Not even Rex Chapman believes John Calipari will coach the Lakers


Former Kentucky basketball player Rex Chapman tweeted the Lakers will hire John Calipari as their next coach:

The Lakers denied it. Calipari wouldn’t dignify questions about it.

Of course they did. That’s how these things, even if true, work.

But the “reporter” usually doesn’t say he has no clue whether his report was accurate. However, that’s what Chapman did during an interview with Dan Patrick.

Patrick asked Chapman whether Calipari will still be coaching Kentucky next season.

“I think he will. But, again, who knows? That’s what I hope. That’s what I think. But I don’t know.”

I think we can put this rumor to bed.
