James Young has advice for Cats feeling 40-0 pressure

Boston Celtics guard James Young knows a little bit about the pressure of 40-0 talk. His team last year at Kentucky had high expectations before the season ever tipped off. With possibly the best recruiting class ever assembled, 40-0 talk started before the team even got to campus last summer. After shrugging off a dismal regular season, UK made it all the way to the NCAA finals in amazing fashion.

This year’s team is already hearing the rumblings of a 40-0 season. Yesterday, James Young was in Lexington for Pro Camp. He talked about the pressure of a perfect season and had advice for this year’s team.
