NBA Coach Says It’s “Absurd” To Think UK Could Beat A Pro Team

Former Maryland coach Gary Williams started it.  He told a Washington, DC radio station that he believe Kentucky could win a one-game matchup with the NBA’s Washington Wizards at Rupp Arena.

A current NBA coach thinks the ex-college coach is daffy.

Stan Van Gundy of the Orlando Magic — a man who never has a problem speaking his mind — said flatly yesterday:

“Look, it’s absurd.  I mean, people will say, ‘Oh, Kentucky, you know’s, got four NBA players.  Yeah, well, the other team’s got 13.

Could anything happen on a one-night thing?  I mean, I suppose, you have major upsets all the time.  So, maybe, but it’d be rare and in a series it’d be a joke.  It wouldn’t be close.  That’s just the way it is.  John Calipari’s got a lot of talent; he does not have 13 NBA players.  He just doesn’t.  And even if those guys all are, they’re all NBA rookies.  I mean, when has that ever been a success in the NBA?  So, no, they’re not going to win.”

Ah, but about that “you have major upsets all the time” comment?
