It’s no secret that Shai Alexander works hard and has the grit that most players could only dream of, but after seeing this tweet from John Calipari, you really start to finally wrap your head around how hard this kid has worked to get to where he is now.
Five minutes after making his announcement to enter the NBA draft, Shai was right back in his office and once again honing his craft. No party, no celebration, just a ball and a basket. If you have ever wondered how Shai went from an unknown four star recruit to a potential lottery draft pick, you can now see why. I know Coach Cal isn’t alone when he says he’s gonna miss this one. Me too Cal, me too.
