Rajon Rondo is going to run with a Kentucky Wildcat alumni all-star team:

On August 15, Calipari's two teams will collide at Rupp Arena, according to tweets from the head coach. Team Dominican Republic will face Team Kentucky, which will be made up of eight of the program's former stars. Calipari will coach the national team while Sam Bowie and Joe B. Hall will lead the Kentucky alum.

Team Dominican Republic will include NBA players Al Horford, Charlie Villanueva and Francisco Garcia.

Team Kentucky will include John Wall, Rajon Rondo, Tayshaun Prince, DeMarcus Cousins, Jodie Meeks, Nazr Mohammed, Eric Bledsoe and Keith Bogans.

All former Kentucky players have been invited to the event, where they will be honored for their contributions to the program.

Rondo and Wall could be the quickest backcourt of all-time.

    Fuckin’ A! What a fun time to be a Wildcat!
    And yes, I’d love to see Walker play for that team. Great nostalgia. If Tony Delk hadn’t just been hired by Texas A&M, he’d probably be coaching with Calipari.
    Interesting dynamic here. Nazr’s name has come up a free agent target, and here’s Rondo’s chance to start building a repoire. Same for Prince, but I can’t remember if he’s a FA.

    Just looked it up. Prince is a FA. Hope Rondo chats it up with him too.
