Lost in all of the excitement of three new Kentucky draft picks Wednesday night, John Calipari made a brief, concerning comment about the current team while congratulating Immanuel Quickley on being a first-round selection.
“I miss him already,” Calipari said into his phone with Quickley and his family on the other end. “We can’t make any shots!”
Quickley reminded his old coach that he was unable to make a shot early in his SEC Player of the Year sophomore campaign, urging Cal to give his new group some time. Cal wasn’t having it. He replied, “That’s all I want to hear… give them some time.”
Watch it in the clip below but don’t dwell on it too much because the rest of the video is so much better.
