“We Ask You Wednesdays” Vol. 9



The off-season tends to get a little dull sometimes around the KSR compound, especially as the news ever so slowly trickles in during the months of June and July. We have to get a little creative around here sometimes. I’m going to start a weekly series called “We Ask You Wednesdays,” that can hopefully get some of you all involved via Twitter. Most of you all, All of you all, Everyone but my Mom and Dad,Some of you all will probably hate it, but it’s either this or I’ll post another Trey Lyles mix tape.

Each week, the question will change and we will hit on a variety of topics, mostly UK-related… but you never know. Each week the best responses will make it on to the website.  This week’s ninth volume of the “We Ask You Wednesday” allowed Kentucky fans to answer the following question via Twitter in 140 characters or less: CREATE YOUR OWN Start-Up NBA team in Louisville, Kentucky. Come up with a name for the team, a coach for the team, and a roster. Here’s the catch… your roster must abide by the following rules:

—  9 players total (5 starters, 4 reserves)

—- 4 current Kentucky NBA players **BUT you can only use 1 player from each draft class*** (So for example: you couldn’t use DeMarcus Cousins AND John Wall)

—- 1 current Louisville NBA player

—- 1 NBA All-Star from any team

—- 2 NBA Rookies from the 2014 NBA Draft (1 Lottery Pick & 1 Second Round pick)

—- 1 current Kentucky basketball player
