Anthony Davis will go down as one of the best players in the University of Kentucky’s history, one of the schools three total No. 1 overall NBA Draft choices.
Since 1947, 129 former Wildcats have been chosen in the NBA Draft, making choosing a list of the best an incredibly tough task. The New Orleans Pelicans superstar did just that, tackling his all-time University of Kentucky starting five.
He didn’t state if it were current NBA players or in the university’s entire history. Leaving the likes of Pat Riley, Jamal Mashburn and Tayshaun Prince, and himself out of this list if it really is ‘all-time’ is a bold move.
If there were one team in the league that boasts a starting five of John Wall, Eric Bledsoe, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, Karl Anthony-Towns and DeMarcus Cousins, with Devin Booker off the bench, that would be one hell of a spectacle.
A playoff bound team or not we’ll likely never know, but they’d likely have the toughest spelled and most hyphenated team in league history.
