Add another benefit to the endless positives surrounding John Calipari’s time as Team USA’s U19 coach. During their time at training camp in Colorado Springs, Kevin Knox, P.J. Washington and Hamidou Diallo are roommates.
“It’s all fun and games, and on the court we do our business,” Kevin Knox told Kyle Tucker after the first day of practices.
“Everyday it (our bond) gets stronger and stronger and this environment here, playing with each other, being on the same team, it’s just helping us for the season.”
As they become closer off the court, Hamidou Diallo believes they’re building chemistry on the court.
“We’re in the gym together all the time. We’re just trying to find our chemistry. You just gotta stick with it and run with it. We’re just in the gym competing and trying to get each other better everyday. That’s our ultimate goal for this summer.”
Diallo also discussed his eleventh hour NBA Draft decision, the advice he is giving the new guys and much more in the video below.
Knox talked about playing guard, his secretive decision and why he picked Derby day to make it. “I didn’t know it was Derby day till the day of.”
