The latest on draft decisions (Tuesday Show Thread)

Good morning, friends, and welcome to the Tuesday edition of Kentucky Sports Radio. In the wake of the news that Shai Gilgeous-Alexander has pushed back his NBA Draft announcement, Matt’s got some updates to share. I think that sounds like some must-listen radio.

Join in on the fun by calling (502) 571-1080 or send a text to the KSR Texting Machine at (859) 300-3264.

    First!!!!!!!

      Are you UKJB, returned to the show thread under a different name? Maybe you should make “First” your screen name.



    • ClutchCargo
      10:11 am April 3, 2018 Permalink

      False start! 5 yard penalty, first down.

    • UKJB never said “First!” though. He was just always first because he was an insider or something I think. One of MJ’s Transy buddies?



    • JerryDamage
      10:37 am April 3, 2018 Permalink

      Yeah I’m not UKJB. To me being first is just a throw back to those days of the show thread where there was a fight for it.

    • That was every post at one time. lol. Somehow it just kind of died on the vine. Maybe it coincided with the requirement to log in.



    • DrSayre
      3:31 pm April 3, 2018 Permalink

      That’s what ended it for me… the thing I used to post first didnt work after the log in happened. I think I could probably get it to work if I looked at it some.. but I lost interest in it haha

    I can’t see a scenario where Shai returns. Maybe he does but he was the only one I felt certain would go. Anyone else feel it’s a big press conference where Cal has all the guys announce at once?



    • ClutchCargo
      10:10 am April 3, 2018 Permalink

      I’m thinking that is the case. Cal still has a couple of elite prospects waiting to see what happens with the roster, and I’m sure he would rather wrap this thing up asap. If everyone is on board with this, it tells me that Knox is staying if he announces anything this week as planned.

    Oh, good. Some of that wrestling talk we were missing yesterday.



  4. secrick
    10:10 am April 3, 2018 Permalink

    I watched the game last night and everyone has been talking about Matthews and how they wished he had stayed at Ky and even me. After watching him i can see why he left. He is good but still would not start at Ky. I’m sure he is glad he left and did play in a final and he is only a Soph.



    • ClutchCargo
      10:14 am April 3, 2018 Permalink

      He has come a long way, but you are absolutely right. He would be a super sub at UK. Also, he would be getting ripped to shreds by those same critical fans for bricking those free throws when the game was still somewhat in reach.



  5. DrSayre
    10:12 am April 3, 2018 Permalink

    Bleacher Report just put out a mock draft with Knox at 11 and Shai at 14. I think it would be hard for either guy to come back, even if they can improve their position. The only way I could see either one doing that, is if their family was well off enough where they didnt need the money right away.



    • RealCatsFan
      10:21 am April 3, 2018 Permalink

      I think that is the exact scenario with Knox’s family. Not sure about SGA – they are not destitute, but if you are knocking on a top ten pick, hard to turn down.



    • DrSayre
      10:28 am April 3, 2018 Permalink

      Yup, I agree. Sounds like there’s a legitimate chance Knox comes back!

    • Whenever Shai does go pro, maybe he’ll get drafted by the Raptors since he said he misses poutine.



    • J-Dub421
      11:06 am April 3, 2018 Permalink

      Mmmmm… Poutine…..

    I love Shai, but why would his decision merit a Sports Center announcement?



    • secrick
      10:19 am April 3, 2018 Permalink

      Every kid wants to be on sports center.



    • JerryDamage
      10:19 am April 3, 2018 Permalink

      It doesn’t necessarily. But if the offer was there and they accepted, why not do it on Sports Center? Gives Shai good press, gives UK good press, win win.

  7. Man, Nova was just a steamroller in this tourney. Hat tip to them. (I know I posted that before but it was meant for the show thread).

    • I also posted this on the wrong thread when Matt was singing:

      “Careful Matt, Finebaum’s guys will get video of you singing and guffaw on air about it again!”



    • RealCatsFan
      10:29 am April 3, 2018 Permalink

      They reminded me of the late 90’s UK teams. They can simply shoot you out of the gym, but they also rebound really well, and they play good defense. Hopefully Cal will have better shooters next year. I think we will.



    • ClutchCargo
      10:38 am April 3, 2018 Permalink

      Next year’s team will be loaded with shooters, especially if Knox returns.

    Ha! Matt has no room at all to criticize Shannon’s musical tastes. πŸ™‚

      Matt has no room to criticize anyone’s musical tastes.

    Didn’t Michigan offer the coaching job to Pitino before they offered it to Beilein or did Beilein come a few years later?



    • J-Dub421
      11:28 am April 3, 2018 Permalink

      I’m not sure if Pitino was offered or not, but yes, he was a major candidate for the Michigan job and after Pitino came to Louisville they hired Beilein.

    Man the thread is slow today.



    • Realme
      11:27 am April 3, 2018 Permalink

      I don’t envy Matt trying to make an interesting UK show today. This extremely detailed hypothetical argument is brutal. Not much to comment on…



    • JerryDamage
      11:29 am April 3, 2018 Permalink

      Been a good day to do something goofy…like finish an old food bracket for instance.



    • J-Dub421

      We can start trading recipes again like we did when it was slow a couple of years ago. πŸ™‚



    • ClutchCargo

      I almost never actually listen to the show. It’s like nails on a chalk board to me, for the most part.



    • JerryDamage
      11:36 am April 3, 2018 Permalink

      CC, I’ve listened every day for over 7 years and it’s slowly starting to get like that for me too.



    • Realme
      11:36 am April 3, 2018 Permalink

      I always thought we should share pictures of our pets, but that’s not easy to do anonymously. We could plan our KSBar Show Thread Watch Party for next season. πŸ™‚



    • Realme
      11:38 am April 3, 2018 Permalink

      As far as show quality, they need to get Drew back on air, or Ryan needs to get charged up. Matt nonstop doing Matt is not the best KSR.



  11. J-Dub421
    11:30 am April 3, 2018 Permalink

    I’ll take our record under Cal all day every day. We are in the hunt almost every season, and that’s all you can reasonably ask of your coach. The NCAA tournament is a crapshoot. Anything can happen. Cal also brings in the nicest kids who almost never get in trouble, go to class, do charity work, and are generally a credit to our program.



    • secrick
      11:37 am April 3, 2018 Permalink

      You got that right. We will be right back in the final 8 next year.



    • ClutchCargo
      11:44 am April 3, 2018 Permalink

      I like to think the vast majority of UK fans see it that way, J-Dub. It’s just the loud minority of people who need to get a life that are the problem. The fact that just about everyone has internet access is both good and bad.



    • RealCatsFan
      11:51 am April 3, 2018 Permalink

      I think the majority of the dedicated “show-threaders” feel the same way. It’s the late night, alcohol induced subset of the fan base who most vehemently disagree.

    Hillbilly Jim…the first wrestling figure I ever got as a kid.

      LOL @ RG. Posting above because I didn’t want to mess it up.



    • JerryDamage
      11:45 am April 3, 2018 Permalink

      I get what he’s saying but it’s an evolution of the character as well to sometimes go from face to heel or vice versa.



    • RealCatsFan
      11:49 am April 3, 2018 Permalink

      Hillbilly Jim is one of the best guests KSR has had in quite some time. Very entertaining guy to listen to. He would be fun to sit down next to in a bar and split a few pitchers – I have the feeling that a little ‘Shine might be more his thing, though. πŸ™‚



    • JerryDamage

      He was around in the 80s so I’m sure if you sat down with some beverages that he’d have some great stories to tell.
