NBA Recruiting is in full-swing right now and John Calipari has positioned the Wildcats well once again. Former Cat Demarcus Cousins announced that he would be joining the Golden State Warriors as a grad transfer for $5.3 million which will allow him to get a nicer studio apartment in the Bay Area. While the addition of Cousins strengthens the Warriors position in the west, the NBA’s Eastern Conference is wide open. Kentucky, in addition to being a pre-season top five team in College Basketball, has also been predicted to finish in the playoff picture in the East.
Kentucky is positioned best of all the collegiate teams to finish in the Eastern Conference Playoff picture, their only competition coming from Duke who are not projected highly right now as it will be difficult for them to get under the NBA’s salary cap.
The Cats may not have a realistic chance of finishing at the top of the conference as Boston and Philadelphia both have very good, young teams, however, PJ Washington and EJ Montgomery pair up favorably with the Chicago Bulls frontcourt of Tall White Guy (interchangeable) and a guy no one remembers from the PAC-12 and Keldon Johnson and Quade Green are surely favorites over the Brooklyn Nets backcourt of that guy from Ohio State and probably a guy with a beard or something.
