"I see myself being one of the greatest players to ever play the game of basketball," Sharpe said, according to James Boyd of the Indianapolis Star. "Just playing at the highest level, just really getting after it and competing. One of my goals coming in as a rookie is just win Rookie of the Year. And then also (become an) All-Star and, later on, Hall of Fame."

Sharpe did not play for Kentucky for unknown reasons, but the 19-year-old Canadian claimed he had no regrets.

"Everything happens for a reason, so I really don't regret (not) playing," Sharpe said. "I'm working out for NBA teams now, so I guess I did something right."

In the 2022 NBA Draft, Sharpe is expected to be a lottery pick. He's already worked out for the Orlando Magic, Oklahoma City Thunder, Detroit Pistons, Portland Trail Blazers, and Charlotte Hornets, according to him.

Sharpe's potential profile, along with Calipari's track record of developing NBA talent, might persuade a team to pick him in the lottery. The 6’5” shooting guard has already worked out for several lottery teams, including the Blazers (No. 7 pick), Spurs (No. 9), Hornets (No. 13) and Pelicans (No. 8).
