We can legitimately thank John Calipari for this amazing Suns' backcourt

Four? Four former Kentucky Wildcats?!

Anthony Gruppuso-USA TODAY Sports

You don't see this everyday. Well, unless it's Kentucky: the school that catapults talent into the NBA on a yearly basis.


"I'd say just the mindset that we all have, the same goals and aspirations of just being a great player in this league," Booker says of the Suns quartet. "That's why we chose Kentucky."

There is no striking similarity on or off the court between the NBA's Kentucky alumni. The Suns' former Wildcats all happen to be guards, but 16 other representatives dot the NBA, including All-Star big men DeMarcus Cousins (Sacramento) and Anthony Davis (New Orlenas).

Thank you, Cal.
