Matt Jones of Kentucky Sports Radio (locally known in the DMV for his brief spat with the Sports Junkies on Twitter and DC 106.7FM The Fan), has commented on a tweet made by Dan Wolken of TheDaily.com to have Cal teach LeBron how win a title. Matt is nervous enough to state, even if half jokingly, that UK fans should be rooting for the Heat to win.
All of these rumors cannot be helping Cal in his battle with Coach Turgeon for the Harrison twins. I think this uncertainty is important, not necessarily for this upcoming season. I think it's important for the 2013-14 season. I still maintain Cal's hectic pace that he maintains, by which most accounts is one of the most busy of any D1 head coaches in the country, will continue to grate on him and continue a level of exhaustion that will not subside. Cal does more booster events, fundraisers, charity appearances, etc., and it admittedly wears on him (see a couple of past Sports illustrated articles on Cal). I give him more credit than most for that aspect of his work ethic, which is often overlooked by Cal detractors. That positive is also a big negative.
I maintain my prediction that Cal will be an NBA Head Coach/minority owner of an NBA team within 5 years. But the distinct possibility that Calipari bolts for a much greener pasture than even the Bluegrass State's US News 124th ranked Flagship College can provide, may soon be part of the school choice puzzle that convinces Andrew Harrison to get on the Maryland side of the equation with brother Aaron.
Biggest reason UK fans should be Heat fans this year RT
@DanWolken: LeBron needs the coach in Lexington to teach him how to win a title.
