John Calipari says his Kentucky players should spend more of their own time in the gym rather than watching reruns of 'Sponge Bob Square Pants.'
LEXINGTON, Ky. - With final exams over for Kentucky's players, John Calipari says that he'll practice as much as three times a day over the next couple of weeks. But Coach Cal does not see any reason why that would keep his players from getting even more time in the gym on their own.
"Our skillset is not where it needs to be and there is only one way to improve it, get on the court and practice," Calipari said on Friday.
"Be a gym rat. You have nothing else going on. You have nothing else going on, why wouldn’t you be in the gym five times a day. We go three, you go two more. Why wouldn’t you? ‘I have video games to watch, I like to watch a little TV and some reruns of (Sponge Bob) Squarepants. I’ve got some stuff I need to watch so I can’t be in there.’ I just don’t understand what would keep you from being in there and just saying, this is what I do, I love this.”
