LOOK: Tyler Ulis has a new UK tattoo

Tyler Ulis has never been shy about his Kentucky pride. He has found a new way to represent the blue and white.

This week the former UK point guard added some ink to his shoulder. Shared in a post on his Instagram story, the Kentucky Chucky is kind of terrifying.

After starting his professional career in Phoenix with Devin Booker, Ulis made a few pitstops in Golden State and Chicago. Waived by the Bulls in December, last year he averaged 23.3 points in four G-League Games.

If the tattoo is any indication, Ulis is willing to fight to earn another roster spot in the NBA.

    I love Tyler to death and he deserves the world! It’s sad that there’s really no spot for guys his size in the NBA. If you’re not at least 6’1 you’re expendable and that’s a shame.

    Love that dude! Big, big heart! Tyler is a throw back on how the game should be played! Prospects could learn from him.

    Phoenix should have kept him. I never understood that!

      Phoenix Suns are possibly the dumbest franchise in the NBA. Makes sense they didn’t. They were too cheap to keep Joe Johnson, then made the mistake of not putting up a fight for D’Antoni and Amar’e.

    Add him to the coaching staff. He did a hell of a job in the South Carolina game!
