Former Kentucky forward Patrick Patterson played one season under John Calipari before graduating early and entering his name into the NBA Draft. Patterson was selected 14th overall pick in 2010 by the Houston Rockets. He was averaging 11.6 points, 4.7 rebounds in 25.9 minutes per game for Houston. During his time at Kentucky, he was part of a dynamic Kentucky front-court that featured him alongside Demarcus Cousins. Patterson and Cousins will be reunited in Sacramento after the Rockets traded Patterson, along with Cole Aldrich, Toney Douglas, and $1 million for former Kansas Jayhawk Thomas Robinson. Along with Cousins, Patterson will also be playing alongside former ‘Cat and fan favorite Chuck Hayes. In the 2012 National Championship game, Doron Lamb led all scorers with 22 points and made 3 of 6 from three. The rest of the story is history, the ‘Cats took home #8. After picking the confetti out of his hair, Lamb declared for the NBA Draft and was selected 42nd overall by the Milwaukee Bucks. Since arriving in the NBA, Lamb has had limited success on the floor. His best night was against Chicago, when he scored 8 points and made 3 of 3 from the field. Lamb has not made an appearance in an NBA game since January 5th,  and will now be suiting up for a new team. The Orlando Magic received Lamb, Tobias Harris, and Beno Udrih in a trade that sent former Duke guard J.J Redick, Ish Smith, and Gustavo Ayon to the Bucks.   While Patterson and Lamb were on the move to other cities, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist will still be making his moves in Charlotte. After making the move from the hospital bed back to the basketball court after a scary concussion, Kidd-Gilchrist made a huge move up, and over Greg Monroe of the Detroit Pistons. Check out, and enjoy this nasty MKG special delivery.

There can't be anything more basic when it comes to sports then remembering what it is you are doing--playing a game. What are games supposed to be? Fun.
