John Calipari doesn’t even take the night before his hip surgery off. Cal was in Louisville last night to receive the HELP Award for Philanthropy at the Grace at the Race at the Kentucky Center. WHAS11’s Renee Murphy was there and caught up with Cal, who once again said he’s not interested in the Lakers job, despite rumors to the contrary. Here’s what he’s said to Renee:
“I’m at Kentucky, it’s where I want to coach. I’ve got a great job. I’m not saying the Lakers job is not a great job. Pro jobs are different jobs. Obviously the Lakers, Chicago, New York…you know, those are…but, I’m happy here. I have no intention from moving from here.”
Cal also admitted he’s “scared to death” about his hip surgery today. You got this, Cal. And please, get some rest.
