Like you and me, Nick Richards wants Mohamed Bamba in Kentucky blue next season. We want him because we want the best for the Cats; Richards wants him so they can form a dominant, defensive-minded duo in the paint.
At the Jordan Brand Classic yesterday Richards told Adam Zagoria, “Nobody not gonna score any layups if we go to Kentucky… Blocking shots all day, every day.”
Richards plays an active role in the recruitment of Bamba even though they could be competing for minutes next season. The “block shots all day” quote further proves he genuinely wants his fellow big man to join him in Lexington so they can form a new set of twin towers.
And how fun does that sound?
