Cats Illustrated recently sat down with Coach Calipari to discuss a host of things, including the prospects of next year’s team. With Ryan Harrow penciled in as the starting point guard for next season, this will be the first time Calipari will have an experienced player at the helm of his team in a very long time. Calipari thinks Harrow brings a lot of things to the table for next season, like a better scoring mentality than Derrick Rose at this point in his career:
Cats Illustrated: Let’s talk a little about this year’s team. Ryan Harrow is a little different from some of the point guards you’ve had. And they’ve all been different, but he’s physically not as big as some of the other guys. How differently will he play?
Calipari: He’s physically not as tough. But he puts his head on the rim. He’s fast and quick and good with the ball. They’re all different. He shoots it better than everybody other than maybe Brandon (Knight). He has better scoring ability than even Derrick (Rose) coming in. Derrick didn’t want to score the ball. We had to make him. He doesn’t score like Tyreke (Evans), but that was Tyreke’s thing. He was going to shoot it.
Wow, those are pretty strong words. But if anyone knows his players, its Coach Cal. What do you think? Is Cal on to something or is this a scare tactic for teams that haven’t seen Harrow in about a year? Let us know.
