This photo shows you how little the national media really knows Kentucky basketball

I've seen this photo all over the internet (like here) and each and every time the individuals within it are misidentified as and  when we all know it's Eloy and MKG.  I'm sure it's no fault of the publications printing the photo but rather the photographer that shot it and labeled it but it still irks me.   After all, we are and everyone should know our players like we know our players. 🙂

On June 24, 2010, Kentucky had five players drafted in the first round of the NBA Draft. John Wall became the first Wildcat ever named the overall No. 1 pick when he was selected by the Washington Wizards.  DeMarcus Cousins was selected fifth by the Sacramento Kings, Patrick Patterson went 14th to the Houston Rockets, Eric Bledsoe went 18th to the Oklahoma City Thunder and Daniel Orton was picked 29th by the Orlando Magic.
