Top 50 Players of the UK-Calipari Era


Since taking over the reigns as Head Basketball Coach of University of Kentucky, its safe to say John Calipari has turned this program into an NBA factory. In the 11 years that he has been here he has reeled in some amazing talent! Some have been one-and-dones and others have been 2, 3, and even 4 year players!


I decided to sit down and actually take the time rank the top 50 players of the Calipari Era, subjectively of course. Before presenting the list, its important to know that National accolades and team accomplishments were weighed in and helped some guys significantly in their ranking. As I said, this list is very subjective and you could debate some players were better or even more important than others. But I feel comfortable with where I have them. Here we go!!
