Why do you have Jajuan

Why do you have Jajuan Johnson at center when he plays PF and SF and I don't know if Sullinger will be that great in his first season alongside Dallas Lauderdale. Other than that I really like the predictions.

I would think Johnson plays C

I would think Johnson plays C next year. Johnson saw no time at SF either last year in any game I can remember.

And you think DALLAS LAUDERDALE is going to take meaningful rebounds or points from Jared Sullinger? He couldn't even take those stats from Evan Turner, and Turner played PG last year. Imagine what Sullinger will do playing on the low block.

Do you know who Dallas

Do you know who Dallas Lauderdale is? He averaged 5.2 rebounds and 2.1 blocks a game. Those aren't outstanding numbers but I think he will take some blocks and rebounds away from sullinger but he won't take any points away from him.

I think Sullinger will be a great player next year on both ends of the floor and I agree Lauderdale sucks on offense but he is a defensive stopper.

^^ Well who doesn't play with another big who takes rebounds away. Dallas Lauderdale is not a threat to affect Sullinger's stats. Demarcus Cousins averaged 10 boards a game playing beside Patrick Patterson.

He'll take blocks, but

He'll take blocks, but Sullinger is no shot-blocker.

And think about it. David Lighty Jr. was the PF last season, and he's a true SG. And he only pulled down 5 rpg? He's not a very good rebounder believe me. All he does is block shots and defend. Sullinger should have no problem hovering around 10 rpg next season.

I don't know if Jones will

I don't know if Jones will put up AA numbers. He could though. Definitely has the potential to.

Corey Fisher is too wild. He's not better than any of the guards I have listed up there IMO.

I doubt English will be an All-American next year, he's more like All-Conference to me.

Nice list Iggy. Kemba is

Nice list Iggy. Kemba is really gonna have to step his game up to be an All-American especially with all the great guards in college basketball. He'll have to be the unquestioned leader of that team, as he'll now be an upperclassmen and the other younger players on that team (10 frosh and soph) will look to him for leadership and guidance. He needs to play poised and under control as the past great uconn pgs have, and not all wild and unpredictable as he did many times last year, his 1st as a starter. I'm really expecting big things from Kemba, and if he improves the way he should, he surely can be an All-American.

Some other things on your list, I see u went out on a limb (not a huge one, but one nonetheless) with putting Sully on the 1st team, guess you're, as we all are, expecting big things outta him. But you figure there's not even that many other big guys out there really, so I see your reasoning. I'm hoping JaMychal Green breaks out into a candidate though. I also think McCamey will be a 1st teamer, as Illinois wins the Big Ten, he had a very underrated season by many since they lost a lot of should-win games, but if he improves on that same path he has these past 3 years, and his team wins big, and he puts up comparable if not slightly better #'s, he def on there. And lastly, if Lavoy Allen could start dominating the way he should in the A-10, and plays to the max of his potential, then he should def be a candidate for at least honorable mention, I like his game, and Temple always has a chance to be a top 2, 3 team in that conference.

I agree with Iggy when he put

I agree with Iggy when he put Pullen as 1st team because Clemente's gone and Pullen averaged 19 a game with Clemente's 17 points a game so I think Pullen will up his numbers even more next season.

i would not put

i would not put Pullen,Frederette & Lucas on the 1st team...
Even though Mich.St. & Kansas St. will both start the year off in the top 5.

BYU's conference schedule will hurt Jimmer's chances at 1st team.... maybe he'll make 2nd or 3rd team..

And i dont know if coach K will limit Irving's minutes becuz he has a great set of guards in Smith,Dawkins,& Curry..but if Irving starts look out

Fredette has the inside track

Fredette has the inside track to lead the nation in scoring next year. I seriously believe he'll be a 1st team guy. He's one of the 2 or 3 best perimeter players in college basketball too.

Kansas State should be just as good as last season, and maybe even better. I'd be shocked if Pullen didn't average 19 or 20 a game with 4 apg and around 2 spg. That should be enough to warrant a 1st team selection.

Kalin Lucas will be the best PG in the nation next year, and Michigan State is poised for a title run if he returns healthy, and I think he will be.

Ok a few things I got from

Ok a few things I got from this post...

1. RIP MANUTE- you make way to big of a deal what position guys are listed at. Who cares if a guy is a SG and he's listed at SF, or if a guy is a PG and he's listed at SG or if a guy is a PF and he's listed at C, see where im going here? Guys play lots of postitions, and alot of positions are similair where it really doesnt matter. In the long run what is the difference between the SG and the SF? they are both wings. Dont worry about guys positions on things like that.

2. I like how the KU pride guy calls Iggy on the K state bias...if that aint the pot callin the kettel black :)

3. Good looking list- I agree with Singler and Sullinger, and depending on Kalin Lucas recovers from that injury maybe him too, but the other too I have questions about. It doesnt seem like this year, there is that bonafide slam dunk POY guy like there have been in years past. It looks like the talent is pretty evenly dispersed throughout the country this year and it should make for an excellent NCAA season.

A couple of guys I'm curious about though are Harrison Barnes (is he the real deal, I've heard mixed thoughts), Howard Thompkins (is he a 20 and 10 guy and how does his game translate to the NBA) and Shelvin Mack (could he be a sleeper both in college and in terms of pro potential)

JNixon-Iggy9 - All Americans Next Year

JNixon-Iggy9, I don't follow college basketball as closely as you do so I need your help. I noticed very few centers on your projected All American teams. Big guys are usually the number one topic so this seems like a real off year for them.

Would you be kind enough to rank the top 5 centers in the country for next season?

Barnes is the truth. Should

Barnes is the truth. Should step in a contribute solid stats. I think he gets 16 ppg,7 or 8 rpg, 2 apg, 1 bpg, and a 1spg. Think Luol Deng when he was at Duke.

Thompkins game translates. He's similar to Jason Thompson of the Sacremento Kings. Skilled, long, big, with nice touch. Also a below average defender like THompson though.

Enes Kanter JaJuan

Enes Kanter
JaJuan Johnson
Fab Melo
Renardo Sidney
Aaric Murray

Those are my top 5 C's. Sidney and Johnson are PF's but, they'll play extended time at C next year.

I know you're a K-State guy,

I know you're a K-State guy, but no Marcus Morris? He isn't flashy, but he's flat out effective I think he'll put up around 15 and 9, I think he's at least a 3rd teamer if not 2nd.

JNixon-Iggy9 on the All Americans

JNixon-Iggy9, you're obviously very busy with this post and I'm not trying to give you a hard time, but I'm confused. In your list, you have Enes Kanter listed as a F but in the list of the top 5 centers, you had his name. Is he a center of a PF?

Have you seen any of the following guys actually play?

Fab Melo
Enes Kanter
Harrison Barnes
Aaric Murray

I'm curious because I never saw any of them play for a single minute. Are you rating them highly because you've seen them and were impressed or are you basing your opinions upon what you've read?

Thanks

Yeah you're right. Kanter is

Yeah you're right. Kanter is a C.

Fab Melo is a defensive and rebounding presence with huge size and the length and touch to make shots around the rim. He's not polished, but he has decent enough post skills to score about 14 ppg next year. His D doesn't project to the NBA the way it does in college (no defensive 3 second and Syracuse plays a zone), but he should develop into a very good post defender in the NBA. Think of a young Andrew Bynum if you need a visual of Melo's game.

Harrison Barnes is extremely skilled and is outstanding at nearly every aspect of the game. Except he is a good, not great ball handler, and his 3-point shot isn't great yet. He should post stats similar to what Luol Deng did as a Freshman, my projection is: I think he gets 16 ppg,7 or 8 rpg, 2 apg, 1 bpg, and a 1spg.

Enes Kanter is a big bodied post man with a decent mid-range/pick and roll game, good passing ability, and nice touch and overall skills around the rim. He's not athletic and not a great defender right now though. He's similar to Andrew Bogut IMO

JNixon, thanks for the informative analysis but you didn't answer my question from above.

No Love For My Boys?

Not saying they will be sure candidates..but they definitely deserve some love and are expected to emerge as candidates sooner or later. Noone in the forum likes these guys?

Jordan Hamilton-With the big 3 leaving Texas to the NBA (James, Pittman, Bradley) a new Big 3 is expected to emerge led by Hamilton, (Joseph, Thompson). Hamilton should assume the leadership role and since Joseph is a defensive, floor general type PG, and Thompson is a high energy shot blocking, rebounding Big Hamilton should assume the go-to guy role for Texas and become their leader.

Robert Sacre-Emerging as one of the best C's in the NBA on a team with many good pieces going forward. Sacre improves his game every year and with another improvement should be in consideration for an All American.

Elias Harris-Possesses a true inside outside game and does not settle for the shot. Harris can hit a mid-range j, the NBA 3 and go to the rack and create contact. There is not reason Harris should not be on this list or at least within consideration.

Rodney Williams-Rodney has argueably as much upside as any wing player in the nation (including Barnes and Perry). If he can improve his handle to the point where he can create shots and his shot to the point where he can make shots he will have a breakout season.

Greg Smith-Smith has arguably as much upside as any Big in the nation. His post skills are a work in progress but Greg is a player who is committed to improving and with his superior size, strenght and quickness he should do some real damage.Also with Paul George gone from Fresno State he should be getting alot more shots.

Josh Selby will put up better

Josh Selby will put up better numbers then Irving. It's a fact..not that Selby's better (he's not) but Coach Self has put him in a position to succeed right away. Selby has the keys from day one, while Irving doesn't.

And I'm getting really tired

And I'm getting really tired of all this Perry Jones All American crap. He's an incredible talent with a world of potential, but he has to do something with that potential. He honestly looks like he doesn't try and has no motor..maybe he's just that good, or the more likely reason is that he coasts through games because he's that much better then everyone else so he doesn't really have to even try. How can you put a guy on the AA team that doesn't bring it every possession and coasts through games? The point is is that he's a sink or swim type of guy..and my bet is that he's somewhere in between as a frosh.
