What's the Ron Harper connection, how did he get involved with this?
Is Calipari teaching his players economics, finance, public relations, public speaking and many other things that an NBA player needs to know to survive in the high dollar, high scrutiny NBA at age 19 or 20?
No, he's a basketball coach, not a life coach or econ professor.
I'd take my chances with a one and done
I'd take this option, too, albeit somewhat reluctantly because it's contrary to my philosophy of intercollegiate athletics.
Tom Izzo recently noted that it's better for Michigan State recruiting to have a Spartan selected in the NBA draft lottery than for the Spartans to win a national championship. Chambers sending a player to the first round of the NBA draft would be a breakthrough for the street cred of Nittany Lion Basketball.
Yes, it seems we are all against those seedy practices of the "dirty" program, that is, until we can actually benefit from it. Then, we seem to be all for it. Runner players off, one and doners, hiring a recruit's family member or coach to land the recruit, etc.
I'm confident in most experienced college coaches' ability to coach fundamentals. This is a recruiting job.
Didn't the Marlins just hire a manager with ZERO managing experience? If Chambers wants to promote everyone on his staff up a spot, I can accept that.
