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.
