Brown, who is in New Orleans watching the teams of his former staff members John Calipari and Bill Self, reportedly told SI’s Tim Layden that Kentucky could beat half the teams in the NBA.
Larry Brown just told me: ”I disagree w/Van Gundy that Kentucky couldn’t beat an NBA team. I think they could beat about 15 NBA teams.”

Brown must have been impressed with the Wildcats’ performance against Louisville to say something like that. I wouldn’t go as far as Magic coach Stan Van Gundy who said the notion that Kentucky could beat an NBA team is “absurd,” but I’ll repeat that oddsmakers would have the Wizards as a 30-point favorite over the Cats in a game. Kentucky might have a shot at beating the worst teams, but that’s unlikely. Don’t tell that to Brown, however.Google+
