Calipari Says Only Superman could Start in Front of Malik Monk

monk-superman

While speaking with the media at the SEC Meetings in Destin, one reporter from Malik Monk’s home state of Arkansas asked if Monk could be a freshman starter next fall.

“If someone beats him out,” the coach began, “I’d be very happy because that guy would have to have an ’S’ on the front of his jersey.”

From Darrell Bird of The Cats Pause, Calipari has loved everything he’s seen from Monk, but he will still have plenty of things to learn once he arrives in Lexington, which should happen next Monday.

“We’re going to try to get him to be a little more sturdy and physical,” Calipari said. “He can already run by people, shoot it and score, play both positions like the guards we’ve had.

“We were on him for a long time,” Calipari added. “I saw him early and said, ‘Oh my gosh, look at this guy!’”

    I know I will be ridiculed for pointing this out. But shouldn’t that be a picture of a different player… with an ‘S’ on his chest?

    Is Monk supposed to beat himself out for his spot? (Disregard the wording of that sentence…)

    Clearly only a doppelganger of Monk made by Ricard Pryor from synthetic kryptonite and tobacco additives would stand a chance.

      Sentient, I will improvise on your theme and suggest a doppelganger of Monk made out of Weed by Cheech and Chong, that Cal attempts to sneek by the NCAA. 🙂

      No. Its just hilarious to me that our citizens cannot spell simple words.

      Wow. Such unabashed pomposity. You know, Einstein was a notoriously bad speller. He also said not to memorize what you can look up in a book. However, if this is makes you feel better about yourself, by all means, carry on.

    I find it hard to believe that the recruiting services have like 5-10 people ahead of BOTH Monk and Bam Bam … Scout has Thon Maker ahead of both of them, are you serious?
