Over 50% Of Americans Thinks Kentucky Would Beat The 76ers

Kentucky basketball, littered with 10 potential future NBA Draft picks, is off to a great start this season. The Wildcats are 3-0 and won convincingly against No. 5 Kansas earlier this week, prompting a number of fans and players to declare that they're as good as an NBA squad. The idea sounds ridiculous, but the Philadelphia 76ers, largely a team comprised of young talent, are 0-11 this year. Many believe that UK would give the 76ers a game.

In fact, according to an ESPN SportsNation poll conducted, the majority of Americans actually believe Kentucky would prevail in a seven-game series.
