Yahoo’s Pat Forde trolls Kentucky basketball over draft night

The 2016 NBA Draft saw three players selected through two rounds, but all three of the players suffered falls much greater than would have been believed prior to Thursday night’s festivities.

However, despite watching their players fall, the Wildcats were happy to show off their new trio of NBA talent.

That's a wrap on #NBADraft2016. Another banner night. Three more picks pushes total to 28 in the last seven years.

Of course, there were plenty of people ready to troll the school for its performance on the night, including Yahoo’s Pat Forde. Forde was quick to take a shot at the Wildcats over their choice of words.

Use of the word "banner" is debatable.

It’s a bit of a cheap shot towards the Wildcats, but Forde also has a point.

Things could have gone a lot better for Kentucky throughout the night, but ultimately, they can hang their hats on the fact that they’ve placed three more players in the NBA and that will certainly pay off with recruiting.
