Just like that, here comes John Calipari on the white horse to make us all feel better. Cal sent out this statement seconds ago:
“For the 100th time, I have the best basketball coaching position in the world. I am not looking for any other coaching position. Since he bought the team, Vivek Ranadive and I have talked on and off about DeMarcus Cousins. Vivek has asked me what I thought about DeMarcus and I told him he would be an all-star, and I was right. In the last two weeks, we’ve also talked a bunch about the draft and on draft day, obviously because of Willie Cauley-Stein. At no time has Vivek offered me a job. I will be at Kentucky.”
That last part in tweet form because it was awesome:
At no time has @Vivek offered me a job. I WILL BE AT KENTUCKY.
