Kentucky’s Jones, Calipari share bond after rant
There’s more to Terrence Jones than ”The Rant.”
Most fans assumed the talented forward was off to the NBA after
Kentucky coach John Calipari’s withering, 30-second tirade filled
with cringe-inducing expletives was caught by cameras in a game
Calipari apologized publicly, Jones stayed and the bond between
the two is so tight now the sophomore calls his coach a ”father
The episode toughened Jones, who has dealt with more criticism
this year from fans for periods of poor play and a finger injury
that cost him two games.
Jones says he could have left last year and was comfortable with
his draft status, but was more interested in winning a title.
He’s got that chance now. Kentucky (37-2) faces Kansas (32-6) on
Monday in the national championship in New Orleans.
