Since Roy Williams brought out the Michael Jordan 1992 Championship ring to Julius Randale scouting visit, Calipari should have just brought Drake.
Drake has been making headlines with the Wildcats since 2009 when coached one of the teams at Big Blue Madness, since then Drake and UK have become intertwined. He sat behind the bench at the NCAA tournament in 2010 as well as received a championship ring that the Wildcats have won this past April.
I honestly think Drake always wanted that father figure and he finally found that in Calipari, which is a good thing, Calipari is a good guy. In a interview with GQ Drake has been quoted not having the best relationship with his dad and being disappointed from him never showing up.
“Me and my dad are friends. We’re cool. I’ll never be disappointed again, because I don’t expect anything anymore from him. I just let him exist, and that’s how we get along. We laugh. We have drinks together. But I spent too many nights looking by the window, seeing if the car was going to pull up. And the car never came.”
Its good that Drake is getting that motivation and inspiration to finish HS and have that “desire for diplomas on the wall”.
