Those Who (Don’t) Stay

Here’s a scary thought: Anthony Davis, one of the top players in the NBA, would be a college senior this season. If players were forced to stay in school for four years, what would this season look like? Taking into account transfers (but not future injuries) and acknowledging that many of these players would have chosen other schools, here is a potential Final Four.

Kentucky Wildcats

Starters: Andrew Harrison (So.), Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (Sr.), Julius Randle (So.), Anthony Davis (Sr.), Nerlens Noel (Jr.)

Key reserves: Willie Cauley-Stein (Jr.), Marquis Teague (Sr.), James Young (So.), Alex Poythress (Jr.), Dakari Johnson (So.), Karl-Anthony Towns (Fr.), Archie Goodwin (Jr.), Aaron Harrison (So.), Devin Booker (Fr.), Trey Lyles (Fr.), Marcus Lee (So.), Tyler Ulis (Fr.)
