John Calipari: ‘I wouldn’t & couldn’t leave this group’

Mike D’Antoni resigned as the head coach of the Los Angeles Lakers on Wednesday night, a move that sent a collective chill down the spine of every member of Big Blue Nation.

If you’ve forgotten, less than an hour before Kentucky was to take the court in the national title game against UConn, former Kentucky player and current broadcaster Rex Chapman tweeted out that Kentucky coach John Calipari was a “done deal” to take over the Laker job.

Cal also topped this list of potential replacements for D’Antoni, and that’s certainly not going to be the last time that his name gets tossed out there, which is why Calipari felt the need to fire out this tweet:

That’s now two coaches in two days that have felt the need to publicly say they are committed to their universities.

I wonder if Fred Hoiberg and Billy Donovan will be next.
