Kentucky & 76ersGetty Images

On a Wednesday SiriusXM NBA Radio appearance, Phoenix Suns guard and former Kentucky Wildcat Eric Bledsoe said his school -- fresh off a 72-40 dismantling of the fifth-ranked Kansas Jayhawks -- would beat the 0-11 Philadelphia 76ers in a seven-game series.

"I'm definitely taking Kentucky," Bledsoe said when presented with the scenario. "I think Philly would probably get maybe one game."

Bold statement. Philadelphia indeed is terrible and Kentucky appears to be great. But would a cast of current NBA players really lose to future ones?

(Side note worth mentioning: The Suns play at Philadelphia on Friday.)
