NBA players returning to Lexington for pickup games has become somewhat of an annual summer tradition since John Calipari arrived and started churning out draft picks.
Those who return also get to see next year's team up close and personal, measured against their own games.
Two one-and-dones from Calipari's first team, DeMarcus Cousins and Eric Bledsoe, sent out the following tweets on Tuesday night giving a little preview of the team:
Cousins: “Gotta get back to Lex soon to get another run in with dem Wildcats. A lotta talent on this year’s team. Julius Randle is a beast!!”
Bledsoe: “Cuz, you should have stuck around to see the twins [Aaron and Andrew Harrison] and James Young. We gonna be straight this year. I was going hard against them too.”
And besides all that, Bledsoe referenced playing with Young -- who most everyone thinks is not on campus yet. So, more mysteries emerge.
