The college career of mostly every single one of John Calipari’s Kentucky Wildcats has come to an end as the likes of Andrew Harrison, Aaron Harrison, John Randle, Willie Cauley-Stein, James Young and others will be entering htshte NBA Draft this summer and ending their short stints in the NCAA.

But while Calipari is notorious for having one-and-done players, he too may now be leaving the school along with his exiting freshman class. It was rumored that he’d be leaving the Wildcats for the Los Angeles Lakers on Monday night, but reports of his leaving have been countered with that of NBA executives with little confidence he’d make a good pro coach.


Calipari has had his chance to win in the NBA and has failed. He’s one of the best coaches in college basketball, but it’s unclear whether he’ll go the Pete Carroll route and be successful at both levels, or the Nick Saban route and dominate just one.
