Coach Cal says David Blatt is the better choice to coach the Cavs


John Calipari was a guest on SiriusXM NBA Radio and the hosts of The Starting Lineup were interested to know his thoughts on the Cavaliers, the franchise he turned down to return to UK. Cal told them, “David Blatt can really coach. He’s a better choice than me to coach that team. I coached against him. I’m not sitting here just saying it. I coached against him in FIBA basketball. I watched him coach Russia, the guy can coach, OK? Those players, all they want is respect. If they respect you as a coach they’re going to play like crazy. Now you just have to have really good players. Guess what? Cleveland has really good players.”

Cal also said, “Dan Gilbert is a great guy who wants it for the right reasons. That’s why Cleveland will win.”

You can listen to the entire interview below. I really like when he says he maintains a solid relationship with NBA teams, not for himself, but because he calls them every summer to tell them to draft his UK players.

  1. The earth of Mafia Wars has virtually blossomed into a massive platform in which millions of people from unique nations play the game every day.

    It will be far more constructive confronting a cheating partner with real proof, instead of just a feeling that things are
    not right. You don’t even have to worry about
    harvesting them, just erase them once they are planted
    and replant them with new seeds.

    Setting himself up nicely for an amicable Cavs takeover next season.
