The starting 5 members of the NCAA champion Kentucky Wildcats are ready to get at the money. The Wildcats -- freshmen Anthony Davis, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist and Marquis Teague, and sophomores Terrence Jones and Doron Lamb -- have declared for the NBA draft.
The teammates made their announcement during a nationally televised news conference Tuesday night. "We made it work," Jones said, according to the Associated Press. "We all wanted to be there and do it together like we've done everything else together."
The men were not shy about revealing their eagerness to begin enjoying the perks of a baller lifestyle -- which includes gold diggers and potential baby mamas.
"That's right, I am going to be rich," Davis said. "You've just got to manage your money well. Good thing is I like math. So I should be fine."
Kidd-Gilchrist appeared emotional when he said his mother, Cindy Richardson, wanted him to return to school.
"I want to spoil my mom. I think I'm going to spoil my mom to death. That's one thing I'm looking forward to," said Kidd-Gilchrist, who plans to buy her a watch for starters. "I'm ready, I think. I'm ready for anything that comes my way now."
