Eric Bledsoe believes the Kentucky Wildcats could beat the Philadelphia 76ers

Published Add your comment

The Philadelphia 76ers are unanimously considered the worst team in the NBA right now, they currently sit at 0-10 on the season and the only headlines surrounding the ball club is their suspected 'tanking'.

The nature of their losses recently have been so dramatic they are being questioned about their level of professionalism, in their 123-70 Loss to the Dallas Mavericks they were down by 44 points at half time, the Mavericks first half output of 73 points would have won them the game.

The embarrassment for Philly is reaching such heights that the genuine question has been posed whether they would lose to the nations top college team.

The deep and talented Kentucky Wildcats were ranked the top team in the nation, a great expectation sat with this young team as they prepared to face another powerhouse college in the Kansas Jayhawks on Tuesday night.

In a nationally televised game, the Wildcats ripped apart their opposition and hinted at future greatness when they dismantled the Jayhawks 72-40 in the Champions Classic.

Bledsoe taking the Wildcats

The Wildcats have been impressive and the 76ers have been dreadful, it didn't take long before serious questions were asked as to whether the college players could really beat the professional athletes in a seven-game series.

However Kentucky head coach John Calipari was quick to dismiss the notion that his team could beat an NBA team:

His position was frankly opposed by a former Kentucky Wildcat and Suns point guard Eric Bledsoe.

Bledsoe flat out disagrees with Calipari's position and should be careful on his next trip to Philadelphia after he conceded how bad the 76ers currently are.

The point guard appeared on SiriusXM's The Starting Lineup with Brian Geltzeiler and Malik Rose and was asked who would win a seven game series between Kentucky and Philadelphia and in how many games.

"I'd definitely take the Kentucky Wildcats, I think Philly would probably get, maybe one game."

The hosts quickly reminded Bledsoe that he would now become the number one target in Philadelphia but he responded by reiterating the fact he was sticking with his alumni.

Rather disrespectful to the professional players on the 76ers roster who are now believed to be less talented than some teenagers in college.

We'll be sure to keep an eye out for when the Phoenix Suns and Eric Bledsoe travel to Philadelphia to take on the 76ers, the crowd will certainly let the point guard know how they feel about his comments.
