We have no idea who Baldy on the right is, but on the left is Louisville 6-foot-8 forward Juan Palacios. In the middle is the woman both are trying to get lucky with.
The Cardinals were in Vegas last week for some preseason tournament and it appears that Palacios and some coaches made the most of the Sin City nightlife.
From some Las Vegas publication, via the invaluable Ben Maller:
Our sources say assistant coach Walter McCarty and Palacios were in the LAX nightclub's VIP section early Thursday with several male friends, including a young white man who appeared to be a seven-footer. Palacios, 22, is injured and has not played this year. Sixth-ranked Louisville lost to unranked Brigham Young University on Friday, 78-76.A bottle of Patron is $400? Fuck. Do they lace it with heroin?
A bottle of $400 Patron was charged to an Eric Scott's credit card and a bottle of Veuve Clicquot, which goes for about $300, was paid for in cash.
The school's basketball media guide lists an Eric Scott as director of basketball operations.
And Walter McCarty is with Louisville? Isn't that like sacrilegious for a guy who went to Kentucky?
We have a hunch too -- always trust a hunch -- that Palacios' pickup line to the pictured woman went like this:
"Hey. I'm Juan and I'm black. Once you go basketball player you never go back. Wait. Fuck...I have a gigantic penis."
