Is your coach “La Familia” status with Jay-Z? Ours is…

John Calipari visited the brand-spankin-new Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York last night. He caught up with his buddies, Irv Gotti, Magic Johnson, Nets head coach Avery Johnson, and The Hov himself, Jay-Z.

Because having the likes of Drake at an alumni game wasn’t already a home run with recruits… Seriously, how does anyone ever win a recruiting battle against John Calipari?

I once successfully requested "The Wobble" to be played 6 times at one wedding.

    I wish Cal would stay away from this guy…he is a racist and former drug dealer…he should not be celebrated.

    13) the one thing about basketball players is their love of both kinds of music. Country AND Western.

    #14 Jay Z is far from a racist and is one of the best musicians in his business, yes he may have been into some drugs as a teen,but who in this world hasnt, oh im sorry( i didnt inhale) and you prob voted for him lol. but im a WHITE all around music lover who very well respects Jay, Calipari def knows what hes doing,The man knows how to recruit,think about how many of these recruits are swayed in our direction by just the fact who we bring in for midnight madness, and games. There is NO one better at recruiting than Calipari, hands down, Go Big Blue.

    So what…I was hanging out with Barry Manilow just last Spring and you should have seen Wojo and I kicking it with “Coco Cabana”.

    Irv Gotti, how’d he get it in, isn’t he bankrupt living in a box. That dude hasn’t been irrelevant in years.

    Cal has defiantly got panache.

    27, you’ve never seen Queen if you think Freddie Mercury didn’t play an instrument

    31 – you’re right, I’ve only seen him sing. I mean I was 10 when he died. I’m guessing he played the piano and maybe guitar even. But you get my point. He was known for his voice. I do know Jay Z plays the drums live sometimes at his shows.

    Just curious. Why do UK fans get so “hyped up” about Calipari knowing Jay-Z? Seriously, is it that big of a deal???

    #34..It’s a huge deal, if you were a 17-18 year old kid and thought you might get to rub shoulders with guys like Jay-Z and Drake it would be a huge deal to you too.
