The 2012 NBA Draft was essentially a long infomercial promoting Kentucky basketball. The school set two records on draft day, as Anthony Davis and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist became the first set of teammates to be selected first and second overall in NBA draft history. In addition, six Kentucky players were drafted, setting a record for total draftees.

In other words, it was a wildly successful event for each Wildcat involved, and it should help John Calipari in his future recruiting with the 2013 and 2014 classes...as if he needs any more help recruiting the nation's best talent.

The following slides detail the fit of each player with their respective team and discusses how each UK draftee can help their team given a chance to play. Let me know your opinions in the comment section!
