The NBA could be coming to Kentucky…sort of. We’ve already heard about preseason games to played in both the KFC Yum! Center and Rupp Arena in the fall, now rumors are circulating about a potential University of Kentucky v. University of North Carolina alumni game being played in Rupp as well.
Kentucky Sports Radio is reporting that the game could feature several NBA players from the two schools, with John Wall and Harrison Barnes leading the squads as captains.
Given all the talent to come out of UK and UNC in recent years this would be a great event for state and fans of basketball within the state. We’ll take the NBA here anyway we can get it at this point. Hopefully there will be more information leaking on this soon.
