John Calipari Rumors
It’s now or never for Knox as a Knick. Team president Leon Rose is close to Kentucky coach John Calipari but was a Creative Artists Agency rep when Knox was drafted ninth. “I got to compete for it,’’ Knox said. “Everything Thibs preaches is working for your spot , working for your minutes. That’s my mindset going into camp. Really working hard for my minutes, working hard to get into the rotation. That’s my motivation — to play hard on both sides of the basketball court if I really want to be on the court.’’
NBA superstar Anthony Davis tied the knot with his longtime partner, Marlen P, and celebrities from across the entertainment spectrum came out to celebrate the event.
