Meantime, Calipari, who has consistently been linked to NBA openings during his tenure at Kentucky, said he’s happy at Kentucky and isn’t interested in coaching Davis with the Lakers. “I’m at Kentucky having a ball preparing young people for the rest of their life,” he said. “It’s a different job than coaching in the NBA. I think Luke [Walton] is doing outstanding work. I’ve watched him coach, I’ve watched his demeanor. I’ve watched his adjustments. He’s coaching a young team in that league and that league is unforgiving now. In that league you’re not playing Popcorn State next week, you’re playing a professional team. Even the teams that are struggling have terrific players.
