Megan Calipari Defends Dad, Takes Shot At Colin Cowherd

Ryan Phillips

Megan Calipari is Kentucky head coach John Calipari’s daughter, and she’s standing up for her pops. On Monday morning she took a shot at Colin Cowherd, who last week said Calipari’s Kentucky players underwhelm in the NBA. After Anthony Davis won the MVP of the 2017 NBA All-Star Game and DeMarcus Cousins was traded to the New Orleans Pelicans, the young Ms. Calipari tweeted the following:

Here’s what Cowherd said about Calipari’s Kentucky guys on Friday:

" John Calipari’s Kentucky players have underwhelmed in the NBA — Herd w/Colin Cowherd (@TheHerd) February 17, 2017 "

I don’t fully agree with Cowherd here because Davis and Karl-Anthony Towns are for real and John Wall is a legit, perennial All-Star. That said, he does have a point that the majority of those Kentucky guys haven’t lived up to the enormous hype they entered the league with.
