The Cal Cast of the century has received plenty of hype since John Calipari announced on last night’s call-in show that Rick Pitino joined the program.
Today Pitino had the opportunity to describe the 45-minute discussion during a pregame press conference. Just like Calipari, Pitino initially didn’t know what a podcast was. Once he figured out it wasn’t a video, Pitino said he enjoyed his time talking on the phone with John Calipari.
“We had a lot of fun doing it.” Pitino said the two “talked about people we’ve crossed paths with that we’re very fond of. We laughed a lot.”
Laughter?!?!?!?! Between Cal and Rick? You gotta be kidding.
“I’ve never had a bad relationship with John,” he said.
Okay, Rick. Now we’re the ones laughing.
Here’s video of everything Pitino had to say, courtesy of KSTV.
