Earlier this afternoon, NBA TV’s Lang Whitaker tweeted the video from his interview with former UK players De’Aaron Fox, Bam Adebayo and Malik Monk. At the beginning of the interview, Whitaker mentions he’s got “a bunch of Wildcats” with him, to which Monk replies: “Kentucky takeover… that’s what we call it.” When asked if that should be the official hashtag for the interview, Fox says it “might as well be.”
Throughout the rest of the interview, the reporter covers the basics: the incredible amount of former Calipari players who have been drafted, their improvements from college and the cities in which the guys will be playing next year.
One of the funnier moments comes when Bam discusses how he has improved “everything” in the past year. When Monk and Fox begin to laugh, Bam replies: “They’re laughing at me because I started out terrible.”
“Yeah, he was horrible,” Monk joked. “He had no post moves, he couldn’t shoot a jumper, I don’t know what he could do.”
