John Calipari keeps producing NBA stars and the NBA keeps paying them loads of money.
Kyle Tucker of SEC Country looks at all the money former Wildcats are making in the League and at the same time they are making Cal the Billion Dollar Man.
In eight seasons at Kentucky, Calipari already has 18 former players who’ve made (or are under contract to make) more than $10 million, including a dozen who have or will make $20 million-plus. Former No. 1 picks John Wall and Anthony Davis are guaranteed at least 427 million combined in their careers, and probably more.
Calipari has been talking about cracking a billion for a long time — he just tweeted about it last week — but he’s finally crossed that absurd threshold.

These figures just include NBA contracts.
I am sure it would be more if you add in the money players have made overseas.
