John Calipari, On Possibility Of Having To Rebuild In 2015-16: "This Is Kentucky, We Do Whatever We Want"

With Kentucky expected to lose at least five players to the NBA Draft, it is highly unlikely that the Wildcats will be in position to make another run at an undefeated season.

Tyler Ulis and Marcus Lee are expected back at Kentucky next season, while Alex Poythress and Dakari Johnson are reportedly mulling over the decision. Calipari expects the rest of his rotation players to leave. Even with all of that turnover, Kentucky will once again have one of the most talented rosters in the country. Calipari is bringing in the nation's top recruiting class, which currently features three blue chip players, and he will have plenty of scholarships available for some of the nation's top undecided players.
