Today on KSR: Decision Day for Kevin Knox

The wait is almost over.

Kentucky small forward Kevin Knox is expected to announce his NBA Draft decision sometime today.  He flew home to Florida yesterday to make a final decision, one that is reportedly coming “down to the wire.”

There are more than a few reasons why Knox could turn down the NBA for one more year at Kentucky.  Age is a factor. If Knox declares he would be one of the youngest players in the NBA.  If he waits a year, next year’s draft class is not nearly as talented as the 2018 class.  There’s also the National Title card his father continues to hold over his head.

While you’re convincing yourself that a return is possible, do not forget that he’s projected to be a lottery pick.

Today will be filled with angst, but do not fret.  Your phone will meow with a KSR alert as soon as news breaks.

Calipari is on the Road

While current players mull over their future, John Calipari is recruiting their successors.  Last night he was in Texas to see five-star point guard Tyrese Maxey.  It looks like the Maxey’s got the memo: meat is the way to Cal’s heart (and that Texas brisket looks fantastic).

If you didn’t see that last night, you aren’t following KSR’s newest basketball recruiting analyst, T.J. Walker.  Give him a follow on Twitter and check out our morning radio show.

UK Football to Scrimmage

This afternoon it will be in the 60s.  Tomorrow morning there will be snow on the ground.  That is exactly why Mark Stoops bumped up the weekly scrimmage at Kroger Field to this afternoon.

The head coach will break down everything that happens around 6:00.  Yesterday he had to meet with the media to reveal that Jordan Jones injured his shoulder during Tuesday’s practice.  It will require surgery and he’s not expected to return until camp starts in August.  Jones’ back-up at the beginning of spring, Jamin Davis, is also out for the spring season with a knee injury.  Hopefully it’s the last injury news we hear for quite some time.

See everything Stoops had to say after yesterday’s practice that was open to the media.

The Keeneland Spring Meet Starts

Enjoy the beautiful weather before it’s gone.

Bald Eagle Embraces Former UK Baseball Player

The home opener for the Minnesota Twins featured a few theatrics during the National Anthem, one of which did not completely cooperate.  A bald eagle was released, but did not immediately return to his handler.  Instead he sought out the shoulder of former Kentucky Wildcat, James Paxton.  Paxton’s patriotism is unquestioned after he refused to flinch.

 

The Masters’ Leaderboard

Before you see who’s ahead, laugh audibly at Sergio Garcia.

Tiger is seven shots back at +1, but the real story is Tony Finau, who somehow shot a -4 a day after dislocating his ankle in the Par 3 Contest.

KSR is on the Road

See the KSR crew LIVE in Lexington at Central Equipment on Red Mile Road and you might just be lucky enough to watch Ryan Lemond chase a greased pig.

    Tiger will never be like he once was.

      Nope. He hasn’t been the same since his ex wife chased him down the road with one of his golf clubs.

      He’s also 42. He clearly won’t be the same dominate Tiger, but I think he still has enough in the tank to compete for a few more majors

  2. I just turned on app notifications. It’s only times like this I do that. The first time was waiting on his commitment announcement last year.

    Does Knox have a presser scheduled? Did he definitely say he would announce today? Is it really “Judgement Day?” I know there have been discussions about today, but I have seen anything definitive yet.

    While that was an awesome display by Paxton, I’m pretty sure he is Canadian.

    I saw Sergio’s golf movie before when it was called Tin Cup.

    Am I the only one who isn’t worried about Knox either way?

      I’m not worried, just eager to see what next year’s team could become if he does come back. We should be fine either way.

      Truth. If he comes back, we’re going to rain so many 3’s Chris Bailey will roll up his sleeves every game day
