5 Kentucky Wildcats’ Men’s Basketball Players Declare for the NBA Draft

5 Kentucky Wildcat Men’s Basketball players declared for the 2010 NBA draft. Can you believe it? Not only is it 5 players from the same team but 4 of the players are freshman.

The freshman are John Wall, of course, DeMarcus Cousins, Eric Bledsoe, and Daniel Orton. Only one Junior that plans to be drafted this year and he is Patrick Patterson.

With an ending record of 35-3 these young men worked extremely hard and deserve to be looked at as some of the best prospects in the draft.

A Lot of Memphis fans are laughing saying that Former Memphis Coach John Calipari went to Kentucky and did NOT get as far as he did with the Tigers. 96% of Kentucky’s offense and defense is entering the draft, so what does that leave Kentucky with? How does Calipari feel about this situation?

“It’s extremely unusual for four freshmen from the same team to have this opportunity, but it’s my job as a coach to prepare these young men for such opportunities,” Calipari said. The men have until May 8th to change their minds, but I doubt they will. Especially John Wall who is positioned to be the #1 overall pick.

“I’m not the same player as when I arrived at UK,” Wall said. “I believe I’m ready for the next challenge as Derrick Rose and Tyreke Evans were the last two years under Coach Cal.”
