I've read the transcript from Calipari's press conference and checked over Marquis Teague's stats for the past few games, which is normal because I am a Kentucky basketball fan. Or not normal for normal people, but normal for Kentucky basketball fans. Yes, that's probably more accurate.
So should we be concerned that Calipari apparently can't get his team to play the way he wants them to? Yes, we lost nine games last year before we figured out how to play, but this isn't last year's team; these guys are supposed to be the GREATEST ASSEMBLY OF BASKETBALL TALENT IN EVER. It's not like my expectations are ridiculously high and out of proportion with this team's level of experience and maturity or anything.
In all seriousness, though, I haven't watched one game this team has played yet and thought: hey, that was a complete basketball game with no significant breakdowns. I'm concerned about Marquis Teague's understanding of what he's supposed to do. I worry about why we got outrebounded by a much smaller team last night. Is all this legit or am I a neurotic Kentucky fan?
