Rex Chapman clarifies Calipari comments
Kentucky basketball analyst Rex Chapman joined the show to explain his Tweet that John Calipari is headed to the Lakers.
He said that he heard from two reliable sources that it’s a “done deal” that Calipari is headed to the Lakers. He pointed out that he said “word is” … so he says that doesn’t necessarily mean it’s a done deal. In fact, Chapman thinks that Calipari is more likely to stay at Kentucky. He thinks Calipari could be bargaining to get more money from Kentucky and said the coach has to deal with that every year.
Chapman said “I’m not a journalist,” and said he doesn’t take criticism seriously.
Chapman said that the hub-bub around this doesn’t bother him: “I’ve been dealing with the uninformed [in Kentucky] since I was 17. I’m 46, it’s sure [not going to bother me now].
