Kentucky’s six incoming freshmen announced their new jersey numbers yesterday and a couple of them will inherit greatness once they wear it for the first time.
In case you missed it, here are the digits for the new Wildcats:
Now I’ll ask you: Who is your all-time favorite to wear each of those numbers?
De’Aaron Fox may already stake claim on his number. He shares it with Enes Kanter, who never played; and Marcus Lee, who only wore it on the blue alternate uni in 2015-16.
Sacha Killeya-Jones is the fourth in line to wear No. 1 in consecutive years. A Calipari player has worn the No. 1 in all but one season: the NIT year.
Bam Adebayo has the difficult task of following Tyler Ulis. I think we all know how this poll will go.
Meanwhile, Malik Monk has a long list of former No. 5s before him.
Brad Calipari will share a number with an NBA head coach still in this year’s playoffs.
And Wenyen Gabriel is the first to wear No. 32 since Brian Long.
