John Calipari and Denny Crum at Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame

John Calipari is a busy man, but he found time to head to Springfield, Massachusetts for some of the events for the Naismith Hall of Fame enshrinement weekend. While he was there, he caught up with former Louisville coach Denny Crum.

Coach Cal tweeted a picture of the two legendary coaches, calling the former Hall of Famer “the one and only Denny Crum!”

Even though he lead the Cardinals to two National Championships and six Final Fours during his time in Louisville, Crum and Calipari have formed a unique friendship over the years. And after suffering from a stroke in late May, it’s nice to see Coach Crum back in good health and traveling again.

Calipari also snapped a picture with Bill Walton and Frank Martin.

    the one and only! I actually had respect for Louisville and appreciated him as a coach. My respect all came tumbling down once 15-second Ricky P join the team. Could you imagine Dean Smith coachinh Duke… or Denny taking a job at Kentucky…. I’m sorry I’m a hater of U of L..lmao!!
