John Wall went on The Dan Patrick Show this morning to talk about the Wizards being in the second round of the NBA Playoffs, and predictably, Patrick asked him what he thought about the rumors of John Calipari going to the NBA. Wall said that while he thinks Cal would be a “great NBA coach,” he’s not going anywhere:
“I think he’d be a great NBA coach, but I think he’s satisfied and happy. Being at Kentucky was his dream job. The stuff he’s done since he’s been there has been pretty amazing.”
So, he’s at UK for good, right?
“Yeah, that’s how I feel. That’s what I think. Yeah, in my best opinion.”
Wall also said he’d approve of a rule allowing players to come to the league directly from high school OR go to college for two years. What would he had done if the rule had been in place his senior year of high school?
“I promised my Dad I would go to college, so I would have went to Kentucky.“
That’s why we love you, kid. Keep making us proud.
