WATCH: Relive all 35 NBA Draft picks of the Calipari Era

by:Mrs. Tyler Thompson06/20/19


Tonight, three more Kentucky Wildcats will hear their names called at the NBA Draft, bringing the total number of players drafted in the John Calipari Era to 38. That is an astounding number that speaks to how much Calipari has not only changed the culture in Lexington, but college basketball as a whole.

Before the main event, let’s look back at each player’s big moment. I found every clip except for one: DeAndre Liggins, the No. 53 pick in the 2011 NBA Draft. For some reason, footage of his selection no longer exists.

I can’t wait to update this tomorrow.
