One point guard and one guy that blocked every shot? I got the opportunity to coach them. They both deferred to their team. Anthony Davis took the fifth most shots on my team. He was the No. 1 pick. Mom and dad never said one word. And then Derrick would rather someone else score and get the glory and not him. And he hadn’t changed.

— John Calipari, the Kentucky coach interviewed by CSNChicago.com about coaching two No. 1 picks, Derrick Rose and Anthony Davis. 

Why does every time he speaks, even when it is sincere, sound like a recruiting pitch?

    Make no mistake those words were aimed at Jabarri Parker. Clocks still ticking in Lexington…..just a matter of time.
