The next BBN bodily fixation: Brad Cal(f)ipari



Anthony Davis’ unibrow. Nerlens’ flat top. John Robic’s hair. Tod Lanter’s biceps.

The BBN has a habit of picking out a striking body part: Most players have two eyebrows. Few rocked the flat top in Nerlens’ day. Robic’s hair’s feathery charm is second only to White Goodman. Tod Lanter looked like he spent a month in Siberia doing nothing but eating wild river salmon and using a shake weight.

This season, we have Brad Calipari’s mountainous calves.

Now take a closer look:


Just look at those bad boys. They’re nice, no doubt. Large, yet toned. Stout, and getting steady buckets from the three-point line. 

The dude’s gastrocnemius and soleus are even more impressive when you consider where he came from:

Not a great look from circa 2009, but he’s since made the transition from Canklepari to Calfipari (calf raises? Diet change?) one that I can confidently say has been for the better.



I think they’ve graduated from the term “calves.” They’re fully formed, mature cows. And that doesn’t just apply to Cal the younger–his dad has some cows as well, reminding me of that random guy at the gym who told me “calves are, like, 90 percent genetic, bro.” I’m inclined to believe him after seeing this photo:


Do your calf raises, BBN

    Sigh… Slow news day, huh? Invent a non-story story. Compare him to baseball players or football players and his calves are normal. He’s just not thin, wiry or approaching 7 feet in height.

    I have an idea..Take pictures of all KSR staffers together & then ask readers to discuss which bodies parts we can make fun of. Make sure you are in that picture.

    How about laying off Brad? I can assure you he’s taking plenty of shots and jokes because of his dad. Give the kid a break. This snarky crap needs to end.

    “Tod Lanter looked like he spent a month in Siberia with nothing doing nothing but eating wild river salmon and using a shake weight.” This article is dumb. Someone write something with objective analysis or at least legitimate humor. Or you can hire me, I promise I can do better.

    “Cal(f)ipari?!?!” I can not believe that you took the time to write an article about this.
