Former Kentucky players, including Eric Bledsoe, want to reunite: But where?
This isn’t quite the banana boat crew.
That LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Paul have talked about teaming up at some point in their careers hasn’t distracted much from the three superstars’ current situations. Similarly, a trio of former Kentucky Wildcat teammates talking about joining forces probably won’t come to fruition — not in the foreseeable future.
Still, it’s fun to think about.
Sacramento Kings center DeMarcus Cousins and Washington Wizards point guard John Wall told the Washington Post that they and Phoenix Suns point guard Eric Bledsoe have talked about reuniting. As for the possibility of that, well, you can ask each of the trio’s general managers if that’s even possible.
(Hint: Probably not).
Even between them, it’s a fight about where exactly they’d team up.
“They’re going to all come to Sac,” Cousins playfully proclaimed. “Come to Sac!”
And how does Wall react when Cousins pitches Sacramento?
“[Wall] wants me [in D.C.],” Cousins said. “Eric want us in Phoenix.
“Play with John and Eric again,” Cousins contemplated, “you never know what will happen. It’s the NBA, so hopefully one day he’ll be in a Sacramento uniform.”
For what it’s worth, Bledsoe and Wall remain under contract with their respect teams through 2018-19, while Cousins comes off the Kings’ books after the 2017-18 season.
