Cal not interested in coaching John Starks
Not that this has really even been an issue this off-season, but if there were any doubts if Calipari would look at the Knicks if that job opened, a NY Post articleshould put those to an end. Peter Vecsey says that Calipari believes GM Donnie Walsh and Head Coach Mike D’Antoni will be retained for next season. Cal does admit that those same people told him Lebron would go to New York, but he can only rely on the sources he has, which Vecsey says are WW Wes and Leon Rose. Now, if those sources are wrong and Walsh and D’Antoni are canned, then the article does not say Calipari would not be interested. In fact, none of Cal’s quotes say that. They simply say he doesn’t believe the job will be open.
You would have to think though, we are too far in the summer and Cal has too good a class coming in, for this to become an issue, even if the Knicks came calling. And as many egos as that team currently has, not real sure why anyone would want that job except for loads of cash. Which I think Cal already has, correct? Or did he ever sign his contract?
