I am no "self-help" type. Its pretty obvious if you know me. But Coach Calipari made me a believer on Jim Rome's radio program today (01.15). Not to say that I am going to go buy any self-help or motivational literature, but I could listen to Coach Cal talk about his theories on getting ahead and "Bouncing Back" (the title of his upcoming book) for another half hour.
His story about when he got fired from the Nets and how Larry Brown picked him up and basically saved his career swayed me from a Larry Brown hater, to a full-fledged member of the Larry Brown Fan Club. When he told about how Brown purposely got himself kicked out of the game so Cal could coach the team against his former employer, the Nets, I was bowled over. What a good man larry Brown is. I know most don't beleive that, but that story tell otherwise.
I have never been a Larry Brown or John Calipari fan at all. That changed today. It certainly makes it obvious how Coach Cal manages to recruit kids to Memphis. Never have to wonder about that ever again.
If you can find the interview from today, be sure to listen to it. It might be on Jim Rome's website. You won't be disappointed.
