With all the Bolden drama over, it’s time to turn our sights to the NBA, where Kentucky continues to prove it’s not only the most successful college program at putting kids in the league, but those kids are often times the most successful. Karl Towns, Devin Booker, and Willie Cauley-Stein all made the NBA All-Rookie Teams this afternoon, with Karl and Devin named to the First Team and Willie the Second:
