Neither Money Nor LeBron Could Pull Calipari Away From UK

+

"Now, obviously coaching at Kentucky is special. It is unique and special. But this, for me, becomes about these kids. I have no desire, nor am I out looking for (jobs). I got the job. I got the job. What would move me to stay was these kids need me here. That's what I'm doing. At the end of the day, that was what (kept him at UK). It wasn't money." - John Calipari

Not anymore, it's not. Duke got away with something that no school ever gets away with, and why? I can't tell you. If the sun rose tomorrow in the west, I wouldn't be able to explain that, either. Even if I saw it with my own eyes, as I did with Duke in 1999.

Will Coach K, Duke skate again? Yes, unless the heat stays on Blue Devils - CBSSports.com

You play with [Andrew] Wiggins, you play with the Harrison twins, you play with Julius Randle, I would envision an up-and-down game and an opportunity for people who pose a threat from the outside to be able to given that opportunity. Simultaneously, if you have an opportunity to get to the bucket and create some things, I think it just presents a very interesting scenario, I really do.

Kentucky target James Young on the prospect of playing with other elite talents. At this point, it really appears that John Calipari is all in with the Harrison twins, Wiggins, Randle, and Young. Dream big, eh? [via.]

"...the family "decided to try to lock up anything ‘brow’ out there."...Davis’ father said. "The brow brand is his, so we wanted to go ahead and trademark it." Just don't step on Unibroue...been one of my favorite beer makers for about ten years..which now has a new, UK connection, sort of. For those who can find it, try Maudite.

2. Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski said Kentucky’s Anthony Davis -- the consensus No. 1 pick in the upcoming NBA draft -- brings shot-blocking, something the U.S. Olympic team may need this summer in London. Davis’ chances have risen due to the injury to Orlando’s Dwight Howard. Krzyzewski said Davis isn’t "trying out" for the team; rather, Davis is now in the pool of players who may be selected. Krzyzewski said it would be good to get Davis indoctrinated right away into USA Basketball. "He’s a great talent and a good kid," Krzyzewski said. "Hopefully we don’t get any more guys hurt."

There's a quality certain people have, the ability to make you feel important. John Calipari didn't just make me feel like I was the only guy in the room, he made me feel like I was the only guy in the world.

"Cal is a pretty decent dude...."
