07:44 AM ET 11.22 | Nearing the quarter pole in the NBA, the Knicks are one of the league's great disappointments. Carmelo Anthony came to New York nearly three years ago with a clear mandate. It's pretty obvious, after the Knicks lost their sixth straight home game and dropped to 3-8 on Wednesday night, that this isn't quite what he had in mind. ... This is about a process that began unfolding the night the Knicks finally pulled off the massive trade that brought Anthony to New York in February 2011 -- a process that will only kick into overdrive if the Knicks don't find their way out of this. If they don't, anyone can see what's coming: Mike Woodson gets fired, company man Herb Williams becomes the interim coach and the drumbeat begins in the background for John Calipari to make his long-awaited return to the NBA.

In the NBA Calipari would be hamstrung with the draft order, trading contracts, etc.
In college he can buy any player he wants with cash on the barrel head.
Epic fail in the NBA.

LOL agree! Show Pat Riley what dirty money can do. D Wade would have to relinquish his position as Mafia Don.

Recruiting is what makes a college coach Cal is possibly the best recruiter ever.....And that ability is useless in the pros, so his actual value plummets in the NBA-see rick pitino

Careful. You gonna rile up the crew that thinks it is just as difficult (or even more) to win with all these five star recruits than it is to win with two/three star recruits.

Aside from questions about his NBA success potential, why would any coach with a good gig give it up to work for Dolan?

As long as the rules between the NBA and the NCAA are what they are, this slimeball isn't going anywhere.

Too late. It takes a "Great" coach to do this every year, year in and year out, to just automatically get 5 players, 5 ball hogs, 5 me ball stars, to play and meld as a team instantly. Just ask any coach, it takes years to get them to blend as a team, to mesh together, jeepers, some folks just do not know anything at all when they think they know it all. He might, or might not make a good NBA coach, but they won' get him, wrong place and wrong time.

Aspiring slimeballs look up to him.

November 22, 2013  09:42 AM ET

Any reason why they think he'll succeed where he previously failed?

Who recruited those 5 ball hogs, 5 me ball stars?

November 22, 2013  10:17 AM ET

Put this in the NBA threads, will ya? Doesn't belong in NCAA threads IMO.

Like it or not, Calipari is winning within the rules he has from the NCAA.
It's unconventional, but it's legal, and as far as I know there is no evidence of cheating.

The greatest college coach today, Calipari, of course.
