The next six months will see the likes of Beyonce, Justin Timberlake and Miley Cyrus all make appearances at the KFC Yum Center. None of those people will be the hottest to entertain the crowd of Louisvillians inside the arena.
That distinction belongs to Elisha "Bullet" Justice, the former Cardinal walk-on whom Card Chronicle helped make the Hottest Male Athlete on the planet back in the spring of 2011.
Here's a quick look back at that glorious occasion:
Thanks largely to your votes, Louisville point guard Elisha Justice was able to hold off a late surge from Australian rugby player David Williams and win TheSportsF*g.com's 2011 Hottest Male Athlete Tournament. That's right, there is not a human being on this planet right now who plays a sport and is hotter than Sexy Bullet.
I think this comment from the voting says it all:
It's a pleasure seeing Elisha in the lead after a poor beginning. His sexiness is completely natural and unplanned. The other guys are posers and models more than they are athletes. Even though he's barely out of his teen years, Elisha is more man these the other guys ever were. Comparing the photos of the two finalists, it's clear who's all about sports and for whom sexiness comes naturally, and who's all about posing for titillating photos. Go Elisha! Bring the championship hope to the Ville!
Justice left Louisville after appearing in 25 games for U of L's 2011-12 Final Four team, a season which saw him average 0.9 points per game. He averaged 2.4 points per game in 29 games as a freshman, when he spent the bulk of the season serving as Peyton Siva's primary backup at the point guard position. Justice received his Final Four ring before last season's exhibition game against Pikeville, a game he did not play in because of injury.
Bullet's return also gives us an excuse to relive this (albeit sans music):
I think everyone who's been around him agrees that Elisha is one of the nicest young men to ever wear the red and black, and it'll be great to have him back inside the Yum Center tonight.
