John Calipari is on every channel promoting his new book. Tuesday he was on ESPN’s First Take with Skip Bayless and Stephen A. Smith and talked about many things.
Calipari was asked toward the end of the interview by Bayless if the Lakers called and offered would he listen. He said no.
Watch complete interview below.
Before the National Championship game against UConn former Kentucky Wildcat Rex Chapman tweeted out that Calipari to the Lakers was a done deal. Calipari was asked about the rumor immediately following the loss and denied it.
Coach Cal told Bayless the story of how he found out about the rumor after the game in the locker room. He told his players that it was not true, but then asked Anthony Davis if he would go with him.
John Calipari also discussed his ideas of how the NCAA should be handling it’s athletes. Some ideas Cal has been preaching for years. It is a fascinating interview, I am sure Cal will be tired of answering all the same questions by the end of Wednesday.
