Fulfilling The Prophecy: Kentucky’s Title-Winning Starting Five Going Pro

In news that should surprise no one, every member of the University of Kentucky’s starting five will look to join the NBA ranks next season. The move was announced in a Tuesday night press conference in Lexington, Kentucky, where the players – Freshmen Anthony Davis, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist and Marquis Teague, and sophomores Terrence Jones and Doron Lamb – appeared beside head basketball coach John Calipari and gave their intentions. Realistically, all five of these players will be first-round selections and backup guard Darius Miller will also probably find a home in the NBA. That’s six future NBA players hailing from last year’s national champions. It kind of goes without saying, but thank god Coach Cal knows how to recruit.
