  • Tim Hardaway 
  • Kevin Johnson 
  • Bo Ryan, Wisconsin head coach

  • Dick Bavetta, NBA referee
  • Bill Fitch, former NBA coach
  • Spencer Haywood
  • Robert Hughes, high school coach 
  • Jo Jo White

When finding out about his name on the list of finalists, Calipari told ESPN, "I'm at a loss for words. I want to thank the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame committee for even considering me," Coach Cal explained. "The process is by no means over -- I'm just a finalist at this point -- but to even be mentioned as a finalist among these worthy candidates is an unbelievable honor. I am absolutely humbled by this."
