University of Kentucky Basketball, Football, and Recruiting news brought to you in the most ridiculous manner possible.

Michael Rapaport: “I’d check to see if I still have my wallet on me after shaking hands with John Calipari.”

Not really, but somewhat “famous” actor Michael Rapaport decided to throw a jab at Coach Calipari following his appearance on set during the NBA Draft on Thursday night, and it’s about as funny as you’d expect.

Known as a die-hard Knicks fan (that explains a lot), Rapaport said he’d have to check if he still had his wallet on him if he ever shook hands with Cal.

Ha.

Here’s the tweet he sent out the night of the NBA Draft:

To make matters worse, he finishes the tweet by telling kids to “Go to St. Johns” rather than the University of Kentucky.

Let’s take a look at the current NBA players that played at St. Johns:

  • Metta World Peace
  • Maurice Harkless

And… That’s all.

Just taking a quick scroll through his IMDB, Rapaport’s hit roles as “Bartender” in Sully and “Animation Voice” in Middle School: The Worst Years of My Life show how much weight his comments carry in the world of sports. I guess his role in a few Celebrity Challenges during NBA All-Star Weekend mean… something.

I guess it’s a good thing he’ll never have to worry about shaking hands with Calipari.

    i.e., kids should forfeit their goals and aspirations just to spite a grown man. All because one person lied about their SAT score and another person hired a sports agent.

      He’s “that guy from the thing” personified. Not famous enough to know his name but recognizable from his occasional guest roles on things people like

    Rapaport is pretty funny when he’s on Pardon My Take. His whole thing is saying over the top things though. He’s not serious very often. He crushes his own Knicks more than anything.

      This.

      Dude is just joking around. And who has the energy to hold all of these “he talked bad about us once” grudges. I mean as long as their talking about us and not because we have strippers in the dorms enjoy it. Nothing is worse than being irrelevant.

      I’m going to take a wild ass guess here and conjecture that Katina Powell has had more than a few death threats directed at her from the likes of you.

    He’s a loser! Who cares what he says or thinks. He isn’t even really that funny…..

    There are ‘A” list actors…..B, C, D………and members of the F troop.

    He is neither.

    Don’t know who he is but doubt he could even pack around the wallets of many of the UK players in the NBA (nor Cal’s).

    Stop being so sensitive, he was kidding.

    How he ever made a dime from being in the entertainment industry is beyond me.

    I doubt Cal would shake hands with this clown without a glove….I know I wouldn’t.
