Since the National Championship, Kentucky head basketball coach John Calipari has said that he's not leaving the Wildcats for another job and is happy where he is. However, Wednesday the coach did say he would leave UK to coach one NBA player...

“Are you kidding me?” the University of Kentucky coach said “Have a chance to coach the best player in the world? Yes, I would love to coach him. But what’s happened is our careers are criss-crossing without crossing.

“I’m not in a position where I would leave Kentucky right now. I’m not sure whether this is his last contract, or his next-to-last contract. But I would tell you if I had a chance to, I would absolutely.”

“You’d have a chance to say, ‘I coached here, I coached here and I coached Derrick Rose and I coached LeBron James,” said Calipari, who has been linked to other NBA openings. “Are you kidding me? To know he’s all about championship. He’s all about family. He will defer. He will give up money. He’ll do whatever he has to.

“Yes, I would love to coach him. But early in his career I said maybe that would happen happen some day, but as we both get older it doesn’t appear that it will happen. But he and I have never discussed it.”
