Former Kentucky standout Devin Booker is back in Lexington this weekend and spent Saturday conducting a youth camp at UK.
Booker was part of the 2014-15 team that started 38-0 before losing to Wisconsin in the Final Four.
That team had Karl-Anthony Towns, the NBA rookie of the year, and Trey Lyles, another first-round draft pick like Booker, in its freshman class. So was Tyler Ulis, the 34th pick in this year’s draft.
Willie Cauley-Stein was also a lottery pick off that Final Four team and Aaron Harrison, Andrew Harrison and Dakari Johnson, who could all be in the NBA this year, were also on that team.
So how good was that team?
“Obviously, the 2012 (UK) team has the national championship, something that we wish we would have had, but I always say we were the most talented team,” Booker said.
But here’s the part I liked best and showed that Booker gets what is important.
“I always say we were the most talented team in college basketball history. Not the best team, because the best teams win championships, but the most talented team,” Booker said.
Put that way, it’s hard to argue against Booker’s logic.
