08:26 AM ET 06.29 | Anthony Davis and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist made some history Thursday night in Manhattan, which led their head coach to wonder how much better things could get. [Calipari] acknowledged how the draft served as yet another glowing statement in a phosphorescent year of UK achievement on the court (national championship) and off (3.2 grade-point average in the spring semester). "I don't know what else you can add to our recruiting," he said. "I just want to know, 'How did you beat us on a kid?'" Rather than Green Room or Blue Room, Calipari suggested the fitting color be gold. "I just told you three years ago, 'Let's make this the gold standard,'" Calipari said. ... "In three years, we'll have 10 percent of the league," Calipari said with a touch of wonder.
