PBT Extra: Should the Brooklyn Nets offer John Calipari $120 million?
If you are John Calipari — who still has an NBA itch, no matter how much he denies it — and you are offered total control of a franchise and $120 million, you take it. That includes Brooklyn, where the rebuilding process will be long and hard.
If you are the Brooklyn Nets should you offer it? Not at 10 years, no.
That’s what I tell Jenna Corrado in this latest PBT Extra. More than the Phil Jackson level money annually, it’s the 10 years that would scare me off. Calipari has failed once in the NBA, and I’m not marrying him for that long.
