DJ Jeffries: “If (Memphis ever plays Kentucky) it’s going to be the same result as Duke”

Former Kentucky basketball commit DJ Jeffries can’t help but keep making critical comments of the UK program and the Big Blue Nation as a whole.

In an interview with Christian Fowler of 247 Sports, the four-star forward said if his Memphis Tigers ever have the opportunity to take on Kentucky next season, he can assure fans it’ll end up like the Duke game to open the college basketball season: a blowout loss for the Wildcats.

“I really don’t have no message for them, but just know if we ever play them it’s going to be the same result as Duke,” Jeffries said.

The statement comes after Jeffries was asked of his thoughts on any negative comments made from the Kentucky fanbase following his decommitment from the program. A decommitment that came after Kentucky head coach John Calipari made other players at Jeffries’ position a priority and put him on the back burner because he liked his options.

Here’s the whole excerpt, courtesy of Derek Terry of 247 Sports:

Kentucky commit (and Jeffries’ replacement) Kahlil Whitney couldn’t help but laugh off the comments.

Jeffries should really worry about his future team beating lower-tier SEC schools first before talking about dominating against the most storied program in college basketball history.

Or middle-of-the-pack Big 12 schools, for that matter…

For those keeping track at home, Memphis also barely beat Yale (109-102) and Canisius (71-63) this season. So sure, have fun with that next year, buddy.

John Calipari should have to start paying rent for living in Jeffries’ head for so long.

    LSU is nowhere near a lower tier SEC school this year. They’re top 5 or 6 in the conference.

    Now why would he go and say such things?

    Hey 4-star, you are not a one and done AND you should probably learn to master a second language, because your English is pretty poor and the likelihood of a career in the NBA is pretty minimal.

    “I really don’t have no message for them, but just know if we ever play them it’s going to be the same result as Duke,” Jeffries said.

    Double negatives ain’t no good, y’all know what UI sayin’?

    KRS acting like a snitch to get clicks. Not a story, just a creation of the media. Maybe you could sell this to Yahoo News Jack?

      Yes and same to you friend.

      I don’t think the fan base is concerned with this kid at all but the media will stoke this thing up and then blame fans for overreacting. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying KRS is responcible for fan’s behavior. This is just a Yahoo News way of doing business.

    I like the retweet from Kahlil. Sounds like he’s all on board. Looking forward to seeing him in blue.

    can we get a statement from his father? Perhaps some insight on what it means for recruiting?

    The only time this kid is even remotely relevant is when he’s talking about UK. It’s the only way he gets any attention. This will remain the case for the next 4-5 years.

    Just another tactic to get a uk game

    BTW- Memphis just lost to College of Charleston!!! They need to be setting their sites a little lower.

    Typical of most Memphis players, all mouth, losing tradition.

    That comment is just an immature retaliation for the derogatory remarks UK fans have made about him since he decommitted…..just a kid running his mouth. That said, he is taking considerable liberty with how good Wiseman is, because he certainly doesn’t bring any shivers to the spine.

    All he said was “same result as duke”; he didn’t clarify which team would be duke in that scenario…so he might be right ???
