Ryan Lemond needs your help

lemond-king

Ryan needs a lot of help, actually, but he can use all of you on this one. Tomorrow he will spend eight minutes with all 17 members of the 2013-14 Kentucky Wildcats basketball team, interviewing them about the upcoming season and whatever else comes up along the way. Ryan is a former Lexington sports anchor so interviewing Cats isn’t anything new to him, but it has been awhile. He’s rusty. Here’s where you come in:

Leave questions you’d like to hear Ryan ask the team in the comments section below. Most of his conversations will be basketball-related, but he’ll spend a little time asking them other things, too. Ryan will read your suggestions later tonight and, hopefully, he’ll make it through each eight-minute Q&A session without disaster tomorrow.

    We’re down by one in the national championship game and we draw a foul, one and one opportunity with less than a second on the clock. Which teammate will be the guy to hit those free throws?

    The Harrison twins appear to be squinting in every picture I see of them. Ask them if they’ve ever had an eye exam. Maybe we can make their 3-stoke even better with a matching set of Coury Flurry spectacles!

Never mind, I forgot you guys had a home game this past Sunday. I know the $8 draft is a little steep, try to pace your self next month and stay out of my yard. Someone else from your fan

    With the overwhelming length and athleticism on this squad, a Zone Defense could be very effective (ala-Syracuse), yet Coach Cal isn’t a fan of the Zone. However, last year, many fans blamed some of the team’s losses on Cal’s Man Defense, and wanted to see more Zone. What do the players think, with your size and talent, could you be playing more Zone than Man this year?
    Does either Zone or Man Defense favor this team, and could you use both effectively, depending on the situation?

    1) Ask them if they know what day of the week random dates in history were. Then when they get stumped, turn to Johnny Short and watch him amaze them.

    2) Ask them if they have bought their KY hunting/fishing license from KY Dept of Fish and Wildlife, yet.

    3) Ask them if they ever have the urge to walk down a street late at night and kick homeless people, for no apparent reason.

    Randle – what drives you?
    Aaron Harrison – we know your skills at the 2, but can you hold your own at point as well?
    Andrew Harrison – which do you enjoy the most: making a shot, dishing an assist, or making a steal?
    Dakari Johnson – how does your game compare to WCS?
    James Young – would you enjoy being a spark plug/6th man more than starting?
    Marcus Lee – which recent former Cat do you see in yourself? MKG, Liggins, AD?
    Derek Willis/Dominique Hawkins – what skills have you been working on that make you stand out?
    WCS – what did you learn the most last season?
    Poythress – has competing with Randle in practice made you better? If so, how?
    Polson – if you could get one thing through to the youngsters, what would it be?
    Hood – you’ve seen all Calipari UK teams, how does this one compare?
    Malone/Long – how does your experience impact this team’s mindset?
    Floreal – how hard of a decision was it to walk on at UK versus scholly elsewhere?

    Firstly, I’d like to thank Ryan Lemond for your volunteer time at UK. I still remembered how you explained football game rules to a lot of international students at UK.

    Some questions:
    To The Twin: Have you guys played on the opposite team? Who won? When you guys get drafted by NBA, would you insist to play on the same team?
    Marcus Lee — any favorite local shoe store to buy Chucks?
    Poythress — I could see you making one dunk per game. Will you be able to consistently do it?
