Wednesday Headlines: Kentucky Basketball Managers Secure Hilarious NIL Deal

Good morning, BBN!

Yes, you read that headline correctly; the Kentucky Basketball Managers, aka Waterboys, secured an NIL deal with Geddes Pool to encourage Lexington buyers to get a pool installed before the summer kicks off.

It’s an absolute genius idea and it just shows another reason as to why Kentucky Basketball is what it is.

You’re not going to find another program that the Basketball Managers can get an NIL deal, especially one as creative as this. Although, after this ad, that may change.

The world of NIL continues to prove itself as the wild wild west. It will be interesting to see how year 3 of NIL changes things, but for now, continue to enjoy the fun!
