John Calipari Finally Wins Title
John Calipari, the svengali of the one and done athletes that delay their move to the NBA due to mandatory age restrictions, has finally translated his superior recruiting skills into a national championship. It is Kentucky's 8th crown overall.
Calipari should arguably have two titles. in 2008 as coach of Memphis, Calipari's team, which included one and done Derrick Rose and Chris Douglas-Roberts saw a nine point lead disappear when Rose was unable to make freethrows down the stretch.
That was then, this is now. Calipari also took UMass and Marcus Camby to the brink in 1996. the man knows how to coach and am glad he finally won the big game.
Time to give him his due.
