Derrick Rose was at Kentucky’s shootaround


While you were out for lunch, Kentucky basketball held its game day shootaround in the United Center in Chicago, in preparation for tonight’s big game.

And because he is John Calipari, he had an NBA star from the Chicago Bulls stop by to say hello to the team.

Derrick Rose, the first of many great Calipari point guards over the last decade, made an appearance at the Wildcats’ shootaround. Rose is Charles Matthews’ favorite player, so at least one person on the team was ecstatic. I’m sure Rose had some encouraging words for Alex Poythress on his return, too.


And because he is John Robic, he is wearing shorts in Chicago in November.

    I’m sorry, but even if Cal has managed to keep a good relationship with the guy all these years, he has no place at UK. What he did put the entire Memphis program in a tailspin, and hurt his teammates…and he got NOTHING, and got to move on as the #1 pick and make his millions (largely while sitting in street clothes “injured”). He’s a bad role model, and a dude that lives with a dark cloud over his head (karma maybe?) ; he needs to keep that bad juju the hell away from our team.

    Kevin, please stop. You are embarrassing yourself. Only crusty old jerks have the mentality you expressed in the post above. You may go now old man.

    Maybe he can help Alex to be the best he can be tonight and the rest of the season.
