While in town for the Calipari Fantasy Camp, ESPN’s Seth Greenberg sat down with Cal to film a few short interviews for ESPN, and couldn’t help but ask about LeBron and the Cavaliers. Cal is a bit exasperated with the question, but played along, telling Greenberg that “fate intervened” for him when four players decided to return to Kentucky in lieu of entering the draft, which made his decision to come back simple.
“Fate intervened for me,” Cal said. “Whatever happened after the season with any teams, at the end of the day, this is where I wanted to be. And you know a big part of it is we had four guys stay, and they didn’t have the chance to say ‘well if you leave, we’ll leave.’ No, you already made a decision to stay. So that weighed on me more than anything else.”
Cal only mentioned four, but I’ll mention six. Thank you, Andrew, Aaron, Alex, Willie, Dakari, and Marcus.
