The facial expression above is exactly what my face looked like when I heard a statement on John Calipari’s Call-In Show that’s best described as “unbelievable.”
Coach Cal said he didn’t know Malik Monk scored 47 points until he got on the plane after the game. No way. I’m not buying it. Not even for a second.
Let’s just say I did believe it for a second. That it isn’t Cal just playing the humble card. It’s very plausible he didn’t know exactly how many points Monk had while the game was going on, but once the game ended, it was the most unavoidable fact in Las Vegas. When reporters asked questions, “47 points” had to be inserted in at least one of them. When he sat down to speak to the reporters, there was probably a box score sitting directly in front of him. Not one person uttered, “Can you believe he got 47?” Come on.
I’m not buying it. I hope I’m not alone.
