Amare loves Calipari ....

For an interview he did on SportsCenter with ESPN's Kevin Negandhi.

Stoudemire wrote on his Twitter account, @Amareisreal: I truly love that interview that @UKCoachCalipari had on @espn. #topman.

In the interview, Calipari defended players leaving college after one season. He was not asked about his future coaching plans, which is a hot topic among Knicks fans.

Calipari is expected to be a candidate in the Knicks' offseason search for a head coach. Mike Woodson, of course, is building a strong candidacy of his own as interim coach, leading New York to a 9-2 record since taking over on March 14.
