    Now that Alan Cutler and Kige Ramsey (whose video was the best by far) has both done the ice bucket challenge, I think we can move on to whatever will be the next viral social media thing. Speaking of Kige, I say this every year, we need Kige’s college football picks segment back. I need to know who to bet on!

    I’ve missed Ryan being on the show! I did see he was out in Vegas. Hopefully winning some big bucks.

    So a new KSR cruise this January?

    Kroger will be selling shirts… so uncle matt you can replace your lime green shirt.

    Ulis is Chris Paul. Tough, always makes the right pass, can hit the three to create spacing.
    Towns reminds me of Dirk. Great footwork, great size, good shooting.

    Karl Towns reminds me of Dirk Nowitsk, but with more energy and a little less range.. the twins remind me of a pair of Dwyane Wades. Tyler Ulis reminds me of a young Calvin Murphy.Alex Poythress is an angry Carl Malone.

    Karl Towns is Kevin Love. More like the version of Kevin Love at UCLA, though. Outlet passes, big-time rebounder, but also loves taking perimeter shots (maybe a little too much).

  46. Taylor

    Tyler Ulis reminds me of how Tony Parker runs the Spurs. He has an immediate ability to take whatever the defense gives him, and anticipates everything when he has the ball in his hands.

  54. Tru Blu

    Why would you NOT do the Platoon with this team. It worked SO WELL in the Bahamas, less likely of injuries, everyone gets lots of rest, it will show recruits, they just need to pick UK even if there are 13 Mc Donalds ALL Americans because we win games.



    • RealUKFan
      11:19 am August 20, 2014 Permalink

      There are lots of reasons not to platoon. First off and probably most important, not all five players need to come off the floor at the same time. Some may be playing spectacularly and need to stay in the game. The guards can obviously go longer at full speed than the big guys. So a normal substitution pattern with a normal rotation will be much better.

    Derek Willis is a lot like Tom Parker was, only he’s not like Tom Parker at all. Parker was 6-6” and his nose was astounding. Outside of Jack Givens, Tom Parker was the most reliable shooter from the free throw line and three feet left or right viewed latterly, I have ever seen. Derek is several inches taller, his nose is not as noticeable, and while he while he may learn to take and make that shot that the defense gives him every time he is on the court, he’s a wannabe. You are a player Derek, just play and have fun with it.

    Rasheed Willis and Anthony Epps could really shoot. Karl T. and D. Hawkins can also shoot, thedifference is those two guys can’t actually make. To be fair, we heard KAT could shoot the three, we never heard he could MAKE the 3.
