John Calipari and Larry Brown are buddies going back to the days Cal was an assistant under Brown at Kansas and the Philadelphia 76ers. Brown became a popular name around these parts last year with his constant, and sometimes over-the-top, praise of the Cats, who he said could make the NBA Playoffs.

Brown heaped even more love on Calipari and the Cats yesterday on The 4 Quarters Podcast with Adam Zagoria. When Zagoria mentioned the NBA rumors surrounding Cal, Brown said Cal already has “the best job in basketball”:

“The reason John’s name is mentioned [for NBA jobs] is because he’s a great coach, and why wouldn’t anybody want to play for him? I really believe he’s got the best job in basketball,” Brown said. “Everywhere he goes, when we recruit, he’s recruiting five guys and he’s gonna get four and a half of them. We’re recruiting 150 and we’re lucky if we get two.”
