There is a truly astounding story about to break regarding UK basketball. It is way bigger than Coach Cal’s 1st 90 days. Even bigger than Xavier Henry as a possibility in Wildcat Blue. Even bigger than UK vs. Duke next year at Freedom Hall. It will change the course of basketball in America forever and always.
Two separate but extremely reliable sources, one a long time high school friend of John Caliipari, the other, a fellow who eats lunch with Mitch Barnhart several times a week, have confirmed the basic details.
UK is very close to announcing a jump from the SEC to the NBA. This would obviously be for basketball only. They would remain in the conference as usual for all other sports.
I’m advised that David Stern met with UK officials this afternoon. The Cats would be placed in the Southeast Division of the Eastern Conference. I’m told an announcement could come as early as Thursday, depending on whether a university Board of Trustees meeting can be held by then to approve the move. I’m advised Stern has already received approval from the requisite number of NBA franchise owners for the addition.
I have no further details at this time but will advise as soon as I know anything else.
