Surely it won’t be much longer for the John Calipari-Los Angeles Lakers rumors/stories finally go away.
Calipari has said he has no interest in the job that came open when Mike D’Antoni was fired and then Mitch Lawrence of the New York Daily News announced that one name can be crossed off the list because the Lakers have no interest in Calipari. Here is what Lawrence posted:
“John Calipari has no shot to get the job, just as he didn’t when Rex Chapman tweeted that Calipari was on his way to Laker-land with a ‘done deal’ as Kentucky hit the court for the NCAA championship game against UConn. Calipari knows the Lakers have zero interest in him and that’s why he tweeted on Friday that he is not leaving the Wildcats.”
So even when he’s being ruled out as a candidate, Calipari still has shots being taken at him by a national media member who basically said Calipari was being less than honest by saying he had no interest in the LA job.
