Today’s NBA Summer League schedule:

Johnson, Herro, Mulder shined on Sunday.

Three former Kentucky Wildcats were among the standouts in Sunday’s summer league action. Keldon Johnson was UK’s highest scorer, dropping 19 points with six boards in the Spurs’ win. Becky Hammon, assistant coach for the Spurs, said afterward Johnson can be the “steal of the draft.”

Mychal Mulder went for 18 points with three 3-pointers to lead the Chicago Bulls. This dunk was pretty nice, too:

Then there’s Tyler Herro, who continued to do Tyler Herro things for Miami with 16 points, seven rebounds and five assists.

The Nike EYBL Peach Jam starts later this week.

The single biggest event in basketball recruiting begins later this week when the Peach Jam takes over North Augusta, South Carolina. KSR’s own Jack Pilgrim will be in the attendance to evaluate and interview many of UK’s top targets in the 2020 and 2021 recruiting classes, so be on the lookout for a ton of good basketball recruiting content and news. This is the time of the year when we really get to know the next crop of basketball talent.

You can bet on UK’s first football game on Bovada.

The popular online gambling website, Bovada, now has its Week 1 college football games up and Kentucky is a 12.5 point favorite over Toledo in the opener. Should we go ahead and jump on that line today? Yes. Yes we should.

Today marks the beginning of Burger Week in Lexington.

Don’t hurt yourself out there.
