Nothing like a rapey five-star...
Coach K is even recruiting one and done. He might have the top 4 picks in the 2019 draft coming to him next year.
It only makes sense to go after the best players you can possibly get. If they leave after a year they leave. Not all of them have the Ben Simmons I'd rather be having a root canal than be here attitude.
I was looking at some NBA rosters the other day and the league is littered with former Wildcats who were first rounders. Not all of them are superstars like Boogie and the Brow but most of them helped Kentucky for the year they were in Lexington. With the guys we have coming in we could be a preseason top 10. That's a huge step up from being one of the worst teams in the NCAA last year.
Howard Carter (Hi-C) Leonard Mitchell (one of my faves), Don Reden
Who else was on that team? Tudor?
Rudy Macklin the cookie man Willie sims the super sub and Ethan Martin
I thought redden was after. Johnny Jones was there.
Greg the Cookie Man Cook was on that team. Duane the Astronaut Scales was a year or two earlier.
