Aaron Harrison and James Young talk clutter

After the Tennessee game, John Calipari said that a few of his players needed to “eliminate the clutter” from their lives and focus on basketball.  Cal didn’t mention anyone in particular, but brought up the topic while discussing the team’s big men.  Today, both James Young and Aaron Harrison were asked about “clutter.” Here are their responses:

James Young on clutter and whether Cal talks about it with the team: “Yeah. Before practice he talks about it every day and it’s just something we gotta learn to block out and just focus on basketball.”

On what Cal means:  “Just listening to everybody and just not focusing on what we should be doing. It’s just something we gotta work on blocking out.”

According to Aaron Smith, Aaron Harrison said that the clutter comes both from players’ inner circles and “guys reading articles.”

Time for some premature spring cleaning.

    There is nothing good coming out of the comment section: people write there for different reasons, not much to be learned from this opinion.

    Has WCS apologized to the team for not showing up for the UT game?

    As long as 5’4″ blondes are part of the student population (forever) there will always be clutter.

    When Cal talks in the preseason about UK having 7 1st round draft picks this year, I am sure that does not help with the clutter talk the players hear.

    I remember Joe B. Hall talked a lot in ’78 about how much pressure the team was under to win the title. That was before networks like espn and cable in general so you only had local tv, radio and print media. It really is mind boggling to think of all the different methods players get negative feedback from today. They can’t avoid it even if they try.
