NBA Execs. say Pitino prepares kids for NBA better than Cal

Rick Pitino 2

ESPN’s Jeff Goodman interviewed “NBA Personnel” on which College coaches they believe prepare players the best for then NBA and our own Coach Pitino’s name was on that list. Now it isn’t shocking at all to see Rick’s name show up on that list but what may be surprising to our pals to the east is who he is ahead of. Pitino came in at #9 just ahead of John Calipari at #10.

1. Billy Donovan (Florida)
2. Ben Howland
3. John Beilein (Michigan)
4. Tom Izzo (Michigan State)
5. Fred Hoiberg (Iowa State)
6. Mike Krzyzewski (Duke)
7. Bill Self (Kansas)
8. Buzz Williams (Virginia Tech)
9. Rick Pitino (Louisville) 
10. John Calipari  (Kentucky)
11. Sean Miller (Arizona)
12. Tony Bennett (Virginia)

Also to no one’s surprise at #1 is the Rick Pitino disciple Billy Donovan. Look are we saying Pitino is a better coach than Cal???………Well yea that’s pretty much what I am saying. So come on with the head to head record all you want but at the end of the day Rick Pitino not only makes his guys better players but better men and I will take that any day of the week. #L1C4
