While the NBA universe revolves around superteams like the Golden State Warriors and the Cleveland Cavaliers and their All-Star littered rosters, Kentucky Wildcats coach John Calipari says he has a formula a -- at least a theoretical one -- to top them all and take the NBA title.

In a recent interview with Bleacher Report, Calipari said beating those teams would be simple: Put together a Mount Rushmore of former Kentucky players and let them go to work.

“Oh yeah,” Calipari said when asked if a team of ex-Kentucky players would win the NBA championship. “But it could never happen, and it would have to be hypothetical, because they’d all have to be, what, eight or nine of them, max players, and you can’t pay them that. Let’s say this: If they were all max players and they were all making their money, oh, you could win a title. There’d be nothing except, ‘Let me fit into this.’ But you couldn’t do it. You could have maybe two or three max players and the rest would have to take less.”

Picking players to include could get tricky. Since taking over in Lexington in 2009, the Wildcats have been an NBA talent factory. Calipari has a website -- coachcal.com -- which prominently features a tracker of lottery picks who have played under him since 2010. Kentucky ranks No. 1 in the country with 13 NBA players during that span with the likes of John Wall, Anthony Davis and DeMarcus Cousins among the talented players who have come and gone under Calipari’s watch, and there are likely two or three more to be selected after this season. But with all the options, he knows who he’d tab as his starters.
