I take a look at how former UK and John Calipari players performed in the 2013 NBA regular season.

For Coach Cal.com, I take a look at how the 20 former Kentucky, and 18 former John Calipari players performed in the NBA regular season. Here's a sneak-peak:

*Eric BledsoeLos Angeles Clippers
2012-13 stats – 76 games, 20.4 minutes per game, 8.5 points, 3.1 assists, 3.0 rebounds, 1.4 steals
Bledsoe displayed tremendous progress in his third year in the NBA, and played very well while replacing injured All-Star point guard Chris Paul. Bledsoe’s 3-point shooting, once an inconsistent part of his game, has blossomed as he made 39.7 percent of his shots from distance this season and 44.5 percent of his overall field-goal attempts. The Clippers, the No. 4 seed in the Western Conference, take on the Memphis Grizzlies in the first round of the NBA playoffs.

Keith BogansBrooklyn Nets
2012-13 stats — 74 games, 19.0 minutes per game, 4.2 points, 1.6 rebounds, 34.3 percent 3-point shooting
In his10th season in the league, Bogans remained an NBA commodity, both on the floor as a lockdown defender and in the locker room as a team leader. He also provided perimeter depth to the Nets, as his minutes per game increased as the season wore on. The No. 4 seed in the Eastern Conference, the Nets will battle Chicago in the opening round of the NBA playoffs.

*DeMarcus CousinsSacramento Kings
2012-13 stats — 75 games, 30.5 minutes per game, 17.1 points, 9.9 rebounds, 2.7 assists, 1.4 steals
At only 22 years old, Cousins is quickly becoming one of the best big men in the NBA. He posted 37 double-doubles this season, and in one 13-game stretch between Jan. 1 and Jan. 23, he posted 10 double-doubles. Cousins ended the season with a bang, posting season highs in both points (36) and rebounds (22) in the Kings’ 112-108 loss to the Clippers on Wednesday night.
