Happy Birthday to Brad Calipari!

We want to wish a very happy birthday to Earned Not Given Brad Calipari today as he turns 22 years old. Sure, we might give the coach’s son a lot of crap, but in all seriousness, he could be one of the most important players to play under John Calipari.

The reasoning is simple, Brad coming has pretty much guaranteed that Coach Cal would remain at Kentucky at least a few more years. When the announcement came out last week that he would redshirt this year, it yet against guaranteed another year of the Calipari era at Kentucky.

For Brad, he has been mainly used in mop-up duty in his first two years in Lexington scoring only 11 points and playing in only 27 games. Like I previously mentioned, his impact goes more of keeping his father here and the impact he can have on his teammates than it will on leading the Cats to a Final Four.

This morning, Coach Cal and his sisters, Erin and Megan, posted messages on Twitter wishing Brad a happy birthday:

Can we take a minute and recognize: One; how tan Cal is in that first picture, and two how young he looks in the second! Wow!

Now the question we have to ask about this picture is were his shorts longer then or now?

In all seriousness, happy birthday to Brad Calipari, hope you also get Mrs. Cal’s Brownies!
