Kentucky plays Georgia on the road Tuesday night but John Calipari’s press conference Monday started with a non-game related question.

He was asked if he was more proud of Devin Booker donating $2.5 million to charity or Karl-Anthony Towns for his remarkable game with 27 points and 27 rebounds?

“Proud of both of them. It is kind of amazing,” Calipari said by really giving the answer would expected and understands.

But that just got Calipari on a roll?

“How about last night? Kevin Knox gets 30 (for the New York Knicks) and is the sixth youngest player ever to get 30? How about Ashton (Hagans) getting (SEC) Freshman of the Week again and he had five turnovers?” Calipar said. “It’s kind of tells him, if you do your job, all the other stuff, the numbers don’t matter.

“Why are you worried about numbers if I have the ball more or if I am playing more and what I have got? The numbers don’t matter. They have never mattered here. So, that is for the clutter to understand. I am proud of all of them. Devin doing what he did, it is a neat deal.”
