KSTV conducts a 2010 NBA Draft redo

06/04/2014 04:04 PM

2010 was a record year for Kentucky in the NBA Draft. Following John Calipari’s first season in Lexington, UK had five players taken in the first round — the most ever by one team. That year, John Wall was selected #1 overall to the Washington Wizards, DeMarcus Cousins was taken 5th to the Sacramento Kings, Patrick Patterson went 14th, Eric Bledsoe 18th, and Daniel Orton 29th.

But WHAT IF… that 2010 draft was redone knowing everything known now?

Would John Wall still go #1? Where would DeMarcus Cousins be taken? Would Eric Bledsoe crack the top-5?

In a draft where Ekpe Udoh went 6th overall while Paul George went 10th, Jordan Crawford went 27th, and Lance Stephenson went 40th. It appears things might have gone a little differently.

Thomas Beisner and Mark Krebs break out their top-5 and discuss whether or not the Kentucky guys have lived up to the hype so far.
