It’s early May and that means the NBA coaching carousel is beginning to spin.

As such, Kansas coach Bill Self’s name often gets whipped up into rumors and speculation as a college coach who might be in demand by NBA general managers.

All the talk? That’s all it is, Self said Friday in Lawrence while talking to a group of reporters after the groundbreaking for the DeBruce Center.

“There’s nothing about me and the NBA. Zero,” Self said, his comments first transcribed by the Topeka Capital-Journal. “Anybody that would waste any time on talk radio talking about that … surely there’s some Royals games or something like that going on that other people can talk about.”
