Coach John Calipari doesn’t want to look in the rear view mirror. What is done in the past is over. He doesn’t want to dwell on the success and championship of last season. Instead, Cal wants to focus on this year and bringing another NCAA Championship home to Lexington.
“This is a new team,” Coach Cal said. “We don’t even know how we’re going to play. Literally, we don’t know how we’re going to play yet. And that’s the disadvantage. You have all these teams that know how they’re going to play. They have the same team back. They’re just going to touch up. They added a couple of guys to see if they can get better, and then they build that base. Well, we have no base.”
Cal wants the fans to realize that this isn’t last years team. Six players from that team are now gone. They are now professionals in the NBA. His focus now has to turn to his new roster of talented superstars, to shape them into a well oiled championship winning machine.
