The Pros at Cal’s Camp Speak Positively About Young Cats

(h/t Thomas Beisner)

John Calipari’s Pro Camp is in full swing this week, with Michael Kidd-Gilchrist reminding us once again why we love him so much– creating a number of photo opportunities with the young kids. Though Kidd-Gilchrist, Doron Lamb and Darius Miller are still young, they have become the old wise men, sharing their thoughts on the upcoming Wildcats we will see in action next season. The three provided plenty of insight, quotes and predictions about the young Cats to the media in attendance (h/t Kyle Tucker and Not Jerry Tipton for sharing many of these quotes).

On Ryan Harrow:

Doron Lamb discussed the crazy hopping ability of Harrow, but admitted that he would find it harder against the top college talent. But, “He’ll have a chance to dunk on some people.”

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist said he thinks Ryan Harrow will step right in. He mentioned talent, speed, finally describing him in more simplistic terms, “He’s just good.”

Darius Miller on the new team:

Darius Miller said that he has been able to see a number of the new UK team’s practices this summer. His overall impression was that he was impressed, and specifically pointed out the performances of Archie Goodwin and Alex Poythress, saying both are very good. “They’ll be able to step in and fill shoes.”

Darius Miller on title expectations for 2012-2013 team:

“It’s that way every year at Kentucky…it’s nothing new.”

Darius Miller on fighting for a spot in the pros:

“I’ve been fighting for a spot for a while now with these guys (Kidd-Gilchrist and Lamb). Nothing new.”

Doron Lamb on the new team:

“I think they’re going to have a great team to win it all this year.”

    This is all you can ask of a coach. To have a team that is in the running for the top spot every year. We might win or we might not but we will be capable. Tubby’s last 6 years and BCG 2 years we new before the season started that we had no chance. This is UK we don’t play for SEC titles we play for NC.
