Former Kentucky Hoopsters Getting Respect

1
"At the annual Rookie Photo Shoot in August, NBA.com surveyed 40 rookies about the best in their group. Wizards point guard John Wall, the top pick in the Draft, is clearly at the top of the class, but he's not the only Kentucky guy, nor the only one with a chance to win Rookie of the Year."

If you scroll down to the bottom righthand corner of the above link, you will see a really classy 2010 NBA pre-draft video. Keep an eye out and you’ll be sure to recognize some faces, and the faces you recognize are fabulous.

Patrick Patterson and Beatboxing

If you like Patrick Patterson, and I know you do, click on the above link to listen to a short clip that contains his attempt at beatboxing. I fully admit to knowing absolutely nothing about the term "beatboxing" until I ran across this clip, but apparently beatboxing is yet another thing on the long list of things that our dear sweet Patrick is quite good at.

NBADraft.net Latest Mock Draft

18

This is just one of the many mock drafts out there, of course, but this mock currently lists Wall, Cousins, Patterson, Orton and Bledsoe all going in the first round. There is no way to know for sure about draft order and lottery teams this early, but it's still fun to look at mock drafts and to speculate on where our boys might end up if they all stay in the draft, and which NBA teams we might be watching with newfound interest next season.

Ten Teams to Avoid When Bracket-Picking

+

No, UK didn’t make this list, and obviously this is just one or a few people's opinion and shouldn’t be taken totally to heart, but I thought this list was interesting. Florida making the list didn’t really shock me and actually made me smile as I didn’t see them making the field in the first place and I pretty much expected to see Purdue on this list, but some of these teams totally surprised me.
