John Calipari has hired a friend of Lebron James to be a graduate assistant. I wonder if the guy had not been a friend of James, whether he would have had a shot at the position.
I don't see an NCAA infraction here, and I'm sure that UK's compliance people signed off on it. However, as a general rule, if you use these guys who are "part of ________'s inner circle," you generally get into trouble.
It happened at the University of Memphis. From all I remember, Derrick Rose's brother got free trips and flew on the team plane.
And what about Lebron James himself? Is he a booster? How does he get around the rules that apply to all of the rest of us?
Can't figure out whether the recent move by Calipari is smart or dumb.
