Terrence Jones: yet another Kentucky Wildcats NBA first round pick

terrence jones kentucky

There will be at least five, possibly six Kentucky Wildcats taken in the first round of this NBA Draft this June 28th, and yes we know that’s just plain nuts. All the “league” level talent coming out of Lexington, some of the guys get lost in the shuffle and forgotten. Everyone knows Anthony Davis, and most people know Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, but what about Terrence Jones, who sits at the edge of the lottery picks?

Jones came to UK with Brandon Knight and Doron Lamb, and has already bought a Cadillac for his mom in anticipation of the draft.

Is Kentucky star Michael Kidd Gilchrist the Next Scottie Pippen?

Michael Gilchrist

During the McDonald’s All-American Game, ESPN college basketball analyst Jay Williams called Kentucky recruit and MAA co-MVP Michael Gilchrist the “next Scottie Pippen.”  With his versatility and ability to get after it on the defensive end, that comparison is actually not too far-fetched.

Athletes continue making rap videos, and the music continues to be unlistenable. When will these crazy kids ever learn? Kids today and their wild be-boppin music.

Kentucky Wildcats reserves Kyle Wiltjer and Jarrod Polson celebrated the Wildcats’ victory over Kansas, giving them the national championship of college basketball by making a rap video celebrating the big win.

Yet another anti-Anthony Davis, anti-Kentucky picture

anthony-davis-bert

Anthony Davis has answered questions about his unibrow all season long. And about being people making fun of him for it. He doesn’t shy away from it; he embraces it. The national player of the year and future #1 pick in the NBA draft isn’t changing himself for you, or the funny gifs and jpegs you make.

Or the ones below. Can you feel the Kentucky Wildcats hatred out there? It’s getting to be almost Duke like. Or New York Yankees like. Remember, every year UK wins the title, the Yankees win the World Series. Watch the World Series odds change significantly after Calipari cuts down the nets tonight.

Kentucky’s Anthony Davis, his unibrow, targetted by Florida Gator fans

anthony-davis

Kentucky’s Anthony Davis is a phenomenal college player who is on track to accomplish a rare grand slam: “national player of the year, national defensive player of the year, national freshman of the year, and the #1 pick in the NBA Draft. It’s a rare feat.

Davis has been incredible, The Chicago native from Charter Perspectives high school has more blocks than 300 teams. He has a handful of SEC and UK blocks records already, and he hasn’t even been there a year. Now that we’ve talked about what he has going for him, let’s talk about what he doesn’t.

Simply put, Davis is unfortunate looking; especially with that giant unibrow. He’s about fun to look at it, as he is to interview. And trust me, he is one terrible interview. But for more Davis bashing I turn to the Florida Gators student section, via Busted Coverage, who had a great time, at the expense of Davis’ Frida Kahlo type feature, and general unsightliness

Future #1 NBA draft pick Anthony Davis: mom celebrates his wicked unibrow

anthony-davis-and-mother

Kentucky Wildcats super freshman Anthony Davis is the best player in college basketball right now. He’s got fame up the wazoo, and he’ll soon have millions of dollars when he becomes the #1 pick in the NBA Draft this June. Oh wait, he plays for John Calipari, meaning he’s already likely getting paid lots of money….hey, hey! No of course, I kid Calipari and his recruits. I’m just kidding about that.

Anyways, now what we’ve established what Davis has going for him in life: the guy did put up a quadruple double in high school, now we can make fun what he doesn’t have going for him.

Future Kentucky Wildcats Goodwin, Poythress dominate McDonald’s All-American game

Kentucky Wildcats fans have a lot to be excited about in the present, as they’re taking on their hated rival Louisville in the 2012 Final Four, but last night’s McDonald’s All-American Game also might have made UK fans think about the future for a bit.

Usually, you don’t think about next year’s recruiting class until the season is over. However, the way incoming UK freshmen Archie Goodwin and Alex Poythress performed in the exhibition brought thoughts of next year here already.

And perhaps it helped in the recruiting of Muhammad Shabazz? Who’s narrowed his college choices down to four.

Muhammad Leads West To McDonald’s All-American Game Win

 Sure, the McDonald’s All-American game is an exhibition; the outcome serving as a backstory to the talent on the court. But when the West team’s 25-point lead was cut to four in the final minutes, it became imperative to earn a win.
“We’re talking about the 24 best players in the country, not just 12 (on the West team),” said Gordy Kerkman, head coach of the West. “You really knew, it sort of felt good to be 24 up, but you never feel safe.”

Future Kentucky Wildcat Kyle Wiltjer wins Prep 3-PT Competition

The Kentucky Wildcats are back on the biggest stage of college basketball. Saturday night, they’ll go for their first national title since 1998 when they take on UConn in the Final Four.

And their future might be even brighter than the present, as they lead the way with four recruits in the McDonald’s All-American Game on Wednesday. Duke has three, and a few other schools have two.

One of the jewels in that top-rated recruiting class is 6-10 forward Kyle Wiltjer; who made his name known nationally Monday night at the Jam Fest.

Video: Kentucky Wildcats “300” movie spoof, revenge vs. IU Hoosiers

anthony davis

The top overall seed Kentucky Wildcats lost to the Indiana Hoosiers earlier this year on an iconic Christian Watford three pointer, but this video says they won’t let it happen again. We’ll see tomorrow night.

Check out this “300” movie spoof featuring Anthony Davis as King Leonidas telling (Davis is much more articulate here than in real life) the Hoosiers that he is out for revenge for the previous loss. At Coach Cal’s command, Davis finishes off Watford and the Hoosiers to avenge the first game.

Ashley Judd also makes an appearance in this clip, because ”This is UK!” She has to.

What happened to Kentucky Wildcats superfan Ashley Judd’s face?

Is this a botched surgery? Sure, she looks younger and less gaunt, but she also looks like The Joker. She now has Renee Zellweger type “smush face.” I’m speaking of course about Kentucky Wildcats superfan Ashley Judd.

After the jump, see her before/after picture.
