Coach Cal Not In Favor Of The G League? Color Me Shocked
University of Kentucky men’s basketball coach John Calipari is not a big proponent of the NBA’s G league path; in other news, the Twilight Saga sucked. See what I did there? OF COURSE Coach Cal is against the G league route that’s opened up, it’s going to suck his talent up better than Duke ever could. Cal has made a career out of the one-and-doner, and now that the G League will pay players just as much as UK to not go to class, he has a reason to be worried.
"My issue with the G League trying to entice players by giving them more money is not the kids that you're getting," Calipari said Monday on his Coffee with Cal web show (h/t Jon Hale of the Louisville Courier Journal). "It's the thousands of ninth and 10th graders that think that's how they're going to make it when you and I know it's going to be 2 percent. We're not talking 50. It will be thousands and thousands and thousands."
