Warp speed . . . engage

October 16, 2009

There’s a great post by Mark Story over at kentuckysports.com on the mega boost of adrenalin John Wall and Eric Bledsoe are expected inject into the Wildcats this year.  The lickety-split Wall and Bledsoe are described as “blurs” on the court,  with Wall immodestly claiming he’s the fastest and Bledsoe dubbing himself as the Hermes of the hoops.  Story observes though that Wall and Bledsoe are not just fast, “they are fuel-injected jets who also bring both basketball skill and know-how.”  Story predicts the upcoming season as being “the return of basketball with a rumba beat.”  So, shall we dance?

Here’s some video of the dynamic duo’s fast and fancy footwork.

After some less than serious discussions about Pitino-gate this week, Lexington Herald-Leader sportswriter, Mark Story, offers a thoughtful and compelling recommendation that Pitino should resign in the midst of this scandal.  Story urges the resignation not just because of Pitino’s behavior in and of itself but because “it’s the right thing to do for the family he has embarrassed.”  The wise counsel also suggests that doing so will allow Pitino to someday return to the sport like various coaches before him who have been sullied by scandal.  Read the story here.
