KSR’s videographer Bradley McKee is getting pretty good at this whole “Zoom” thing. He’s already caught up with Marcus Lee, Derek Willis, Kyle Wiltjer and Chris Lofton (catch up on those videos on KSR’s YouTube channel here). Next up for B-Roll? Tony Delk.
The former Cat talks with KSR about a variety of topics, including his life before, during and after his time in the Kentucky uniform. Currently, he’s still working with his own private label of wine, Lorenz00’s Reserve, working alongside Kentucky Eagle and the Wildside Winery in Versailles. The company produces rieslings, chardonnays and cabernet sauvignon wines. The bottles’ logo features Delk’s former jersey number:

Delk has spent a lot of time with Coach John Calipari over the years, including four years as his assistant coach. Throughout that time, Delk says he learned a lot from the head coach – including how to find time for his family – and he has an immense respect for him.
“Over the years of talking with him, he welcomed us with open arms. That’s the hardest thing to do when a new coach comes in with former players that played for another coach years before he was there,” Delk said. [Calipari] has done a great job of keeping all of the decades together, and that’s hard to do… He’s really united all of us and kept us all engaged.”
Delk also discusses the support system he had in his parents, how Rick Pitino convinced him to join the University of Kentucky Wildcats, why he came back for his senior season and his decade in the NBA.
