The amount of talent Kentucky head basketball coach John Calipari brings through his program is no mystery, so it shouldn’t surprise you that NBA’s All-Star Weekend was packed full of former Wildcats.
And when Karl-Anthony Towns won the Taco Bell Skills Challenge, it seemed like former Kentucky stars–DeMarcus Cousins, Anthony Davis, Devin Booker–came from all directions to celebrate on the court with Towns. Calipari took to Twitter Sunday afternoon to explain how emotional he got watching it all unfold. It was pretty cool.

It always great to see players hold onto a bond far beyond their collegiate careers.
