Last week, Kentucky basketball fans waited for Nerlens Noel and Shabazz Muhammad to make a decision. No one knew what direction either was leaning, but everyone posed the question “are they coming to Kentucky?” And while most thought the answer was no, the answer turned out to be “yes” ( at least for Noel).
Tomorrow, Kentucky basketball fans find themselves in a similar yet totally different state of waiting. Will the 5 underclassmen that led the Wildcats to the NCAA tournament announce for the NBA? Many expect the answer to be the assumed yes, however a surprising no from one or many would be greeted with open arms.
Either way, Kentucky fans, embrace your players as you have all season long.
