John Calipari will be all over ESPN on Thursday, starting on “Mike and Mike” at 8 a.m. with Karl Towns and continuing through the day until the Draft that night. Here’s a schedule of his appearances:
– Mike & Mike (8 am to 10 am)
– First Take (10 am)
– SportsCenter (11 am)
– His & Hers (12 pm)
– Highly Questionable (4:30 pm)
…and a teaser from ESPN, in which Calipari says he plans to “beat down” First Take host Stephen A. Smith.

This morning, Calipari claimed he wouldn’t have done the ESPN media tour without Karl Towns, which has to be the top one of the top Calipari lies of all time:
“I’m gonna be up there and they asked me to come in with Karl Towns. I wouldn’t have done it if it was by myself. So I said, ‘Karl, do you want to do this?’. He said, ‘Yeah, let’s go have some fun,'” Cal said. “Any chance I can to brag about my kids and they give me that opportunity, oh, I’m bragging about my guys, now. …The chance to brag about these guys — and how about the chance to brag about the 25 guys in the league and talk about what they’ve been able to do. You give me a chance to do that and I can do it with a player, with Karl Towns, he and I can have some fun and have a couple good hours together, I do it.”
That quote is so Calipari.
