Calipari: Woodson Will be Knicks Coach
He (John Calipari) is the king of college basketball — and Kentucky — and said once again he has no interest in leaving the Bluegrass State for Madison Square Garden or anyother NBA job.
“Mike Woodson is a dear friend of mine and he is doing an unbelievable job and he has gotten Carmelo (Anthony) to be the Carmelo he needs to be to win,” Calipari said. “And I got the best job in basketball, in my opinion. You don’t need to make decisions financially, which I did the last time when I went to the Nets. Fifteen million back in 1996, when you’re a kid, is like $30 million now. At Kentucky, you can win championships. And you have a stage that really helps the young people.
“I’m not going to to the Knicks. Mike Woodson will be your coach.”
