- Big Blue Madness - October 17, 2014 - Rupp Arena - 7:00 PM EST -
After our second practice this afternoon, I made pit stop in Charlotte to watch the Charlotte Bobcats and Los Angeles Clippers play. The game was part of an auction item we had during the Fantasy Basketball Experience over the summer to raise money for charity.
The great thing about the game is I got to see two of my sons, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist and Eric Bledsoe, while I was down there. Nothing makes me happier than seeing our guys succeed.
And nothing made me happier than being able to stand next to those two on the court. I am so proud of both of them, as I am of all of our guys.
As I left Charlotte, I left a little bit emotional after seeing them. Success is winning games and even a national title, but to me, significance is that picture above.
I wish I had time to see all of our guys play. Every year I look at their schedules and try to see what games I can make. Also, really happy to see Anthony Davis back out on the court. Looking forward to seeing John Wall back out there soon.
