For whatever reason, Isaiah Briscoe is tired of talking about Kentucky and seemed agitated at the mere mention of his former school during the NBA Draft Combine.
“All the Kentucky questions, I don’t play for Kentucky no more,” Briscoe stated. “I’m just trying to start fresh.”
Here are some of his comments:
CHICAGO — To be clear: Isaiah Briscoe is tired of talking about Kentucky. Understandably, he got a lot of questions Friday at the NBA Combine about the place he played college basketball for the last two seasons. A ridiculous number of players have been drafted out of that program, which is Briscoe’s current (albeit unlikely) goal.
“All the Kentucky questions, I don’t play for Kentucky no more!” Briscoe yelped. “I’m just trying to start fresh.”
Maybe it bothers him that four other Wildcats are projected to be picked in the 2017 NBA Draft in June, but Briscoe is not. Perhaps it stings that the former McDonald’s All-American point guard had to play off the ball most of his UK career — and in the shadow of star guards Tyler Ulis and Jamal Murray as a freshman, then De’Aaron Fox and Malik Monk as a sophomore.
Whatever the reason, Briscoe seemed salty over the mere mention of his former school.
“I enjoyed my time at Kentucky, it was fine, but I moved on,” he said, declaring that his pro position will be point guard. “Obviously, I wasn’t playing point guard in college, but it is what it is. College is over with. Why we still talking about college? I’m starting a new chapter in my life.”
