John Calipari is cranky, seeing pyramids and denying Knicks rumors

Only Coach Cal.

NCAA Basketball: SEC-Media Day Jeremy Brevard-USA TODAY Sports

Rumor. Denial. Rinse. Repeat.

That’s the annual venture we go on every summer as a new rumor of John Calipari having NBA interest pops up. That’s the case we’re going through again this year with news that the New york Knicks are the latest team to draw Coach Cals interest.

Coincidentally or not, these rumors first popped up while Calipari was asleep halfway across the world, around 1 a.m. local time in Egypt.

So you’ll have to excuse Calipari for waking up a little cranky to see rumors of his ‘interest’ in a job other than his current one.

Calipari isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. The Knicks are a mess of a franchise, and it’s going to take a lot more to draw him away from Kentucky than the major rebuild that franchise is undergoing.

We may see Calipari go back to the NBA someday, but it’s going to be in a situation where he can win.
