Calipari Wants the Cleveland Cavaliers to Draft Nerlens Noel No. 1
Mark Zerof-USA TODAY Sports

CLEVELAND, Ohio -- Kentucky coach John Calipari hopes the Cavaliers draft Wildcats center Nerlens Noel with the No. 1 pick in the NBA draft on June 27. It's not because it would be a feather in Calipari's cap. He had six players drafted off his roster last year, tying the record for one school, including No. 1 Anthony Davis and No. 2 Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, the first time two players from the same school have been taken at the top of the draft. There were five first-round picks in 2010 and seven players who have been taken in the top five, including top picks Davis, John Wall and Derrick Rose.
