John Wall is a Freak of Nature

At risk of falling victim to the hype and without seeing the young man play a single game in a Kentucky uniform, we here at the BBLD must pose the question: Is John Wall the best recruit in UK history?

Look at the brute power and burst he shows off in this poster tomahawk from last year’s Rucker Park Elite 24 tourney.

Regardless of whether or not Wall meets his stratospheric expectations, one thing is certain. Dude is an extraordinary athlete. Few players of his size possess the power and jumping ability that he makes look easy. Comparable leapers like Lebron, Vince Carter, Kobe and MJ come in a 6’6 to 6’8 package. Wall is listed at 6’3.

UK is getting a special player for one year in John Wall. Enjoy him while you can Cat fans.

1. This loss means nothing. UK lost a game on the road in bizarre circumstances vs a very good team. If anything,...
Time to put Texas A&M to bed and get tuned up for a high seed in the big dance.
Epic collapse by UK tonight. Still something not right with this team.
Tough loss over the weekend, but the Cats showed heart...they'll be back.
