Kentucky Wildcats’ message to fans on upcoming season

And Bam hates being told he looks like Dwight Howard.

The 2016-17 Kentucky Wildcats will soon be hitting the court for a new season.

This year promises to be another special one as John Calipari has assembled a team of immense talent, but also one of great character and charismatic players. Whether it’s new faces like De’Aaron Fox or battle-tested vets like Dominique Hawkins, this is an amazing group of young men that UK fans will love cheering on this year.

Ahead of the season opening, the Cats spoke with KSTV to give UK fans a message about the upcoming season, thanking fans for support, expressing excitement for the new season, and more.

Oh, and Bam Adebayo looks like Dwight Howard, while Malik Monk listens to country music, so there’s that. I’m sure UK would be happy with Bam playing like Dwight.

They also did the smile challenge with Dom, because the man can’t go a second without letting that smile out.
