Whoever Runs The Atlanta Hawks’ Twitter Account’s Thursday Morning Wakeup

Screen Shot 2016-05-05 at 12.42.07 AM

A raise is in order for whoever runs the official Twitter account of the Atlanta Hawks. Last night when the Hawks were getting shot out of Cleveland, the Twitter account stole the internet show during the game. That’s right; on a night the Cavs set an NBA postseason record for three-pointers made, all eyes were on the Hawks’ Twitter account as it all happened.

Because it gave itself the Crying Jordan meme mid-game. Twice.

 

Now for the UK stuff…

 

Marcus Lee got his invite from the combine.

Lee’s status as combine alternate changed to combine participant, he announced Wednesday evening:

It took others from the initial group of 70, turning down invites to Chicago for Lee to get in, but he is in nonetheless.

Isaiah Briscoe and Alex Poythress are also on the alternate list, hoping to earn their shot next week.

Isaiah Briscoe to work out with at least 10 NBA teams.

Briscoe was with the Spurs in San Antonio yesterday, and will travel to Los Angeles on Saturday to meet with the Clippers. He also has a workout set up with the Lakers on May 16, the day after the combine. Seven other workouts have been promised, but the dates on those are TBD, according to Briscoe’s father to Adam Zagoria.

Isaiah is certainly making the most of the new rule, maybe more than anyone else. He isn’t ready to give up on that one-and-done dream just yet.

UK Hoops lost ANOTHER player.

This time, Alexis Jennings was granted her release to transfer to another program. Jennings, a sophomore forward, started 18 games last season with an average of 10.2 points and 7.1 rebounds per game.

The women’s basketball roster on UKAthletics currently looks like this:

If the season were to start tomorrow, Matthew Mitchell would have only five returning players with game experience at UK. Makenzie Cann sat out as an incoming transfer, and Janee Thompson, who is still listed on the site, is a graduating senior.

Colin Cowherd: “Kentucky football’s no good; I can’t imagine how bad Western Kentucky football is.”

While bashing the Iowa football program and its one player selected in the 2016 NFL Draft, radio host Colin Cowherd slid in a snide remark about Western Kentucky, which had three draft picks. The remark came with a dig at your Kentucky Wildcats, and luckily he didn’t mention the Cats’ one draft pick.

Cowherd said, “Kentucky football’s no good; I can’t imagine how bad Western Kentucky football is.”

Hear the whole Iowa clip here.

Mark Stoops said UK will take advantage of the new satellite camp rule, but won’t overdo it.

Stoops said on the SEC spring football teleconference he and his staff will attend several camps in Florida and a couple in Ohio, among others. Freddie Maggard is currently working on a long look at what this means for recruiting, due out later this afternoon.

There will be a surprise guest on today’s show.

Tune in in the second hour to find out what mystery guest will join Matt Jones and Ryan Lemond in studio for a special KSR appearance.

    Do you think the special guest might be Marques Bolden!?

    I’ll bet that the surprise guest is Matthew Mitchell. He knew that the news of the latest transfer would come out yesterday. He knows how badly his last interview went here and wants another chance to address BBN

    Both of those guesses make sense to me, but I would lean toward KAT. 😉

    I love that Marcus got invited to the combine, hope he can prove his worth and get drafted. But how does he get an invite and Alex Poythress not?? Guess that is why I’m not an NBA scout.

    How is Alex not at the combine yet? This is BS. Dude is going to be a decent pro.

    On Cowherd’s comment: I mean, the dude ain’t wrong. When’s the last time you recall anyone calling UK football “good”? We get a “not bad” every once in a while, but rarely a “good.” So I don’t think calling us “no good” is breaking news here.

      Cowherd is quite wrong, seeing as Western Kentucky had a very impressive season this year and finished in the Top 25. Cowherd shows more and more that he talks about things he does not understand.
