John Calipari is one of the game's most polarizing coaches. He is the central figure in the one-and-done era. Somehow, he's convinced a multitude of high school All-Americans that they're better off playing together than they would be on separate teams.
He's pumping out pros at a ridiculous rate. We've never seen anything like this.
John Wall, DeMarcus Cousins, Brandon Knight and Anthony Davis are just a few of the players who've gone on to earn NBA paychecks during his tenure. And there are clearly future lottery picks in the pipeline.
