Is this picture of Dick Vitale, John Calipari, and Rick Pitino a troll move?

Dick Vitale and his wife are celebrating their 47th wedding anniversary today, which means Dickie V. is flooding Instagram with pictures to commemorate the occasion. Among snaps of celebrities, athletes, and Broken Egg Cafe customers includes this picture of the two with John Calipari, posed directly under a mural of Rick Pitino in the Kentucky Basketball facilities:

Because it’s a slow night and there are only so many times I can type, “PJ Washington, Jarred Vanderbilt, and Wenyen Gabriel have until May 30th to decide whether to stay in the draft or return to school,” I ask you, the KSR readers: Is this picture a troll move or not? Did Dickie V. intentionally ask to take the pic under the mural of his beloved Rick to honor their friendship or did Calipari do it to thumb his nose at his former foe? Or, is it a Tuesday night and there’s nothing better to talk about?

I’m going with the latter, but let me know what you think in the comments.

    Dickie V has pictures like this of Rick on all his walls at home. He probably didn’t think anything about it

    Looks like trolling to me! By both Cal & DV, perhaps. BBN loves this guy:>)

    My guess is vitale had no idea, but cal did. The shot clearly shows the entire pitino pic, while cutting them off at the knees

    I like to think Cal and Dicky V are trying to point out that they still are good lookin Italians and have a great life… then the fact that’s the closest thing pitino gets to a program like Kentucky again.
