Turkey’s current president is now a dictator. They have “elections.” Erdogan either murders of imprisons anyone who opposes him. I can’t definitively say Enes guy would be better, but he couldn’t possibly be worse.



    • CATandMONKEY
      11:56 am May 22, 2017 Permalink

      Tens of thousands of police and government workers have been fired and thousands imprisoned by the current regime. I will support Enes against the travesty-of-a-government that holds power in Turkey.

      I guess the point is, get Erdogan out and at least there’s an opening for things to improve.

    Am I the only one who can’t stand those Conway-Heaton commercials with Shannon the Dude?

    • You ought to hear the Budget Used Car Sales commercials where I live. I don’t know if this jingle is national or local, but it’s a SEVERE ear worm (“Why.buy.NEWWWWWW, when you buy a Budget!?”), and some local stations must have only them as their sponsor.



    • RealCatsFan
      11:23 am May 22, 2017 Permalink

      I basically remove my earbud when the commercials come on so I don’t have to listen to them. I’ll take the Conway-Eaton over the Genetal Diamond commercials and the boner-med commercials any day of the week and twice on Sundays.
