My main takeaway from yesterday's UK Basketball Media Day? This team is A LOT of fun. After we were done asking them all the boring basketball stuff (which you'll see plenty of in the coming week), I spent the last ten minutes of interview time trying to get to know the guys off the court and having some fun. I think you'll like the results.

What's Bam's favorite Katy Perry song?
In the UK Media Guide, Bam Adebayo, aka grown ass man who breaks rims and shatters backboards in his free time, admitted that his favorite singer is Katy Perry.

Bam didn't rule out coming out to a Katy Perry song at Madness, so stay tuned...
Brad didn't get birthday brownies from his mom before he was on the team

Two out of three Wildcats agree: kittens are cuter than baby goats
I agree with Sacha on this one, but really, there are no losers in this debate.
Sacha Killeya-Jones gave Tai Wynyard a little grief over his accent
Finally, Outback or Cracker Barrel?
I'm sure the debate will still rage on.
