Up until Monday’s championship game, Kentucky coach John Calipari was already on of the best coaches in the country, and quite possible the best. Before the game, Calipari stated that the championship game didn’t decide his legacy. And his supporters may be saying you don’t need a championship to validate your career. However, whatever the University of Kentucky coach and his fans may be saying, that final game in New Orleans matters plenty, and will shape his legacy. The result, was a tremendous performance by his team, led by Anthony Davis, and in the end Kentucky had won its first national championship since 1998. With this win, Calipari placed himself among the greatest coaches of all time. Leading three different teams to the Final Four, and of the highest winning percentages in college basketball history puts Calipari right there at the top of coaching legends.
