Once again, where to start?
How about with some numbers?
Kentucky is losing 93 percent of its scoring, 89 percent of its rebounding, 94 percent of its assists, 93 percent of its blocks and 94 percent of its steals.
It's not just about the stats, though.
Anthony Davis was arguably one of the most dominant college basketballs player ever. You aren't replacing that, no matter how awesome the flat top. Moving on.
Michael Kidd-Gilchrist didn't always light up the stat sheet, but he was as energetic and hard-working as he was talented. He did whatever it took to win, and it never seemed like he was a freshman.
Terrence Jones had a quietly dominant defensive season, but he also brought a unique offensive game. He could dribble like a guard, score from the inside and step outside to hit the three-ball.
Marquis Teague was the engine that ran everything, and he only got better as the season went on.
Doron Lamb was the lights out shooter you couldn't leave alone.
Darius Miller was the veteran leader who came off the bench, calmed the young guys down when need-be and constantly hit big shots. He was the ideal glue player that every national championship team needs.
It's not just that fact that Calipari is losing an insane amount of NBA talent. It's the fact that every single player knew his role, played it to perfection and worked brilliantly with one another. Not only are the stats gone, but the team chemistry must start back at square one.
