John Calipari’s not-so-#humblebrag

Jun 26, 2012, 10:00 PM EDT

Nothing to see here, just John Calipari doing what John Calipari does best:



Now THAT is how you recruit an elite high school basketball player.

“Sorry, bro. I can’t talk now. Everyone that matters on my team is going to the NBA. I’ll have to call you back.”

You don’t think that will grab a kid’s attention? Calipari is not so subtly letting everyone one of his nearly 2 million twitter followers know that he’ll have to get back to recruiting when he is done dealing with the NBA Draft. Not only is he letting recruits know that he force-feeds his players to the NBA, he is showing that he is loyal enough to help them with everything they need to get to that level before he starts in on the task of rebuilding his team.

There’s a reason he is the best at what he does.

      Slippery? Is everything slimey to you? Because from where I sit the only thing slimey in this conversation is YOU. What exactly did Cal do wrong here? Boy the jealousy just rolls off people like you onto the floor like a big glob of green sweat. You might make it as a comic book villain. They’re always looking for new ideas for low lifes and scumbags. They could call you “Evil Envy Man”. You’d have to wear a mask because who could stand to look your way for long.

      packhawk04- I believe Mr.Whitehead and Mr.Penn were thinking of you.

    kingghidora…I’d have to agree with the Slippery Cal notion. Seeing he slipped away from UMass and Memphis before both programs were stripped of their final four appearances.
