    If that happens and Muhammad commits to the Kentucky Wildcats, I want to know what makes John Calipari tick.

    NBA connections definitely, look at D.rose, Tyreke Evans, John Wall, D.Cousins, Brandon Knight and D. Orton drafted by the magic even though he average like 6 ppg in his freshmen year. Kentucky's dribble drive offense prepares player from the draft...

    Yeah, I'm betting Muhammed picks Kentucky along with either Noel or Bennett too. Or maybe even all 3.

    I think Calipari has embraced the one and done mentality when most coaches are marketing their schools as great experiences for kids, they can get their degrees, they can learn from an established coach all of these things while Calipari simply says "I'll get you into the NBA". I know that's oversimplifying things but at the core I believe that is the message that is getting transmitted to these kids.

    I also think Calipari is doing something that's giving him the edge that is a violation of NCAA rules. I have no evidence of this outside of the fact that he has a history of NCAA transgressions and is able to recruit these top level players at a rate never before seen in modern day college basketball. I mean, has the guy really figured something out that no other coach in the history of the NCAA has figured out or is he doing something underhanded to help him land these kids?

    I said coach why we practice so much. He said God will bless us after all this hard work. How can I argue with that !

    Don't think there are many coaches other than Calipari that could have turned UMass into a national power. And unlike at Kentucky, he barely had any NBA talent on those teams.

    Yeah he ran some good teams back then, that 1996 team I think it was, was one of my favorite teams with Camby in the middle and the backcourt of Padilla and Travieso. I remember my buddy and I pretending to be Padilla and Travieso during pickup games.

    I actually think he's a good coach in the sense that he gets his players to play to their potential for the most part. But per my statement above I don't trust him.

    rumors Tony Parker may follow, Bazz clearly wants to improve his defense and Coach Howland promise him that they will run more next year...

    Shabazz Muhammad led the West team winning the Jordan Brand Classic All-American game 99-95 with 20 pts+ 4 reb. He was named the West's MVP, while Rodney Purvis was the East's MVP with 22 pts (and 10:13 FG).

    Muhammad may not be able to join the China pre-season tour due to ineligibility status regarding an ongoing investigation based on alleged improper benefits that Muhammad may have received during the recruitment process.

    Muhammad will be sidelined for 2-4 weeks due to a sprained shoulder. His eligibility status is still undergoing investigation.
