John Calipari Owes This Guy Dinner

The last few weeks John Calipari, Memphis basketball coach, has declared war on the media.  Anytime anyone in the media has brought up the free-throw situation to Calipari he has done his best to rip them to pieces and go on the defensive.  Do yourself a favor and watch these videos so you lose all respect that you once had for John Calipari.

Here is an interview with a guy on ESPN news, and you almost have to feel bad for the guy.  Johnny boy tore him to shreds.

Here is a separate video of Calipari interviewing with 'Mike and the Mad Dog'.  Calipari avoided the free-throw talk and instead mentioned D.J. Augustin throwing up a free-throw air ball at the end of Texas' loss to Memphis.  Calipari then proceeds to tell this radio guy that if one of his players (specifically Derrick Rose) misses a game winning free-throw than he'd buy him dinner.  Last night with 10.8 seconds left in the game, Rose missed a free-throw that would have given Memphis a four-point lead and likely put the game out of reach for Kansas.

I say the guy calls up Mr. Calipari and demands a good steak.
