"Former Kentucky players, now in the NBA, will return to the basketball capital of the world to play the Dominican Republic National Team - coached by John Calipari - in an exhibition game at the legendary Rupp Arena."
It was almost too much to handle to have all these amazing players under one roof! It was truly every UK wildcat fan's dream! I mean Rajon Rondo and John Wall on the same court makes me wanna pee my pants a little. It was glorious!
Sporting our KY Blue
I never get tired of this view!
Here is a glance of just some of the players that played in the exhibition game.
Mr. John Wall himself. Here in Lexington, he has a shot named after him at our local bars. Ummm hello?!? have you ever heard of the John Wall dance. It was a youtube hit last basketball season and of course he had song name after him too. He helped bring KY basketball back to the TOP. Right where we belong.
Did I mention he was the number one draft pick? He now plays for the Washing Wizards. He is a local celebrity around these here parts.
Mr. Rajon Rondo.
A born and raised Ky native. Played at UK for two years. You made know him better as a.....
Boston Celtic. Us wildcat fans love cheering our UK players in the big leagues. No matter what color they sport, we know they bleed blue.
Tayshaun Prince. Hail the KING! He is one of my all time favorite UK Players. Tayshaun led our team to our last national championship in 1998.
He now wins national championships for the Detroit Pistons. We loved having him back in the bluegrass last Monday night!
And who can forget about Demarcus Cousins? He brought some serious swagger back to our winning tradition.
He was part of the 2009-2010 season that produced not one, not two, not three, but FIVE NBA first round draft picks. Not trying to brag or anything ....hehe
We also had Jodie Meeks grace the big blue nation last night. He is most famous for scoring 54 points in a single game versus our arch nemesis, the University of Tennessee.
And now plays for the 76ers.
