Video: Rex Chapman Joins Dan Patrick, Backtracks On Cal-To-Lakers "Done Deal" Tweet

Before last night's national championship game even began, Kentucky fans were already in a state of panic after former Wildcat great Rex Chapman tweeted that he heard it was a "done deal" that head coach John Calipari would be leaving UK to become the next coach of the Los Angeles Lakers. After the game, which Kentucky lost to UConn, both Calipari and the Lakers denied the rumor. Today, Chapman joined Dan Patrick on his radio to clarify what he'd heard. 

Chapman backtracked a bit, even telling Patrick that he believes that Calipari will remain on the sidelines in Lexington next season. Patrick tried to give him a lesson in social media, telling him that tweeting "done deal" implies that he's breaking news, not just mentioning a rumor.

Chapman made it clear that he isn't too worried about the reaction he's been getting from UK fans. What do you think - did he go too far here?
