Oklahoma City - Coach Kelvin Sampson tells Playboy Magazine thanks -- but no thanks.

Sampson's been selected as the coach of Playboy's pre-season All-America team. But the Oklahoma basketball coach has opted not to attend next weekend's photo shoot for the magazine.

Sampson says it was a morality decision not to be pictured in Playboy. Sampson says being in the magazine isn't that important -- it's more important to have been chosen for the honor.

Senior guard Hollis Price also was named to the team. Sampson says he plans to discuss the photo shoot with Price but will leave the decision up to him.
