Calipari is 60. His window to "correct" the view that he isn't an NBA caliber coach is closing. This would be his last best chance to correct that view. Especially if he has LeBron and can help pull in Anthony Davis. Lakers will offer crazy money and oh by the way if it doesn't work out NCAA teams will be knocking down his door to hire him even at age 65. He'd be able to resume current shenanigans back in the NCAA with more money in his personal bank account.
