Is the timing bad?  Sure, but I’m pretty sure Jonathan Givony only releases these after Kentucky’s best players perform poorly.  Here’s a rundown of where this year’s Cats stand after less than a month of college basketball.

3.  Skal Labissiere. 

7.  Jamal Murray

20.  Isaiah Briscoe

42.  Tyler Ulis

44.  Marcus Lee

There’s still a long way to go but the complete list is pretty interesting, especially when you see an unbelievable phenomenon — a Rick Pitino player made the cut.

    This is great news! Now…can someone box out, get a rebound, or hit an outside shot? Because if we don’t, we’ll be the first team with 5 NBA players (6 if Alex get his head out of his..) to not make the Elite 8.

    I’m with Jiminy. I don’t CARE about the NBA!

    personally I hope ulis stays that far down in the draft, and briscoe stays that high. ulis with a crazy athletic team next year will be nuts.

    Complete and total nonsense that Skal is #3. He just isn’t there. If you want to draft on potential, that’s on you, but I would consider trading down and getting another player for my pick, and then get Skal late.

    Who knows? By the end, he may be the bees-knees, but he just isn’t a good enough player to take at three.

    I hope Skal gets that good by the end of the year. Right now he’s playing like a guy who will be here three years.

      Ben Simmons is going to decimate him. Let’s hope the rest of the team makes up the difference.

    This is Cal’s primary goal every year. Win the NBA draft. Hang another banner. Keep the twins in the game to showcase their “skills” while we get whacked.
