John Calipari Cares! WATCH How He Saved The Life Of A Young Man Who Was Given Only 24 Hours To Live


When we say or mention the name John Calipari, we immediately think about his accomplishments in the world of college basketball. Under his leadership, the Kentucky Wildcats became one of the favorite teams to win the championship, always. He has won almost 85 percent of his games, helping the Wildcats reach five Elite Eights, four Final Fours and two NCAA title games (and he is about to get another title shot this season). Calipari, with all of his great achievements and accomplishments, simply dominated college basketball.

Calipari’s leadership and coaching skills became a big inspiration to many people, especially the young ones. He impacted so many lives in so many different ways. One of those lives that were greatly and positively impacted by Calipari belongs to number one University of Kentucky fan Kevin Massey.

Seriously got goosebumps reading through this blog post and watching the YouTube video. Incredible story!

I cannot imagine waking up and not being able to move, then getting that prognosis. Sweet mercy, what a story and after 6 months later - returning. He certainly does have something to live for. Doesn't he. I have to say, my eyes welled up.
