John Calipari Rumors

The president-coach model has cycled through several incarnations, including the failed regimes of Rick Pitino and John Calipari, who never accepted that the players are the stars in the NBA; that dictatorships only work on campus. Four years ago, Rivers told me: “The risk is all mine. To go to an organization that hasn’t won but [two] playoff series in their entire history, in a town where the other team is the best franchise in sports history — that’s risk. “But the opportunity — for me — gives me life. If we get this right, it will be the story of stories to tell. At this point in my life, the gamble is worth it.”
