“I liked what Coach Calipari and his assistants had to say,” Baker said. “It’s a great opportunity to go in and get better and improve my strengths and develop my weaknesses.”We know he's a shooter, but Baker insists he does not have to be behind the three-point line to put points on the board.
“They don’t have anybody like me,” Baker said. “I’m a different type of player. I’m not flashy but I can score in all different types of ways.”A different type of player, he isn't a typical Kentucky recruit. Without All-American accolades, Baker doesn't see Kentucky as a pitstop on the way to the NBA.
“I’m definitely a person who’s loyal," he said. "I didn’t leave Roosevelt (his high school) when things got tough. I’m a hard worker. I’m going to get my opportunity, and I’m going to flourish."
“I don’t do much anyways,” he said. “I’ll be staying in the dorm, staying in the gym and hanging out with the team.”[L.A. Times]
