Kentucky Wildcats head coach John Calipari and Philadelphia 76ers general manager Sam Hinkie have completely different philosophies for constructing their teams.
Kentucky's roster is so talented that Calipari is splitting playing time between two separate five-man units; Hinkie, on the other hand, has done everything in his power not to acquire good players. Hinkie is actively trying to make the Sixers bad, and he's succeeding.
So, who would win if Calipari's Super Team played Hinkie's Awful Squad?
There's no way this game ever happens, but Jeff Sherman from the Westgate sports book in Las Vegas put a spread on the game anyway.
if the Philadelphia 76ers (NBA) played the Kentucky Wildcats (college basketball) under NBA rules we would put 76ers as 17 point favorites— Jeff Sherman (@golfodds) November 20, 2014
Because of the possibility one of teams gets embarassed, NBA commissioner would never let this game be played. But at least we know he supports being able to bet on it.
