In some crummy news, John Wall’s rehab from a knee injury isn’t going as planned. The former #1 overall draft pick has been sitting on the bench for the Wizards this season, watching as his team sinks further into irrelevance. Wall may have to sit out the entire season, depending on the seriousness of the injury, but he is trying to be positive:

I’m not thinking like that,” Wall said, when asked if it would be better for him to sit out the entire season. “Hopefully the time I’ve taken off and the shots I got and the treatment I’ve been getting is helping me get healthy so I can play basketball this season. You don’t want to miss a whole season. If it comes to it, you have to, but I’m trying not to think that far ahead

Get well soon, John.

John Calipari has the Christmas Spirit. He and the rest of the team donated their time and effort to help the Samaritan’s Feet organization by personally donating shoes to are elementary school children. The players and the coaches also washed the feet of the children.

Cal also donated a number of coats for the Salvation Army. During such tragic and sad times it’s nice to see someone trying to bring more good into the world.

We still have over 48 hours before the Wildcats take the floor against the Thundering Heard of Marshall. I can’t remember a time when December was so boring as far as basketball was concerned. Luckily North Carolina will be back on the schedule next season and hopefully Cal beefs up the schedule a bit.

But, the fact that Kentucky’s schedule was front loaded cannot be ignored. Space it out Cal, space it out.
