With Netflix’s Stranger Things dominating pop culture talk, we draw parallels between the show’s main characters and Louisville basketball players.

Just as Stranger Things’ third season on Netflix has the world on the edge of their seats, the potential of the 2019-20 Louisville basketball team this summer is having the same effect on Cards fans.

Louisville basketball returns the bulk of their scoring and rebounding from a year ago, and brings in seven new players to help take them to a new level.

What has Cads fans even more excited is that the national media has taken a liking to the prospects of this year’s team, thus confirming what many have been feeling since head coach Chris Mack secured his deep recruiting class.

At Big Red Louie, the only thing distracting us from the 2019-20 season is the third season of the critically acclaimed binge-watch worthy Stranger Things on Netflix. Just as we love the characters on the court for the Cards, we find ourselves intertwined in the lives of the characters.

So, in the interest of those who can’t help but compare things in their real-life with their favorite TV shows, we decided to combine the two.

Which Louisville basketball players compare to your favorite Stranger Things characters?
