Our Radio show callers are about to be really happy, according to Jon Rothstein, because he thinks Calipari will soon bring back the dribble-drive motion offense next season.
Murray was right under our noses the entire time. He is textboox Cat material and now he will be joining the team in Lexington. We all looked at this season as a bad recruiting year for the Cats — Many of us blaming it on the platoon system.
However, Rothstein disagrees.
If it’s a bad recruiting year when you land the top floor general and big man in high school basketball along with a potential one-and-done guard who reclassifies, you know things are going well. That’s the current state of Kentucky basketball under Calipari.
Jon also said he believes Kentucky will run the dribble-drive offense more often and more effective than last year since Cal has three top point guards on his side.
Calipari has three point guards who have the ability to get into the teeth of the defense while getting downhill in a hurry. Part of Calipari’s reinvention of himself when he was at Memphis was this offense. It allows ball dominant players more freedom and it also creates more lob opportunities for big men to finish at the rim.
