John Calipari can sense the narrative changing.
The season began with incessant talk of Kentucky’s platoon system and whether it would work, but the way the Wildcats are playing shifted the talk to defense.
Calipari, however, wants to press rewind. He wants to go back to the platoon talk, though with, as he would surely put it, a tweak.
“The story, everybody wants to talk about defense, they all want to talk about the energy, the blocked shots and the length, and the story is you have 10 guys sharing minutes,” Calipari said. “That’s the whole story in a nutshell.”
No offense, Coach Cal, but this team’s story can’t fit in a nutshell, not with the way the Cats have been smothering opponents.
