“Teams are going to say two years from now, ‘Why would we have passed on him?’” Calipari said during a conference call. “He’s the youngest player in this draft. He’s mentally mature. He’s got a great drive and will within his body. But physically his body isn’t there yet.”
“He has the mentality to be tough. It’s just physically he’s growing into his body,” Calipari said. “I look at guys like Jayson Tatum, who I thought was unbelievable in the playoffs. Recruiting him and knowing him and being around, watching him, I never knew he had that kind of toughness in him.
“I watched him. I watched him a ton of games, AAU. What I saw he never showed in college. But what I saw in the NBA he’s starting to mature. His body’s starting to mature. Now you have a skilled, long, tough player who’s a future All-Star. People knew he was good. They didn’t know he was that tough. Kevin falls into the same mode right now.”
