UK’s “Breakfast Club”

Today Coach Cal spoke of a new voluntary workout a handful of his players are doing in the mornings. He said four or five guys on the team have started a “Breakfast Club” where they get up early and lift weights together and then eat breakfast. He wouldn’t tell us which guys are doing it — or what they’re eating for breakfast — so we’ll leave that up to you to guess in the comments section.

Cal pointed out that Michael Jordan started a breakfast club in Chicago during the 95-96 season when they won a record 72 games. They won the title that year.

My guess: Darius Miller, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, Anthony Davis, Terrence Jones, Doron Lamb; Cinnamon Toast Crunch

    Probably not Terrence Jones, it’s hard to wake up and lift weights after those 2:30 in the morning excursions. (Humor people!)

    Terrence won’t get off the bench, no way he’ll get outta bed. I’d say it’s Wiltjer.

    Maybe throw in some coffee, plus the Wall Street Journal.

    There is no doubt whatsoever in my mind that one of the kids getting up early and lifting weights is MKG.

    That much is certain.

    Wheaties.

    7, EXACTLY what I was thinking. MKG…probably Miller — and the other three could be anyone. And I think it’s obvious that they eat Wheaties. Breakfast of Champions.

    No doubt in my mind they are eating pop tarts

    Miller and MKG are supposedly tight, so I would guess those two. I’d throw Wiltjer in there too. Who knows on the rest.

    Wiltjer, Polson, Hood, Malone, Long

    Raisin Bran

    Agree with #13. I’d add Lamb given his comments on push-ups and sit-ups every night. I’d bet my house on MKG being there.
    They eat Boo Berry Cereal.



  16. MKG-14

    MKG is definitely one of them…he tweeted out this morning that he had already worked out.



  17. Cristoforouk
    12:48 pm December 19, 2011 Permalink

    Lamb, Wiltjer, and Davis are the ones who need it most. I would hope all three of them would be there.

    Jones is WAY to hung over that early in the morning to be working out



  25. PutThatOnDeAndreLiggins

    Miller, MKG, Lamb, Davis, Teague.

    I believe its the 5 guys that MKG brings on the court with him when he plays. Rest of the team is ZZZ’ing. He has Gun powder and raw meat for breakfast.

    #23, let’s only hope.

    My guess would be all the players with an actual chance to play in the league – some Kardashian



  30. dhighdrated

    definitely Lamb, cause he tweeted “practice” early this morning.

    I owuldn’t even begin to think who’d be the 5, my hopes are that there isn’t any cream cheese on any of their bagels!

    Don’t care who it is as long as the other the team practices another 10 hrs a day. Seems like we need to work on the D, the DD offense, free throws, end game situations, 3 pt shooting, and preparing for zone and junk defenses. Might also want to learn to break a press, 100% chance they’ll see it at the end of the month.

    Good joke no way jones is getting up early. I would say Miller, Davis, MKG, Polson, and Lamb



  34. catfanjon
    1:47 pm December 19, 2011 Permalink

    obviously MKG and Lamb. Most likely Miller. I cant see Davis getting up any earlier than he has to. My guess for the other two is Teague and maybe Beckham just because i know he is good friends with them.

  36. YouKnowImRight

    I know who it is. MKG lamb Beckham Wiltjer and miller. Beckham and Wiltjer are roomies and MKG is the one who started it with miller. Lamb wants to get a little more muscle on him

    what 38 said…i hope they eatin biscuits and gravy with sides of sausage and eggs and grits plus whole milk, juice, and coffee. They will burn it off.

    Gotta be Wiltjer, Polson, Long, Malone, Hood grubbing out with cheese grits. While those 5 are at the gym, Perry Stevenson sneaks in and steals all the pop-tarts while Shagari leaves a present in each of their toilets.

    MKG Is definitely one of them because he Tweeted about going to a morning workout. As If there was any question he would be one of them.

    doesn’t matter who it is right now, by the end of the week it will be all of them except TJ.

    Gilly the Kidd and whomever he demands to be there.
    They’re having hot browns with nails in them and burgoo with Kryptonite while they make fun of what a wuss Chuck Norris is in the new video game commercial.
    The way MKG is playing, he’s adding jet fuel to his orange juice.

    Terrence can’t get out of bed if he’s out until 2:30am.

    kids these days. if this team had more upperclassmen and 2 star players, and Cal was a real coach, these kids would all be eating oatmeal and fruit together every day, not fruity-o’s.

    I hope these guys don’t practice too much and break their pinky too.

    They should be eating eggs, oatmeal and some fruit..with milk. and Davis needs to get in on this if he’s not.

    This is great and I’m glad to see some guys doing this, but I see it in more of a negative light; why are ONLY those guys doing it? WTF is wrong with their teammates? Their work ethic worries me
