See the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly of Camp Cal

Screen Shot 2014-01-07 at 9.21.14 AM

Going through basketball withdrawal? just posted four minutes of highlights from “Camp Cal,” showing “The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly” of UK’s practices over the past two weeks. Here’s a quick breakdown:

The Good: Dunks, lobs, blocks, and crisp passing (that last series was just silly)
The Bad: Orlando Antigua on the foam roller, dunk fails, Derek Willis staring at the wall
The Ugly: A raucous team dinner in which a member of the staff sits on a saddle, Dominique Hawkins’ ridiculous dunk and getting to put the helmet on Marcus Lee

Cal posted this message about the video a few minutes ago:

‪#‎BBN‬, I promised you some video highlights from Camp Cal, so here they are: The good, the bad and the ugly. We grew a lot over the last couple of weeks. Camp Cal wasn’t just about basketball; it was about stretching them out mentally. The guys were always together — at breakfast, at dinner, at practices, at meetings and in film sessions. We showed the guys that video at my house last night so they could see the last two weeks. They loved it.

My favorite:


Is it tomorrow night yet??

    Anyone know why Rex Chapman was going on a twitter tirade against Coach Cal only having two-a-days instead of three-a-days? I can never tell with him if he is being genuine or not. He has taken a more contrarian view than usual about all things UK related recently.

      Rex Chapman has no business calling Coach Cal out on twitter. Cal has been so good with and to former players. Quite sure he would pick up the phone if RC called for a private chat. smh

    Can’t tell if Aaron Harrison was laughing at Cal or looking at him crazy

      Cal needs looked at crazy sometimes. He keeps getting teched for stepping out onto the court like that. Obviously that’s not a huge game changer, but it’s definitely not helping when he’s giving refs the excuses they need to send teams like UNC to the line all night and shelter them from having to play an actual basketball game against us.

    So is this a sign of really good offense, or really bad defense. Offense looked good in practice, hope it converts. I really hope they worked on defense. A lot!!

    I hope Brian Long appreciates being one of the first to slap Marcus Lee’s helmet.

    Fantastic video! These guys look like they’re having some fun and getting after it. Poythress looked to be in Beast Mode certainly.

    The Dunk Helmet is the coolest idea, ever.

    Maybe Cal could come up with a Brick Necklace that our worst FT shooter has to wear around campus…Hmmmmmm…….
