There was no bigger cheerleader for the Cats in Madison Square Garden on Tuesday night than John Wall. The former Kentucky star was a fixture on the sideline, leaping out of his courtside seat to cheer after each big play and dapping up potential future Cat Jonathan Kuminga in the crowd.
After the game, Wall spoke to the team in the locker room; yesterday, Kentucky shared the footage.

“Y’all got something special y’all can do, but you’ve gotta keep working.”
UPDATE: CoachCal.com released another video from the locker room of Calipari encouraging his players to follow Wall’s path.
