I heard some good scuttlebutt this weekend that is worth sharing. A couple of sources tell me that the NBA is close to finalizing a deal that would make the Sacramento Kings and New Orleans Pelicans play an exhibition game in Rupp Arena the night after Big Blue Madness. The game would of course bring Anthony Davis, Willie Cauley-Stein and Demarcus Cousins (if he is still on the team) back to Rupp and likely allow them to be in town for Big Blue Madness the night before. It would then be part of a mega-weekend that would make Lexington the place to be…Kentucky vs Auburn on Thursday night (Oct 14) at Commonwealth…Big Blue Madness on Friday night…Keeneland on Saturday during the day…and then Saturday night with the Kings vs the Pelicans.
That is a massive sports weekend and if it finalizes, get your hotel room now.
