Anthony Davis and the Kentucky Wildcats: Five NBA Teams They Could Beat Today

You're a fan of an NBA team. What if I told you that your starting five next year would consist of five former first-round draft picks, and that three of them would be lottery selections?

Even better, that two of them would be top-three selections?

You would feel pretty good, I bet.

What I've just described is no NBA team—but the college national champion Kentucky Wildcats. 

Anthony Davis and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist project to go No. 1 and No. 3 respectively.  Fellow big man Terrence Jones is a possible lottery selection in the middle of the round, and the backcourt of Doron Lamb and Marquis Teague should both be selected towards the end.

There is even a chance that senior SF Darius Miller, a former starter, might also get selected in the first round.

The Wildcats are that good.

Now let's get back to our fictional scenario. You are a fan of an NBA team. Instead of having the five first rounders, three lottery picks, and two top-three selections on your team, your team will be playing them in a one-game playoff.

On the line: nothing but bragging rights.

I bet there are some NBA fans who are glad a matchup between their favorite team and the Wildcats would never actually happen.

Here are five teams whose fans should be happy that a game like this could only exist in their nightmares.
