08:15 AM ET 04.18 | Few reload the way John Calipari can. Facing the reality of losing six players that could be NBA first-round draft picks, Kentucky might be destined to take a step backward next season. Don't count on it, Anthony Davis said Tuesday. When asked if UK could be as good next season as this past season, Davis said, "Most definitely. It's a great recruiting season." Nerlens Noel, the heir apparent as a shot-blocking presence, got validation from Davis. "A great shot blocker," said Davis, who set a Southeastern Conference record with 186 blocks this past season. "I think he's better than me." [Calipari] acknowledged how his team figures to be highly regarded next season.

Uh, no.

Nice try, though, at a graceful exit.

Better to get them already developed than have to develop them yourself. That's too much work. Instant society.

It's hard to knock the Calipari model now that he's won a title with it.

Ha Ha! too funny.

Colonel (ret.) created the 0-6 account to indulge in his acquired talent for pic posts. He informed us that the 0-6 account was toast. If indeed 0-6 was only suspended, that would be welcome news.

Agreed. He is one of the only reasons I return here day after day.

Unless you took a massive hit to the head, there is no way Noel is better Mr. Davis!!!!

Yea I have seen this new kid play on ESPN a few times and his timing and leaping ability isnt too far off from Davis, what separates them is the wing span and and guard like stealthiness of Davis. I didnt see that from the Noel kid.
