    @AlexKennedyNBA
    .@rexchapman tweets that John Calipari to the Los Angeles Lakers is a "done deal" regardless of what happens in tonight's game. Interesting.

    That would be a huge Lebron recruiting pitch right there.

    Why? Calipari didn't do much as an NBA coach. He wins in college because he has the best players.

    Alex Kennedy is one of the biggest tools on twitter and in media general. He knows nothing, and his sources are himself, him and he.

    The only interesting question is, who then becomes the head coach at Kentucky?

    If you were to say one bad word about that man at my Grandmas, she'd kick you right out of the door. No joke!

    not in the least likely... at least not right now
