WATCH: Which Kentucky player has the most Attitude Points?

This Kentucky team has already demonstrated a tendency to talk trash to their opponents. Today, John Calipari said he doesn’t want his players to give the other team any additional motivation, so he’s giving “attitude points” to the players who do the most jawing in practice.

“I have a team that talks — I want a team to talk. Like the biggest issue we have, they don’t talk enough. The problem is when they talk at the other team, that’s a problem. That’s an attitude.

“So we have a couple guys that start competing, and then they start jawing at each other. They start sassing, as you would say. So now we have attitude points. So if they’re competing and the score is 12-9 and Keldon scores and then starts to chest bump, boop, attitude point, the other team. Now it’s 13-10, and we keep playing. So we have attitude points this year.

“My job is every year to try — what is this team, what do they need from me. So to get them — I want them to talk to each other. I just don’t want them to talk to the opponent. Leave them alone. Very good question. I gave up trade secrets, though (laughter).”

Off the bat, I bet you could guess who the biggest offenders are; regardless, I went around and asked.

    This might not be related to this but I’m sitting in the airport in Atlanta, and Vernon Carey is here. Talked to him and he’s a really cool guy!! Only problem is we are on a 4 hour delay to come to Lexington and he doesn’t look too enthusiastic about the wait along with me! Told him it’s worth the wait for big blue madness!! Really great guy!!! I think he could palm too basketballs if he wanted too lol

    I’m thinking when we play that first game early there’s going to be some additude points handed out by the refs against both teams. Just hope it’s just early in the game and not in the closing minutes. Unless we up a bunch then it won’t matter
