    Any breaking news today? Seems to happen a lot during this show.

    What a race last night? I am sure KSR added some votes for sure. Sounds like I missed a fun show on KET last night?

    Look how unhappy he already looks just being photoshopped in that jersey.

    kinda sucks that top 2 picks went to western conference which is already stacked … will be fun to watch those 2 go at each other for years … what are the chances the lakers get towns and then grab drew at #27 to go along with randle

      That would be awesome! The Lakers need a point guard too.

    So the question before the show? Does Matt open up with a very audible draw of breath?

    My heart sank for Karl when I saw the Knicks announced at #4. There was a universal, “Nooooo!” from the BBN.

    Alright KSR, start it up now. Bevin vs. Conway coming soon!

    I don’t believe John is wrong. I believe he is a liar.

    Are there any other good players at Purdue? Or does Swanigan just think so highly of himself that he can do it alone?

      None that I can think of. Their fan base seems to think they’ll be really good and win the Big 10 this year because they finished 3rd last year. I think they’re delusional.

      My cousin is a Purdue alum. He texted me when the NCAA tournament bracket came out and said something along the lines of, “We got you in the 2nd round!” I just told him that they’d be lucky to get past Cincinnati in the first round. What a bunch of losers those Boilermakers are.

      Sounds like your cousin put the cart before the horse!

      I am ever embarrassed when I think about the fact that I was born in that awful state. Luckily, my family moved to Ky before I was old enough to soak any of it in.

    Joel Embiid was in between Nerlens and this year’s crop. I think he counts.

      He was out injured this past season, so I want to see what he can do before I pass judgment on him. The jury is still out on Embiid, for me at least.

    Since coach Cal came to Kentucky, most of the best big men drafted have come out of UK: Cousins, Kanter, Davis, Noel, Randle….

      Wall, Knight, Bledsoe, Harrisons, Booker, etc. Even the guards…just call us NBA University.

      I often tell people that UK is the MIT of college basketball. College is meant to prepare people for their future careers. UK has the best NBA program around.

    Blatt, don’t pull a “Blatt”.

    What about Dan Dakich? I know he has a show close to the same time, but i think he’s changed some peoples perception of him and would make for some interesting radio.
