Over on CoachCal.com, your second favorite UK website, Calipari looked back on the 2014-15 season and all of its awesomeness and how he hopes to never have to rotate 10 guys again.
“If you ask me if I’m ever going to platoon again, my answer is NO,” Cal wrote on his site. “Last season was an absolute outlier. It’s just not the way I like to coach. I would rather play seven or eight guys because I believe that gives us the best chance to win. I think we wrote the book on platooning this year, but I hope we stick it on the shelf and never have to use it again.”
He also reminded us that Kentucky is a players first program and it’s the best at developing players for the NBA. You listening, future recruits?
The timing of Cal’s message isn’t a coincidence, after he missed out on his spring targets. This seems to be his way of telling us, “Hey, BBN, don’t worry about our roster; I only like to play seven or eight guys anyway.”
