    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.

    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.

    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.
