Cal Heads To Chicago

Instead of spending an evening filled with the disappointing regret that came with spending 30 minutes watching Whitney, Kentucky coach John Calipari took his talents to Chicago to visit with 2013 star Jabari Parker.  Parker, who was dazzled by Coach K rolling up in a limo last week, is rated by Scout.com as the nation’s top small forward and third-best player in the class of 2013.  The 6’7″ wing, who happens to be a devout Mormon, is considering offers from BYU, Duke, Washington, Illinois, Michigan State, Missouri, UNC and Utah.  And he’s not afraid to compare himself to the greats.

    Perry Ellis’ mom was impressed by the UK contingent wearing suits. Sometimes it doesn’t take much.

    shoes I bet you never heard of black Jews either. What difference does his religion make? If Cal makes a trip to see him then he must be a good player and thats good enough for me.

    Jabari a Morman. Shabazz probably a Muslim. We can call them the M&M boys.

    Sorry, everybody– but “Jabari” is just sooo Duke sounding. It’s a Dookie name. It’s a lock.
