Mark Story: Coach Cal to replace Coach K with U.S. Olympic team? Not likely

John Calipari would bring some big strengths to the role of U.S. Olympics coach. He has shown at Kentucky he is unusually skilled at getting talented players to sublimate individual goals for the good of collective achievements. At UK, he's also shown a knack for getting teams filled with new players to gel quickly. Both of those qualities are exactly what it takes to coach a U.S. Olympic team.
