David Jones of Florida Today reports:

Kentucky basketball coach John Calipari insisted once again at the Southeastern Conference’s spring meetings on Wednesday that he will be coaching the Wildcats next season and not LeBron James.

Rumors have swirled for weeks that Calipari could be James’ next coach in a variety of locations, but Calipari looked almost bored with the continued questions as he stood near a hotel elevator and talked about his status for a few minutes.

“I didn’t deal with it because I made my statement,” Calipari said. “The only people that seemed to not believe me were you guys (media). But I said I was going to be at Kentucky next year. I didn’t need to say anything else.”
