Kentucky star point guard Tyler Ulis will begin his NBA career at the start of next season, and nobody seems more excited than Wildcats coach John Calipari. Ulis announced today that he would be hiring an agent and staying in the upcoming NBA Draft class, and Calipari took to Twitter to express just how proud he was of Ulis.
In fact, Calipari went so far as to say that Ulis was the best point guard he has ever coached.
There is clearly a great relationship that exists between Ulis and Calipari, because he doesn’t get emotional about just anybody. Moreover, to say that Ulis is the “best floor general” that he’s coached is high praise, especially considering how Calipari coached a former NBA MVP in Derrick Rose while at Memphis, not to mention the highly talented Andrew Harrison at Kentucky.
But Ulis is definitely the best point man that John Calipari has coached since Rose and wherever he ends up in the NBA, he’ll have the opportunity to be an immediate impact player.
