Video: John Calipari’s national championship locker room speech



Even in his post-championship speech, head coach John Calipari sounds like he’s giving a recruiting pitch. He gives special attention to Eloy Vargas, Brian Long and Twany Beckham. He talks about sacrificing for the greater good of the team, about setting a new standard for how a team of talented individuals can play, about completing a season “for the ages.”

And then he dances.

Watch the close-to-full locker room speech Calipari delivered to his team after winning the national championship — and the players’ unbridled joy as they react to the camera, nets draped around their necks, here.
