The Kentucky Wildcats frontcourt in New Orleans is stuff of video game proportions

The trade of DeMarcus Cousins to the New Orleans Pelicans is a dream come true for Kentucky Wildcats fans.

NBA: New Orleans Pelicans at Sacramento Kings Kelley L Cox-USA TODAY Sports

As you know by now, the Sacramento Kings traded DeMarcus Cousins to the New Orleans Pelicans, teaming him with former Kentucky Wildcats great Anthony Davis.

The move has almost broken Twitter as sports writers are already debating the historical significance of the deal.

The trade brings two of the best men in the NBA to the same front court and gives us a combination of Davis and Cousins that would be hard to recreate in a video game. Cousins, for one, is definitely playing the best ball of his career.

Like most fans, there was plenty of reaction from the NBA players. Some just had a one-word stunned reply.

Others took it a step further and pointed out that this trade would likely be vetoed even in the world of video games.

Twitter being what it is, we quickly got a reply as to whether or not the trade would have been allowed in the world of video games GM's. The answer was a big fat NYET.

Kentucky Wildcats basketball fans are celebrating the move as it unites two players from the 2012 championship team (Davis, Terrence Jones) with one of the more popular players of the Calipari era in Cousins. And make no mistake, it's going to be fun to watch this team play.

At this point, the Hornets need to go full Kentucky and find a former Wildcat point guard to runs the show. This means you, John Wall.

As a long suffering Orlando Magic fan, I can't help but be a little jealous about the deal. Apparently, my Magic were in the conversation at one point but balked on the deal. Perhaps they are allergic to winning.
