I’d agree that the 96 Kentucky team is the best of the last 30 years or so.

The Kentucky team with Anthony Davis was pretty good too

These lists are so dumb. Just like the greatest college football players of all time list. ALL great teams from the 2010s would beat these dinasours

You can make an argument for 2011-2012 Kentucky

Duke '91-'92 (34-2; wire-to-wire #1) was better than '90-'91 (32-7; second round loss in ACC tourney).

That UNLV team would've beaten that Duke team. UNLV lost key players and didn't really gain anyone. The depth and bigs weren't as good in 90-91. Duke gained Grant Hill among others. And they still should've won. If the 2 90-91 teams played a 3, 5 or 7 game series, UNLV wins. They just lost that night. The 89-90 team was better particularly at tourney time. They had found their groove by then.

1990-91 Duke’s better than 1991-92? Hard to believe considering how indomitable that team was. Moreover, 1981-82 North Carolina might not have been the greatest UNC team of that era, 1983-84 might’ve constituted the most stacked UNC team in history. All things considered, the 2012 Kentucky team was the greatest I’ve ever seen in my life, just tremendous and stacked.

Always thought the 1973 Bruins were superior to 1972, their zenith as a team and dynasty was their demolition of Memphis State in the title game behind Walton’s record 44 points next to what the 1968 team did to Houston in the 1968 semifinal to avenge their Game of the Century loss in the Astrodome with a weakened Kareem.

I’d throw 83-84 Georgetown in there somewhere. They made it to 3 straight NCAA Finals, which is no easy feat.

I’ll also throw 2014-2015 Kentucky into the mix. I think it’s kind of dumb we ignore teams because they didn’t win a title, especially in a sport like CBB where the tournament format lends itself to upsets and the best team doesn’t always win it all. That Kentucky team was 38-1, was obliterating everyone, and a roster full of NBA players (9 guys who spent time in the NBA). They lost in the final 4 I think? To a very good Wisconsin team, so it’s not like their 1 loss was unforgivable. I’m pretty sure Vegas was giving out almost even odds on taking the field against UK before the tourney began - which is basically unheard of and shows how good that team was.

I'm going to be a bit of a homer and throw out the '07 Florida Gators. The only team to win back to back national titles with the same starting 5, think they deserve a mention.

1996 UK and 1990 UNLV are too low.

ETA: I'd probably put 1996 UK at #1. The only team to put up any sort of a fight against them in the tournament was UMass, and that UMass team was the best team John Calipari has ever coached.

Yes. 90-91 UNLV would have beaten that Duke team 8 or 9 games out of 10.

The Final Four game just happened to be the one off.

There should be at least two more UCLA Wooden teams on the list. I know it would make it repetitive, but Wooden era UCLA was full of loaded, dominant teams.

The Fab Five coulda run at least half those teams off the court. Not saying they belong on the list, just that the list is kinda lame....
