CINCINNATI, OH – Former New Jersey Nets stars Sam Cassell, Kerry Kittles, Keith VanHorn, and Sherman Douglas will reunite with John Calipari on the fifth episode of “Coffee with Cal” in partnership with CustMbite. Calipari coached the Nets from 1996 – 1999, a tenure which included a playoff defeat by Michael Jordan’s Chicago Bulls during their sixth and final championship season. This playoff series will be featured in one of the episodes of The Last Dance this Sunday on ESPN. Coffee with Cal will air on Monday, May 11th at 10:30 AM ET.
