In the Bahamas, Calipari shared his vision for the facility, which could also house a Kentucky Basketball museum, and discussed why it is so urgently needed. The fact that the roof in the practice gym leaked last week is just one part of it.
“This is my mindset, what I’m saying. I’m not saying just a gym — but it has to be bigger and not leak like the one we’ve got. But it’s gotta be bigger because that’s what they are now. People should come in and see this and say, ‘Whoa.’ But this is Kentucky Basketball. The gold standard in the country. This university, this state, basketball. So now, it’s time to say, this is what we want to do. I think again, yeah, I’ll push the needle. Let’s go.”
