It's going to be hard for more than a couple of those Kentucky guys to stand out statistically unless they start playing with two basketballs. That's what I never really understood about blue-chippers joining already loaded classes -- if your goal is to stand out in your freshman year and make yourself more appealing to the NBA, joining a bunch of other guys with the same goal seems counter productive.

Tell that to the Larry Johnson led unlv runnin rebels. Or Kentuckys draft class a couple of seasons ago.

Teams of players can stand out and demonstrate the ability to share the ball and play as a group.

That's what I thought until a few years ago. Remember when every starting player for Kentucky was drafted in the first round? They also had their freshmen backup center drafted as well.
