Calipari Loves Jones, Loves His Team (Despite His Cursing)

John Calipari caught a lot of flak last week when he was captured by ESPN cameras calling freshman Terrence Jones a “selfish mother…” shut yo mouth!

Now Kentucky’s coach is saying all the right things about Jones and his young team.

“(Jones) is a great kid.  At times I look at him and say, ‘I love you, you know.’ and he says, ‘I know and love you, too.’”

(We’ll pause here for non-Cat fans to mock that comment.  Humming.  Humming.  And done.)

“He is young and not playing with the kind of desire and fight he needs to the whole game.  When he does play that way, people look and say, ‘Wow.’  My job is to get him playing with that mentality all the time.”

As for his team, Calipari said on today’s SEC teleconference: “This team’s upside is tremendous.  Individual players are only playing at 50-60 percent of what they are capable of doing.  I like my team.  I believe in them to the point that I believe in some players more than they believe in themselves.  At some point they have got to work and be special and not be afraid of that.”

“I really like my team.  I think there is no team in America that has more upside than my team based on individual players not playing at the level they will in a month or so.”
