    Humble and hungry. Saying all the right things and it’s believable as genuine.

    Give me a team full of kid’s like him and I’ll be pleased with what ever the season results are. Young men like him with his attitude no personal first playing for the program. your Fan’s focus on the season as a whole not the June draft is what KY basketball need more of

    This years Mychal Mulder. Legend in the gym, dead-eye shooter, limited athleticism, and will occasionally get to play, and will look good, but will not be a consistent part of the rotation. He is the motivation Calipari is using to light a fire under Johnson and Herro. I’ve Met Baker, he’s genuinely a good kid, and I hope more than everyone Calipari uses him, but history shows Cal will shrink his bench as tourney gets closer, and no way Baker plays over Johnson, quickly, Herro, or Hagans barring foul trouble.

    That comment was not intended to be a dig at Baker at all, and honestly not at Calipari either. Just been hearing all the people saying how much more he needs to play, and we need “guys like him”, which I’m not sure exactly what that means. He’s a great kid, seems humble, and he could be a real player next year, but people that are expecting him to come in this year and take over, I think will be disappointed.
