For those that care... SEC players drafted in the NBA Draft 2011

Enes Kanter went at #3 to Utah. Even though he never set foot on the court at Kentucky I'm going to count him.

Brandon Knight went to the Pistons at #8. He actually played for the Wildcats.

Tobia Harris went to the Wizards at #18. I guess Bruce Pearl produced something last year.

Trey Thompkins and Travis Leslie went to the Clippers at #37 and #47. Those UGA dawgs can hold each other's hand in the LBC.

Chandler Parsons went to the Rockets at #38. Not sure if he got what it takes to make the team, but good luck to the former Gator.

Vernon Macklin rounds out the SEC in the NBA draft at #52 to the Pistons. Another Gator.

Say what you will about John Calipari... they guy has an eye (or other things) for NBA talent. The players he's coached at Memphis and Kentucky the past 5 years have made an impact on the NBA.

It's not like Calipari has been taking a chance on guys. The guys he signs are known by everybody to be top prospects. Determining the top prospects in basketball is very easy because of all the AAU programs. The question is, how is he able to get them all signed and eligible.

He has to make a good offer for them to sign.
