The following is from the eBay page hosting the auction:

“You are bidding on a pair of custom air Jordan 1’s custom made for Willie Cauley Stein of the Sacramento Kings. These were customized by True Blue Customs of Lexington, Ky.

KARL-ANTHONY TOWNS SIGNS WITH NIKE

CLgFHfdUkAEGXBr

Both the #1 and #2 picks sign with Nike. Karl Anthony-Towns and D’Angelo Russell are all smiles as they embark on their NBA career as the latest stars to be on the Nike Roster. Karl, from Kentucky, and Russell from Ohio State(from the city of Louisville) bring a Kentucky flavor to the Nike family. Here’s what Nike had to say about Karl Anthony-Towns.

“The number one pick in the 2015 draft, Karl-Anthony Towns played at University of Kentucky from 2014 to 2015. He averaged 10.3 points and 6.7 rebounds per game, and was named SEC Freshman of the Year and All-SEC first-team. Prior to playing at Kentucky, Towns was recipient of the 2014 Gatorade Player of the Year award. He participated in both the 2014 Nike Hoops Summit and Jordan Brand Classic.

“For me, the biggest thing is going to be making the playoffs with Minnesota after an 11-year drought. If I was blessed to be able to take them to the playoffs, that would be a big step in my career,” said Towns.”

You can read more about Karl Anthony-Towns and D’Angelo Russell at the Nike News site.

Coach Cal, 2016-17 Class “Could Be Best Class Ever”

Calpresident

Andy Katz over at ESPN.com just put out an article where Coach John Calipari addresses  2016-2017 recruiting where he had this to say:

“This year’s recruiting class, where we’re in the middle of right now, could be one of our best ever,” Calipari said. “The kids that I’m seeing that we’re involved with that I feel really good about. This could be our best class ever. And that’s a pretty scary statement coming from who we’ve been able to recruit over the last 25 years.”

Kentucky is pursuing players ranked among the top 10 in the ESPN 100 for 2016 — 6-foot-10 Harry Giles (No. 1 in the ESPN 100) , 6-8 Josh Jackson (No. 3), 6-2 Dennis Smith Jr. (No.4), 6-3 Malik Monk (No. 5), 6-5 Kobi Simmons (No. 6) and 6-7 Miles Bridges (No. 7).

Jamal Murray Kentucky Crazies

John Calipari had this to say about Jamal Murray:

“I think he’ll come in and be able to score for us,” Calipari said. “You watch that game (against the USA), you’ve gotta put the ball in his hands We knew he was good, we had recruited him so we knew, we just weren’t sure he’d reclassify. … If you’re a smart kid and you can leave that year early, like Karl Towns and he ended up being the number one pick. He should’ve gone back to high school? When you’re of the right age and you have the academics you should do it. That’s what we didn’t know about Jamal.”

You can read more from Andy Katz at ESPN.com here, including what he said about Skal Labissiere and how “that other kid” was passed up by Karl Anthony-Towns last season.
