Photo of the Day: Jumping John Calipari

As I was scrolling through Instagram today, I came across some more #10YearChallenges, a video of Dick Vitale rambling, an advertisement for National Popcorn Day, and — whoa my gosh, look at John Calipari jumping. The talented Chet White captured this brilliant photo of John Calipari going vertical in last night’s game in Athens and I can’t stop looking at it. Thoughts:

1) What — or rather, who — made him jump like that?

2) Nice shoes

3) Who has a higher vertical: Cal or Reid Travis?

You can check out the rest of Chet’s photos from the game last night here, including this great one of Immanuel Quickley and strength coach Rob Harris:

    The guy acts like a crazy person on the sidelines. I wonder if he yelled like that at home when his kids were growing up..lol.

    And the trolls say all he cares about is player draft stock. Yeah okay, he’s losing his mind over there on the sideline just bc he’s worried about draft stock.

      He is though. He markets his guys. Makes them take shots to help their draft stock. Players first remember?

      Got to love a coach who is players first.

      Silly BoB. Sure, he cares about players first. But he also cares about the team winning. And as my comment said, you trolls act like he only cares about one.

    Looks like more of “picking your legs up quickly” than an actual jump!

      And, yes, I think Cal can “pick his legs up quicker than Travis”

      I coach girls’ juniors volleyball, and it reminds me of the way some of them start out trying to jump when they are just learning the game. 🙂

    KSR should do a “Caption This” contest for this one! My submission: “Reid, you have to be able to jump over a phone book to score in the SEC!”

    And to answer Tyler’s first question – my guess would be that it was probably PJ who set him off like this. 😉

    Cal looks like a dwarf, or that someone just set fire to his ass. What a great picture.
    I disagree he’s jumping. He couldn’t jump that high attached to a bungee. Lol. It’s the wind up for a big stomp.

      Would make a great caption contest.
