Sport: Calipari might have thrown shade at Duke

A look at Prince Philip, the queen's most loyal subject

  A look at Prince Philip, the queen's most loyal subject Prince Philip, Queen Elizabeth II's most stalwart companion for nearly 70 years, has announced his retirement. ​Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh, has decided to step down from royal duties from August 2017. He will only attend previously scheduled events and won't be accepting any new invitations. The longest-serving consort of a reigning British monarch, at the age of 95, is also the oldest male member the British royal family has ever had.

​John Calipari is a master of taking young talent and turning them into NBA-ready players during their one year spent in college. 

However, if this insane conspiracy theory is true, he just may be a master at throwing the most subtle shade ever as well. 

Calipari was in his feelings earlier, and decided to send out this Tweet reminiscing about one of the best days in his coaching career. 

​​On that fateful day, the Wildcats got Bam Adebayo to commit, and apparently, they also got Malik Monk to commit that day as well, although it didn't go public until later. 

UCLA's Alford: Lonzo Ball 'as good to coach as anybody I've had'

  UCLA's Alford: Lonzo Ball 'as good to coach as anybody I've had' Lonzo Ball's former coach at UCLA has nothing but positive reviews for the point guard. "I mean, this was a guy that was one-and-done from the get-go, yet he went to class every day, did what he was supposed to do academically, did the community-service work, was on time for everything, very respectful," Steve Alford told Doug Haller of The Arizona Republic. "Not one time was there an altercation or disrespect to me, an assistant coach, or a teammate. He was as good to coach as anybody I’ve had.

Then, that night, the Wildcats went and dominated the Duke Blue Devils, completing the trifecta of wins for Calipari and his program. 

That would explain the three wins mentioned in Calipari's Tweet, but one dedicated fan took it far, far further than that. 

​​You might be thinking to yourself, what could this possibly mean? What is it? The valet parking? WHAT IS GOING ON?

Look closer folks. 

​​Did... did John Calipari seriously just take a picture of a random spot and Tweet it out JUST so he could throw the most ridiculously subtle shot at his haters for getting incredible wing players like Kevin Knox and Jarred Vanderbilt?
