John Calipari says he's not going anywhere after an article claims the Knicks' job would be too appealing for Calipari to pass up.

LEXINGTON, Ky. - An article by Yahoo! Sports writer Adrian Wojranowski claims Kentucky coach John Calipari won't be able to turn down an opportunity to become the next head coach of the New York Knicks. The lure of the money, limelight, less worry with NCAA recruiting rules and a shaky relationship with UK athletics director Mitch Barnhart are some of the reasons the article cites as to why Calipari would bolt the Bluegrass for the Big Apple.

Calipari responded on his website,, stating he's not going anywhere.

To me, John Calipari is more than a coach. He loves his players, and they love and respect him. He is honest with them, and they appreciate that. More than any other coach, he can take a group of players that are so good that they surely have individual egos, help them learn to love and respect each other, then have them combine their talents unselfishly into a team. Few coaches have the capacity to shed their own egos in favor of getting a group of young men to combine their egos into one, thus turning the young men into a great team. Several years ago basketball lovers thought the Fabulous Five from Michigan could make that accomplishment, but none of them ever sacrificed their own egos to make a team of one collective ego. A great coach for Kentucky has accomplished that near miracle. And it was beautiful to see. I couldn`t finish this without a word for one of the finest athletes I have had the pleasure of watching. Anthony Davis is every thing we want to see in an athlete amd a person. First, he is a very fine young man. He is very humble, and has the best ability to focus on his responsibility than any other young athlete I have ever seen. We wil miss just having him in Kentucky for such a short time.
