John Calipari texts Devin Booker every day

cal-mib

Last week, we told you about Devin Booker, the 2014 shooting guard who picked up a scholarship offer from the Cats on Wednesday. Since getting that offer, Booker tells Anthony Wireman that he and Calipari have been texting–every day:

“I’ve been texting with Calipari daily,” Booker told Wireman, who joked that he didn’t picture Cal as being much of a texter. Booker’s response? “Neither did I!”

Things Cal and Booker text about? We’ll use the best two in tonight’s night post.

    If this were Tom Crean or Pitino we would jump all over it to make fun. I thought I remember last year Cal saying that he isnt big on texting kids a lot? I think It was Jahlil Okafor who said that Cal told him “Your 17, what could we be talking about all the time?”

    pretty sure one of the cal-isms is something like, “im 50, he’s 17. what are we going to talk about? im not going to text & call a recruit a lot unless he wants me to.”

    2 – Make fun of them for what, texting? No, only when they text creepy stuff. Texting is the best way to keep in touch with the recruits since no one wants to have a 20-minute convo everyday.

    Andrew Wiggins’ father wants him to go to Kansas or Florida State. UK and UNC are second tier.

    I’m glad that Cal is going after more and more shooters. We didn’t have a Lamb last year, this year we have Young and Aa. Harrison, hopefully we get Booker. I don’t think a team full of slashers and athletic wings is going to win a championship.

    Cal: “I like how you play, but UK isn’t for everybody! I can’t protect you here and I make no promise on playing time. You’ve got to come and compete and earn your spot here. We’re a players first program and you’ve got to sacrifice yourself for the team.”

    Booker: “k”

    At least that is how texts/conversations with my kids go……without all the stuff about playing basketball for UK, that is.

    Cal: Forget about the potential championship, the millions you will make in the NBA, and the adoration of the BBN for next century. If you come to UK, you will get brownies on your birthday.

    Cal- You know, that’s how the plague started, back in the day. It was from a little disgusting birdbath in someone’s backyard, rats made sex to birds in it and created a whole new type of AIDS.

    Cal – Do you want your dreams to come true? Man up and come to UK and compete with MDVIP players everyday. This is the special forces of basketball, not everyone can handle it.
    Booker – I’m ready

    Pitino – come L1C4 (accidentally attached dick pic and not the New Tat.). Damn technology
    Booker – ? I sent this to the local authorities.
