Pro basketball has never held my interest. The NBA playoffs are in full swing, and my only question is…
“Any former UK players still in the mix?”
When pro ball and UK intersect, I’m in…if only briefly. That’s why I’m stoked about tonight’s NBA draft lottery, which takes place at 8pm right here in New York City.
With seven UK Wildcats in the lottery–and freshman forward Karl-Anthony Towns the projected #1 overall pick–I can’t wait to watch the action on ESPN.
As soon as my Wildcats find a home, I will wish them well, and then probably not think about pro ball again (until they start making headway and headlines for their respective teams).
That shouldn’t take long.

I had seen images online of the April 6th issue of Sports Illustrated, so I couldn’t wait to get mine in the mail.
Just look at that angle of Karl-Anthony Towns in action:
But then I got my issue today. And it looked like this:
Because apparently there are no college basketball fans in the Northeast.
I mean, how could there be? No teams from this area made the Final Four. And there couldn’t possibly be fans of Kentucky, Wisconsin, Michigan State or Duke outside their state lines, right?
(Well, probably not Duke.)
Don’t worry. I’ve already contacted SI and requested a copy of the Kentucky cover issue. And written a letter to the editor.
March Madness only comes once a year.

Okay, okay…but it is one of the greatest photobombs ever —
I had to get in on the action!
Great game, Karl!
