Happy 35th Birthday to the man in the white suit, Samaki Walker

Who can forget the all white suit and hat that Samaki Walker wore to the 1996 NBA Draft? The best dressed man in the room was drafted 9th by the Dallas Mavericks and went on to an illustrious (cough cough) 10-year career in the league capped off by a championship with the Lakers in 2002. My greatest memory of Samaki (as I’m sure is true with most Card fans) was his triple-double against Kentucky his freshman year. Walker never really lived up to the hype throughout his college career, but will always be remembered for the time he brought UK to it’s knees. I wonder if he busts out the suit every now and then… you know, just for old times sake.

Today on the Sports Buzz…

It’s the return of the the man who squats 5 and benches 4, so you better show him some respect. His name is handsome Jimmy and you best bring your “A” game if you try to challenge his Louisville Cardinals. Jimmy will be joined by the Godfather of Louisville sports talk radio, Dugan Ryan, so the show should be killer. Dr. Keith Myrick of Specialty Orthopedics joins to break down all the injuries in the sports world and Bellarmine coach Scott Davenport come on to react to his opening round game in the GLVC tourney last night.

As always, you can catch the show live on the radio from 9-10 AM on 1080 AM, streaming on your PC through & blasting over your smartphone via the IHEARTRADIO app. Don’t miss it!!

This Day in Sports…

February 25, 1964 – In honor of Handsome Jimmy hosting the show today, this is dedicated to one of his idols, the GOAT Muhammad Ali. Then known as Cassius Clay, Ali knocked out the great Sonny Liston in the 7th round to capture his first heavyweight title. This was the last fight Ali would fight in as Clay. Less than a month later he was given the name Muhammad Ali by his Muslim leader.
