NBA College Alumni Tournament: Kentucky Would Probably Meet Texas in the Finals, or Maybe UCLA or Duke

We came up with a hypothetical tournament: What if college alumni who are current NBA players got together? Obviously Kentucky would be the heavy favorite because John Calipari has turned Lexington into an NBA factory. But a couple schools would definitely give the Wildcats a run, led by Kevin Durant and Texas.
