Michael Rapaport: "I'd check to see if I still have my wallet on me after shaking hands with John Calipari."

Not really, but somewhat “famous” actor Michael Rapaport decided to throw a jab at Coach Calipari following his appearance on set during the NBA Draft on Thursday night, and it’s about as funny as you’d expect.

Known as a die-hard Knicks fan (that explains a lot), Rapaport said he’d have to check if he still had his wallet on him if he ever shook hands with Cal.


Here’s the tweet he sent out the night of the NBA Draft:

To make matters worse, he finishes the tweet by telling kids to “Go to St. Johns” rather than the University of Kentucky.

Let’s take a look at the current NBA players that played at St. Johns:

  • Metta World Peace
  • Maurice Harkless

And… That’s all.

Just taking a quick scroll through his IMDB, Rapaport’s hit roles as “Bartender” in Sully and “Animation Voice” in Middle School: The Worst Years of My Life show how much weight his comments carry in the world of sports. I guess his role in a few Celebrity Challenges during NBA All-Star Weekend mean… something.

I guess it’s a good thing he’ll never have to worry about shaking hands with Calipari.
