Need another reason to feel good about Kentucky freshman Edrice “Bam” Adebayo.
Well, you got it from former UK standout Michael Kidd-Gilchrist Saturday when he said during a press conference before a basketball camp at UK that he was impressed with John Calipari’s new players even though he had not yet played with them.
“I like Bam for sure, for sure. “And (De’aaron) Fox, Malik (Monk) and Isaiah (Briscoe) for sure,” Kidd-Gilchrit said.
He said he’s already excited to see what next season will be like for Calipari’s team.
But why Bam?
“He’s strong, a dog and he knows how to play the game,” Kidd-Gilchrist said.
