The World’s Most Famous Unibrow joins John Calipari in the latest edition of the Cal Cast to discuss why he went to Kentucky. Ahead of the 2018 recruiting season and Mo Bamba’s decision, Anthony Davis’ podcast appearance is timely.
Their candid conversation will surely bring a smile to your face. Unlike most interviews, instead of asking about his accomplishments, Calipari asks about how he was raised and what helped him reach unprecedented heights.
The podcast starts with a story about Calipari’s visit to Davis’ Inglewood, Chicago home. It doesn’t take long for Calipari to casually allude to a visit with Bamba in his Harlem home. “I just had a kid walk me around in the projects in Harlem thinking I would be intimidated.”
The episode isn’t entirely a subtle shout out to Bamba. They discuss a variety of subjects like…
— Growing up with a twin.
— The first time Cal saw Anthony Davis play: “You were a shooter, not a maker.”
— The struggles of going through an insane growth spurt.
— Davis’ early AAU struggles that led him to quit (temporarily).
— Did you know he took the fourth most shots on the National Championship team?
— The talk Darius Miller had with the 2012 team the sparked their run to the title.
— What the locker room was like at halftime of the Championship Game.
