John Calipari is a master of this Twitter thing.
The UK head man is easily the best college hoops coach at using this social media platform, both to get his message out and do some next-level bragging. On Friday, Calipari posted a humble brag on his Twitter page in reference to November 15th of 2015.
I was in this restaurant the day we played Duke in 2015-16 and Malik Monk committed! It was like we won three times that day. pic.twitter.com/tHv98berFw— John Calipari (@UKCoachCalipari) May 12, 2017
If you recall, that was the day that Bam Adebayo committed to UK in the morning, and Malik Monk apparently told Calipari he was coming on that day as well (though his commitment didn’t become public until the next day. UK then went on to thrash Duke that night, making this arguably the best 3-for-3 performance of all time.
But apparently, there was more to Calipari’s tweet than we realized:
I just zoomed in on that Coach Cal pic and it just went to another level. pic.twitter.com/8M3CM0ofP9— Scott Charlton (@Scott_Charlton) May 12, 2017

Coach Cal playing grandmaster chess out here.
Did Calipari just use the ‘award-winning wings’ reference to brag about his loaded class of wings, which includes Kevin Knox and Jarred Vanderbilt?
