Coach Calipari responded to one scout’s report on Tyler Ulis, Jamal Murray, and Skal Labissiere. The scout praised Ulis and Murray, but had harsh words for Skal. Coach Cal responded to the criticism as only he could.
“I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: Every one of my players is on their own timetable. Kids grow at their own pace & shouldn’t be judged by anyone else’s timetable. We’re here to serve these kids & help them reach their dreams. Ultimately they’ve got to do it, but if anyone wants to attack one of my kids personally, they won’t be welcomed here. Evaluating guys is one thing, personal attacks are another. These are young kids and they deserve better.” – Cal in a series of tweets.
