He’s had at least 1 or more player on every single team in the NBA.

Not only have all these players been in the NBA or are still playing... but some have had some pretty amazing careers. You might be familiar with Devin Bookers 70pt game against the Boston Celtics and Anthony Davis’s double double season as in one game he had 53pts, 18rebs, and 5blks against the Phoenix Suns. Also some of these Wildcats in the list above have had some great playoff runs as Eric Bledsoe did this past year with the Bucks and Jodie Meeks getting his first NBA Championship ring with the Toronto Raptors. These Wildcats have been some pretty special players and athletes but not without the help of John Calipari to get them NBA ready for their careers with the right coaching, strength and conditioning, and giving them the right mindset to succeed beyond college.
