Monday’s Top 10: Calipari wedding swagger edition

Howdy, folks, and welcome to a new week. It was a huge weekend for the Calipari family, which convened on Newport, Rhode Island to celebrate Megan’s marriage. More pictures and videos should trickle out throughout the day, but it might be hard to top this one from Saturday. With the Calipari swagger in mind, let’s tackle today’s top 10.

1. ICYMI, here’s where every Cat ended up following the NBA Draft

  • De’Aaron Fox: Sacramento Kings (5th pick)
  • Malik Monk: Charlotte Hornets (11th pick)
  • Bam Adebayo: Miami Heat (14th pick)
  • Isaiah Briscoe: Philadelphia 76ers Summer League
  • Isaac Humphries: Washington Wizards Summer League
  • Derek Willis: Detroit Pistons Summer League
  • Dominique Hawkins: Sacramento Kings Summer League

The Summer Leagues rev up this Saturday, starting with the Orlando League (July 1-6), followed by Utah (July 3-6), and Las Vegas (July 7-17).

2. Bam Adebayo seems to be settling into South Beach just fine

Is there an opening at Miami Sports Radio?

3. Calipari on SEC Coaches Teleconference

John Calipari will take a break from post-wedding festivities this morning to hop on the SEC Coaches Summer Teleconference. I’ll be listening in to bring you all of Cal’s comments as he sums up the NBA Draft, Team USA, and whatever else his heart desires.

4. Team USA prepares to leave for Egypt

Training Camp for Calipari’s U19 National Team wrapped up yesterday in Colorado Springs, and NBA scouts and media were allowed in to watch practice. I think you’ll like this tweet from Fran Fraschilla:

Been saying it for a while now, but PJ Washington will be a fan favorite this fall. He, Hamidou Diallo, and the rest of Team USA leave for Egypt today to prepare for the FIBA World Cup, which begins on Saturday in Cairo.

5. Immanuel Quickley closing in on a decision

If you missed the post directly below this one, Immanuel Quickley, one of Calipari’s primary 2018 targets, says he’s nearing a decision. The five-star point guard is down to Kentucky, Kansas, Maryland, and Miami and says he wants to announce his decision before his senior season. Kentucky’s the overwhelming favorite.

6. Erin Calipari keeps trolling her brother and I love it

The wittiest Calipari couldn’t help but give her brother a little grief this weekend, mimicking his trademark Instagram poses with one of her own:

Trying to take instagram photos like @brad.calipari. I think I nailed it

Put on a hoodie Erin, and you nailed it.

7. Stephen Johnson spent the weekend at the Manning Passing Academy

Great weekend at the Manning Passing Academy

A post shared by Stephen Johnson (@stephen_h_j) on

Everyone’s favorite quarterback spent the weekend in Thibodaux, Louisiana helping out at the Manning Passing Academy. Johnson has proven to be a wonderful role model in his year at Kentucky, and I’m sure he shared his message with his campers.

8. Jordan Spieth is good at golf

The angle of the celebration at the 1:09 mark just gave Aaron Flener all sorts of #CaddyGoals.

9. Have you subscribed to the new KSR radio show podcast feed?

iHeart is making our lives a little difficult by killing our old podcast feed for the radio show, so do yourself a favor and subscribe to the new feed now. That way you don’t miss a moment of the awesome guest host schedule we’ve got lined up, which starts with…

10. Dan Wolken kicks off five weeks of guest hosts

Matt Jones is starting his five-week European vacation in Budapest, which means our five weeks of guest hosts has begun. USA Today’s Dan Wolken will kick things off with today’s show, which is sure to include some quality college basketball talk and tidbits about John Calipari, whom Wolken covered during his Memphis days. Here’s the rest of this week’s guest host schedule:

June 26: Dan Woken of USA Today
June 27: Pardon My Take
June 28: Evan Daniels

    Happy birthday TT. So that picture of Bam looks like from the buildings in the background was taken at the Mandarin Oriental on Brickell Key, which is like 2-3 miles from the arena. I am so happy to have Bam down here I think the Heat has a great development program for young players he is set up to thrive here.
