This is a paraphrasing to the best of my memory of an entertaining story about Jimmy V related by host John Saunders on the ESPN Sports Reporters show on Sunday, December 4, 2011.
John's closing comments focused on Jimmy V since ESPN is promoting Jimmy V week to raise funds for cancer research. John mentioned the close friendship he had built with Jimmy V as they were often paired to cover NCAA basketball with John doing play-by-play and Jimmy V as his game analyst.
Saunders told the story of how John Calipari related to Jimmy V his disappointment at having to suspend his star player from playing in a critical game because the player was late for the team bus. John asked Jimmy V how he had handled such situations. Jimmy V replied that it had been his policy to wait until his best seven players were on the bus before deciding it was time for the bus to leave.
