So, they are probably going to lose half their roster, what ever will they do next???

ESPN.com's list of Kentucky Recruits- #2 ranked class
ESPN.com's list of North Carolina Recruits- #5 ranked class


They probably are going to lose their top 4 maybe even 5 or 6 players from this years talent riddled, McDonald's All-American, NBA first round pick, NBA probably lottery pick and may even have the #1 pick in the draft on their roster. What other teams could even imagine having  players that don't even start drafted.....but not just drafted, drafted in the first round.....but not just drafted in the first round, drafted in the LOTTERY OF THE BEST LEAGUE IN THE WORLD, THE NBA LOTTERY. FOR A GUY WHO COULDN'T CRACK THE STARTING LINEUP FOR HIS  COLLEGE TEAM TO MILLIONAIRE BALLER GUARDING LEBRON JAMES, DERRICK ROSE OR KEVIN DURANT, MAYBE ENDING UP ON BLAKE GRIFFIN'S LIST OF CONFIRMED KILLS IN A FEW MONTHS, SPLASHED ACROSS POSTERS, YOU-TUBE AND LITTLE KIDS BEDROOMS WALLS BEFORE YOU KNOW IT.


WHO ARE WE EVEN TALKING ABOUT HERE? What team fits this crazy mold in today's 1 and done world? A world where even Duke, GASP, yes even the impeccable gold standard of men's college basketball has now dipped into the crazy pool of 1 year wonders and had not only last years #1 overall pick Kyrie Irving go to the Cavs when he didn't even play for the majority of the season after an injury but #1 recruit, star freshmen this year Austin Rivers who declared for the draft after winning a litany of personal accolades and freshmen records/awards during his first year in college ball..


Well, the amazing thing about all of this......we actually have 2 different teams, vastly different in ways, yet eerily similar in others that can claim to boast rosters and recruits that give them chances to continue the record setting pipeline they continue to send to THE LEAGUE.  This years draft could include an incredible 8-10 players from these 2 schools alone. Think about THAT.  Using ESPN.com mock draft generator, I ended up with 6 players from UNC and Kentucky in the lottery all 3 times I ran the simulation, INSANE.
