John Calipari has coached some great basketball teams over the years, but could the 2013-14 Kentucky Wildcats be his best one yet?

Well, before everyone gets too carried away–it’s hard not to with this team–just relax. On paper this is probably Calipari’s most talented team. That is hard to argue against.

Five five-stars, one four-star and two three-stars will be joining. Three players joining are ranked No. 1 for their position in the 2013 recruiting class. Five players joining are ranked in the top 10 in the 2013 recruiting class, according to ESPN. So, this team definitely has its fair share of talent to say the least.

However, this team has done nothing yet. Once it wins a national championship then we can start talking.

More than likely, Kentucky will enter the season by being ranked in the top 3 and possibly No. 1 overall. More than likely, it will be considered as one of the best teams all season long. More than likely, it will make the NCAA tournament.

This team really is too talented not to succeed. Who knows if it will be the best Calipari coached team yet, but I am sure people will be talking about that all season long.

If the Wildcats can get through their brutal non-conference schedule untouched, people could be arguing about this team being the best one ever. With that in mind, they will play Louisville, North Carolina and Michigan State in the upcoming season. All three of those teams should enter the season by being ranked in the top 10.

Kentucky is probably going to be a great team all season long. That tends to happen when the best recruiting class of all time is set to join a team. However, Calipari has coached some great teams to say the least. Could this be his best team yet? Possibly, but we are going to have to wait and see how the season actually plays out before we can discuss that further.
