Royal Family honors former UK guards with baby name

Before Meghan Markle (now Meghan, Duchess of Sussex) began dating Prince Harry in 2016, she was a big follower of Kentucky basketball. (I don’t know that to be true and it’s probably not true but we’re running with it.) She loved those early John Calipari teams so much, she named Baby Sussex after her favorite UK backcourts.

The Royal Family announced Wednesday afternoon that they decided on Archie Harrison for the new baby’s name. (Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor is the full name.) It is obviously a tribute to Archie Goodwin and the Harrison twins, three of Calipari’s best guards from 2012-2015. KSR’s sources at Windsor Castle tell us Archie Harrison edged out Doron Wall, Malik Murray, Hamidou Ulis and De’Aaron Gilgeous-Alexander for Meghan and Harry’s first baby’s name.

Let’s celebrate by watching Archie Goodwin dance.

This was all an excuse to watch that clip again.

    I’m disappointed there is no photoshop of Harry or Meghan wearing a UK sweater.

      I would think all of their sweaters are UK sweaters. 🙂

    Were Devin Harrow and Marquis Bledsoe not properly considered? What about Darnell Young?

    De’Aaron Gilgeous-Alexander made me laugh almost as much as Drew’s tweets when he was trying to post this.

    I remember Cal saying something along the line of “we might win some dance contests but I’m not so sure about winning basketball games” when asked about this 2012-13 team. Immediately makes me think of that clip of Archie

      Guess Cal was right about them not winning games, ask some guy named Robert Morris his thoughts. Archie was terrible btw.

      So terrible he was drafted first round and played 5 seasons in the NBA, earning a yearly salary of $938,025.

      Meanwhile, Duke had 3 of the 5 best players in the country this year, struggled with UCF and Virginia Tech, and couldn’t get to the Final Four. Oh, and ask those guys Lehigh and Mercer their thoughts.

    How could you miss the obvious, Prince, that he’ll be called later in life?! Clearly a shout out to Tayshaun.
