Hey, look who's on the lam again. If John Calipari's looking for another job, that may not be good news for the University of Kentucky, since taking a powder one step ahead of the NCAA posse is something The Skell of Amherst pretty much has raised to an art form. There is so much to marvel at in this story. For example, there is the presence of the delightful William (Worldwide Wes) Wesley, whose job apparently it is to arrange the kind of happy coincidences that seem to follow Calipari from job to job. (To call Wesley a bagman would be dreadfully unfair to bags.) Why the Chicago Bulls possibly want to involve themselves with this passel of cutpurses, even with LeBron James at stake, is utterly beyond me. Note: LeBron's "business manager" is a guy named Maverick? Really? Does everyone on his team have a "call sign," like fighter pilots or the guys on Entourage? Did the guy they call "Grifter" take a job with someone else?

What can possibly go wrong here?
