WATCH: Kentucky Basketball’s 2019 NBA Draft Recap

Now that we’re a few days removed from the NBA Draft, the folks behind the Kentucky Men’s Basketball Twitter account have provided us with a nice recap of the entire night. From Coach Cal heading to New York on his private plane, through each of the draft picks, and ending with Cal’s post-draft comments, this video is a perfect behind the scenes look at what PJ Washington, Tyler Herro, and Keldon Johnson went through on Thursday night.

People wonder why Coach Cal makes such a big deal about the NBA Draft and there’s one specific quote that sticks out as showing that John Calipari truly understands how life changing draft night is for these families.

Seeing Chris Herro cry, seeing PJ’s mom, and then seeing Keldon’s mom and dad hug like, ‘He’s made it’. I mean, who wouldn’t enjoy that?

For all the keyboard warriors out there who want to rip on Calipari for “caring about the draft too much”, if you don’t see how big of a deal it is for the personal lives of those kids, I honestly feel bad for you.

Who wants to be next?

    I think most agree that getting players into the league is important … but we also agree it is not THE most important thing.
