"They say the rich get richer. That is certainly true for the 2013 Kentucky recruiting class which added the top power forward in the country Julius Randle."

don't do this to us Jeff.
So a typical all freshman lineup would be
I think it would go
SF- James Young
Randle may excel on the wing but that lineup would clog the lane a little too much and also I don't know if you'd want Randle guarding wings.
Yes, that will be the more likely lineup, but it didn't lend itself to the joke.
Lee can't be very happy today.
Wonder how many in this class leaves after next year. Kentucky could be setting them up for some wild cycles.
What a NC followed by a first round NIT loss every two years? I'll take it.
I'm going to be a fan of Kentucky next year. Seen a lot of these guys play HS ball over the last two years.
Let's see how they mesh. That great 2010 Kentucky team didn't win it all, and they had 3 lottery picks and 2 other 1st rounders.
Not saying they'll win it all, but I watched a lot of the Harrison twins and Julius in HS so I'll be pulling for them and will enjoy watching them play at the next level.
Can a lot of this thinking be attributed to LeBron James' "Superfriends" mentality to win?
Sooner or later these kids will figure out that limited minutes stifles your growth as a player.
All of these guys would make it into NBA regardless of which team they played for.
To mesh as a team all the working parts have to work in harmony.
Some guys need the ball to succeed and that's tough when you have only one ball and six guys calling for it.
Also sooner or later a pecking order is established where someone is disappointed that he no longer takes the shot when the game is on the line.
No, but they were very good and meshed very well. I don't think anyone gets high profile kids to buy in on defense better than Cal.
So they messed well that only means despite that they still couldn't win it. Calapari want's an undefeated team which is his final goal. Reminds me of UNLV when they had all their guys back after winning the NC the year before. They dominated everyone and had no close games until they played Duke who was the first team to keep with them under four minutes and UNLV couldn't handle it. There are a lot of things that go into winning an NC and those in Kentucky should know this very well. In the tournament the best team doesn't always win just the hottest.
