Calipari is talking about the 'Fantasy Camp' they are establishing for this September at the moment. He'll take general questions here shortly we're told.
Calipari said he's been on the phones trying to determine where UK's 6 NBA Draft guys will be selected. Said it will be Davis at No. 1, MKG will be second Cat taken, then Jones. He's not sure where the other 3 will be selected.
Cal says he won't be the '24/7' coach of Dominican team he was last summer. Rod Strickland will be handling a lot of day-to-day stuff.
Cal said he thinks 4 of the 6 Cats will be 1st round picks
On new rule to allow two 1-hour workouts a week this summer: 'It's better than none.' More worried about their work ethic
Cal said he will slow down "when it's time to retire"… only knows one speed.
Calipari says he may be interested in getting involved with USA Basketball at some point but that there are 'a lot of qualified coaches'
Calipari acknowledges its a bonus to have PG (Harrow) who has been in system for a year for 1st time in 6 years. Said different than Teague
Cal: 'If Anthony is in great condition I really like his chances (of making USA Olympic team).'
Cal, on IU series: 'I wanted to do what Knight did. He thought the series should be neutral.'
Cal: 'I'm not scheduling for anyone else. Schedule for America? No. I'm scheduling for us.'
Cal: 'Kentucky is one of only programs that can go to football stadium & fill it in regular season. Why? Because we can.'
Calipari just went all WIzard of Oz (ironically playing at Kentucky Theater tomorrow) with "Because, because, because, because, because"
Calipari on Joker Phillips' reaction to thought of MBB, WBB. FB triple header: 'Please don't make it Notre Dame'
Cal, on IU's idea that you have to play games on campus for the students: 'Are they that poor? It's only 2 hours away.'
Cal says just like journalism, things in sports are changing. It ain't 5 years ago. Everyone has to change and be ahead of the curve.
Calipari says all of the incoming players for 2012-13 will either be in Lexington for the 8-week session (starts next week) or 6-week one
Via Kyle Tucker, Cal on Karl Towns making the DR team:
"Will he make the team? I don’t know. He’s 16 years old. He’s getting muscled."

This isn't a great thing.
Four of the 6 is better than 2. If all else fails the two that aren't should be HIGH 2nd round picks.
Keep Calm & Stoops On..
agreed, andwe could see some of them on the same teams. Lamb and Miller will be steals WHEN they are picked. (crosses fingers the my celtic's pick Lamb)
Unfortunately the Cavs are probably the team that would most likely select both Lamb and Miller.

Yeah, this is a very deep draft. No shame in being a high second this year. Notice the lack of international players in the draft this year compared to last? They usually come out when the draft is weak so a team can take them and shelve them in Europe for a few years. Not this year. Every first round pick should be at least a rotation player for whoever drafts them.
