John Calipari is the perfect man to talk to for the new Knicks regime. Team President Leon Rose and Executive Vice President William “World Wide Wes” Wesley are “dear friends” and new assistant coach Kenny Payne is someone Calipari knew the Knicks had to have.
For that and many other reasons, he will be sure to watch the Knicks this season.
“Yeah, I’ll watch a lot of Knicks games. Leon is a dear friend, Wes is a close friend, Kenny [Payne] – he’s like my brother. And now there are some of my boys there,” Calipari told the media. via Zoom on Mondays.
