The NBA preseason is all about the players getting a chance to find their rhythm before the start of the regular season. Luckily for four former Kentucky Wildcats, they got the chance to find their rhythm on a court they are very familiar with.
Former Wildcats Willie Cauley-Stein, and John Wall referred to Lexington as a home for them.
“It’s just a cool feeling, it’s like coming home and playing pickup.” Cauley-Stein said.
Along with Cauley-Stein and Wall, former Cats DeMarcus Cousins and Skal Labissiere also returned to Rupp Arena Saturday evening to play in a NBA preseason game a day after Big Blue Madness.
The game was between the Sacramento Kings and the Washington Wizards, and the Kings would go on to beat the Wizards 124-119. Each teams’ defense did little to nothing to slow down their opponents offense.
