It’s a topic we discussed on the radio a few weeks ago and now Athlon Sports agrees. If UK competed in the Olympics, it would win the silver medal in men’s basketball competition. Just imagine a starting lineup of Rajon Rondo, John Wall, Tayshaun Prince, Anthony Davis and DeMarcus Cousins, with Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, Jodie Meeks, Patrick Patterson and others coming off the bench.
Athlon even goes as far to break down the coaching staff:
Managing Director — Pat Riley
Head Coach — John Calipari
Assistant Coach — Dan Issel
Assistant Coach — Travis Ford
Student Assistant — Enes Kanter
(I hope the “student assistant” isn’t a joke.)
What do you think? Could an All Cats Everything Olympic team beat Argentina and Spain???
