Photos: John Calipari Has Played Host To Many Former Wildcats In Recent Days

No college basketball coach is better at getting their players to the NBA than John Calipari. The Kentucky coach, since 2010, has had 17 players drafted, with 13 of those athletes being picked in the first round. 

Recently, some of those former players have come to visit Calipari in Lexington. The 55-year-old coach could likely make an NBA contender with just his former stars.

Of all my guys, maybe no one made more strides from the day he walked on campus to the day he left than @EBled2.

An NBA team of former Wildcats could look like this: 

PG-John Wall, SG-Eric Bledsoe, SF-Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, PF-Demarcus Cousins, C-Anthony Davis. 

That's a certain playoff team, and a potential NBA title contender.
