Kentucky Summer Basketball camps are upon us and it only means one thing: little kids getting swatted into the third row. It’s never too early to let kids know that real basketball players won’t let them shoot uncontested. “Hand down, man down” is taught entirely too late, in my opinion. We can always count on there being one hilarious block on unsuspecting campers. Here are a couple including one from this year.
Very excited to see what Keion Brooks can do against 18-22 year olds. Now, a throwback to last year with Nick Richards.
“For the kids.” The slogan is usually applied to Kentucky’s DanceBlue 24 dance marathon that supports childhood cancer research, but I feel like it can be applied to teaching kids life lessons too. Even Demarcus Cousins, long after he has left Lexington, is keeping the tradition alive.
Word of advice to these kids: Never meet your heroes.
