    I was a big fan of his by the time he was a junior. I still remember in 2012 when he hit that three from the top of the key and tied the final four game against us. Most worried I had been in the entire tournament.

    If he was about 3 inches taller he would’ve been a decent pro.

    I really had no issues with anyone on your 12 or 13 teams other than Chane and Trez. They were both great players, just a little too animated for my taste. Easy group to cheer for if you aren't a Kentucky fan ;)

    And Siva won a title more recent than UK has as a program. Accomplished more that every player that’s passed through UKs one and done carousel in the past 6 years. Is that Relevant? It was wall vs Siva. Not UK vs siva

    When did he win a title? Please provide a link showing a valid title.

    Also, Anthony Davis accomplished more in one year than Siva could in 10

    ....a title has to exist to count. 2013 'title' doesn't exist.

    Love watching trez play for the Clippers. Dude is a player.

    chane totally wasted away his talent. Could’ve made a lot of money.

    True dat.

    2013 championship game happened and we won, regardless of the ncaa’s arbitrary vacate. I was there, and it happened. The rest is bs politics trying to ruin our university.

    It’s always funny how UL, UNc and other fans like to throw up cheating and the NCAA when it comes to Kentucky but when it’s their team cheating doesn’t matter because they still won it!Laughing

    I don’t do that, but good use of a broad generalization. And we still won it. Strippers/hookers did not help us go 35-5 and win the ship. But y’all already know that, you guys just like to play coy and abide to the NCAAs rules when they don’t apply to your team personally. That’s the ironic part. Winking

    how did the 4 point guards at UK do in the Siva time frame
    that would be a much better comparison

    apparently UK has followed NCAA rules for as long as you can remember
    so how is that playing coy

    UL won a ill-gotten championship
    the NCAA took it away for cheating
    the game took place but the ill-gotten results were removed

    had the same thing happened at UK i would not be trying to claim that championship that no longer exists

    also it is not "arbitrary" when you blatantly break the rules

    Bullshit, you know you’d claim it. And there’s an asterisks beside it. However we won that game and I was there. They can’t take away a physical game experience where we won a title. I guess they can erase it from their meaningless record book, but cherry pick who they punish? Dumb. We won, and we have 3 titles. Also other programs have broken the “rules” and still have championships. That’s why their “rule book” holds no weight. Also, why the NBA is a much more attractive product to me now. NCAA is crooked, and everyone knows it.

    I count UL's title until some shithead comes along and talks shit about UK, then I take it away from him.

    It happened, but I reserved the right to count it or don't count it at anytime.

    you won the game and forfeited it because of cheating and breaking the very rules of the organization that awards the championship
    the record book is where the championships are listed, yours is not there
    you have two titles
    maybe the UL player that sued the NCAA to get his records restored should have also sued his former teammates and the assistant coach for costing him that title

    no i would not claim it
    earn it, don't cheat
    if you cheat and get caught you deserve the punishment and should be man enough to accept it

    i agree on the cherry picking, UNC should have also been punished
    this has nothing to do with the NBA

    So if stripper gate or Academic fraud happened at UK like it did at UL and UNc and UK won a title in that time frame what would those two fan bases say about UK? Be honest!

    Meh we won it. NCAA is a joke and that’s why NBA is at an all time high with viewership. The corruption with NCAA makes it a joke. I’ve honestly watched more pro basketball than ncaa this year aside from our games.

    ul can always leave the NCAA
    they are not forced to be a member, but when they became a member they did agree to follow the rules and/or accept the punishment for breaking the rules

    "You really think strippers made our 4 star players who had already committed before that play better lol."

    that really does not matter
    per the rules, the moment a player accepts impermissible benefits they become ineligible
    the ul players accepted the "whore" benefits long before the title

    The rules are cherry picked, and only apply to certain programs. That’s why the ncaa is a joke. Their consistency and integrity are non-existent.

    cherry picked or not, ul had players and an assistant coach break the rules long before that title game

    which program(s) are you referring to that got caught breaking the rules and were not punished?

    That wasn't my point. Several UofL fans stated all year long that Siva > Wall, which is hilarious.

    But come on, Wall was in college 1 year, do you realize the college career Wall would have had if he stayed 4 years like Siva?

    No bc the argument was Siva would be a bigger pickup for our program than Wall would be for yours. Not Siva vs Wall and the next three PGs u signed after wall.

    But wall wasn’t gonna stay four years, anyone with half an eye knew that if he had seen him play half a game. This argument was basically the argument about whether it better off recruiting one and done phenoms or 4 year players. And someone said Siva will have a better college career in his 4 years that wall will in his one and UK fans snowballed it into saying we thought siva was a better player than Wall, which is ludicrous.
