The 68-year-old prostate- and skin-cancer survivor hasn't officially committed to returning after winning his third national championship.
Some people are saying you should retire while you're on top. What do you think?
Jim Calhoun: Are you trying to get rid of me? I promised my wife when I was 53, at 55 I'm going to get out of this. Every spring I contemplate, Is this a good time? I can do other things and want to do other things. But would the addiction to basketball be too much for me? Because I am a true junkie, and the addiction right now is great. It obviously would be for anybody coming off the season we had.
So you are coming back?
JC: I plan to. I've got recruiting trips set up and I'm doing everything I would to come back.
How do you replace Kemba Walker?
JC: You don't. Not when the guy had 965 points this season. When the guy's leadership was absolutely incredible. When you fall in love with him like a son because of the way he treats you and everyone around him. When he represents everything you want about college athletics. It's impossible to replace him. So we'll have to find other ways. I feel comfortable we'll have a good basketball team next year.
Did people underestimate the players around Walker?
