UK fans, you guys are LITERALLY insane if you think that NYC doesnt have more to offer than :lanekiffin:ing lexington kentucky....seriously, get a grip. I've lived in both places and NYC, especially NYC with money, is 10000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000 times better than lexington. Maybe he's not leaving but I see no reason why he wouldnt jump at the chance to coach a good team for twice the money and all the perks of living in new york. haha you guys way over estimate your whole state sometimes, kentucky, as a state, is the worst place ive ever lived. Tiny roads with bad drivers and a hole cops, the worst weather/mold problems anyone could imagine short of siberia, and no attractions. No water, no theme parks, no reason to visit kentucky unless you like horses, and if you like horses you better have a shit ton of money. Sorry, I know this will offend some people but I really needed to vent about my time there because the state blows hard....not a knock on the people I met all kinds of nice people there.
Money isn't an issue as he already has plenty of that and Cal has said himself that he has more money now than he knows what to do with so it won't be a money issue if he ever chooses to leave for another place. He has often given advice to his own assistants when they are considering to leave for a head coaching job of their own. He says unless its a good situation at small school where they can win right away or one of the schools in the major confernces then they shouldn't go. The Knicks are a MESS right now from the administration down to the players. They are locked up in big contracts with Amare and Carmelo to where they don't have as many options in terms of getting other good players. They don't play defense. They don't listen to their head coach. And the list keeps going.
I wouldn't mind if Calipari left but for the Knicks? He would be signing his own death certificate and he would be out of a job in a couple of years even though it wouldn't be his fault.
NYC is nicer but it won't matter if he will be out of a job not long after being there because he walked into a poor situation.
