John Calipari was spotted watching four of his former players at the Team USA minicamp yesterday, but that’s not the only reason he is in Las Vegas this week. Coach Cal is a coach in the Team USA Basketball Fantasy Camp, a ProCamps event similar to his own John Calipari Fantasy Experience. Cal will be coaching a lot of the same campers he’ll see in Lexington this fall.
The USAB Fantasy Camp kicks off today with evaluations, team selection, practices and the first round of games followed by a dinner hosted by Jay Bilas tonight. Tomorrow they’ll play two more games before Thursday’s camp playoffs and a scrimmage against the U.S. National Team minicampers.
It’s OK to be jealous of the campers. I certainly am.
