After Kentucky forward Julius Randle and guard James Young went in the first round of the NBA draft Friday night, the number of Kentucky players drafted under coach John Calipari bumped up to 19. However, ESPN said 18 and coach Cal was not happy about them being one off...


He's referring to Turkish star Enes Kanter, who spent a year in Lexington but was unable to play due to NCAA amateurism rules. ESPN isn’t counting Kanter, who went No. 3 to Utah in 2011, as a Kentucky draftee.

Why is that retarded? His sales pitch to these 5 star guys is "Play for me and you'll be in the NBA in 2 years." I wouldn't say he cares more about that than winning, but he sure as hell doesn't care about their education.

to say he cares more about draft picks than championships is plain retarded.
