“Too many egos.”

“Not enough minutes.”

“A disaster waiting to happen.”

Those are some of the criticisms Kentucky and Coach Calipari received at the beginning of the 2014-2015 season after deciding to run a platoon system.

Despite having the opportunity to play more minutes at other schools, UK’s incoming freshmen and upperclassmen chose to instead come to UK with a different goal in mind: winning a national championship.

At other programs, a platoon system might tear individual players and coaches apart, but the brotherhood all the Wildcats share allows the team to play better as a whole.
