At the current rate Cal is going at, someday the entire NBA will be made up of UK players and in essence, every UK player he send to the NBA will put another UK out of work because there are only so many teams and so many spots.
Could other coaches say that Cal doesn't really care about his players?
This really worries me.
I'll hang up and listen.

some awful circular logic there. What's your alternative. Intentionally not put guys in the NBA, so they won't put other guys out of work? Of course, opposing coaches can say anything to try to attract players, but I'm pretty sure Cal's promise to put them in the NBA as lottery picks will continue to bring top recruits to UK, despite what other coaches may say.
Ummmm, if a coach is telling recruits not to come here because nearly every NBA team has a former UK player (at some point), then that coach is a terrible recruiter and we should send him a 'thank you' card for doing our recruiting for us. And one UK player jumping to the NBA does not necessarily equal another former UK player being fired. If MKG joins Wall at the Wizards or Cousins at the Kings, will Wall or Cousins be fired? Don't be silly. The only way a scenario like that arrives is if it's an older, non-producing player whose time has come. And even in that far-fetched, hypothetical instance, that is the choice of the GM, not Calipari.
So, the answer to your question is: no. This is in no way, shape, or form "something other coaches could use against us in recruiting".
Maybe, just maybe, this post was sarcastic...
It almost has a notjerrytipton flare. Minus the humor or obvious sarcasm.
What???? Tell me more of this sarcasm you speak of?
Tommy, look at the argument as a Liberal. "Go to UK and you put an American out of work. Go to my school (insert Duke, UNC, IU, or UConn, etc.) and you put a European, Israeli, or Asian out of work".
Any true patriot could see the "logic" of that argument.
