John Calipari campaigns for former Wildcats to make NBA All-Star game

John Calipari is at it again.

Donning a John Wall Washington Wizards jersey, Calipari shot a video campaigning for several of his former Wildcat players to make the NBA All-Star game. Among them are Wall, DeMarcus Cousins, Anthony Davis, Brandon Knight and Karl-Anthony Towns.

He also put in a good word for some former Kentucky players to make the Rising Stars Challenge, including Devin Booker, Trey Lyles, Willie Cauley-Stein, Nerlens Noel and Julius Randle.
