In “Things I didn’t expect to write today,” Dan Dakich, John Calipari, and Brad Calipari all did an interview together yesterday. Calipari came on Dakich’s show on 107.5 The Fan to talk about his ejection from the Arkansas game, and towards the end of the segment, Dakich introduced a “special media member,” who asked for some details about the incident. Spoiler: it was Calipari’s son Brad.
“I just wanted to ask him about the game the other night,” Brad asked. “I couldn’t tell if it was from something you said or if you belly-bumped [the referee].”
Brad, who transferred to Detroit Mercy and is averaging 41.6% from three, even gave his dad some grief about Kentucky’s shooting woes earlier this season.
“Yeah, I do,” Brad said when Dakich asked him if he thought the Cats were missing a shooter. “They did [have one], but he wasn’t used well.”
LOL. Brad also opened up about his experience at Kentucky, specifically how he dealt with criticism from fans. His dad was quick to remind him that when the Cats struggled early this year, a lot of fans wanted Brad back in Lexington.
“When you were playing at Detroit, all of them were hitting me saying, ‘You should have kept him. We can’t make a three and he’s up there making them all.’ So there may have been a few people that were down on him, but it’s very, very few. Believe me, our fans are great.”
Listen to it all below. Coach Cal comes on at the 2:01:00 mark and Brad around the 2:15:00 mark.
