What if fab five of 2012

I was watching the Fab Five show the other day and i thought what if something like that happened this year what would the team look like. This is mine.

PG: Marquis Teague, Would be the Sparkplug leading the fast break for this Athletic team.

SG: Austin Rivers, Ice cold in late game situations and can create his own shot.

SF: Quincy Miller, Athletic and has decent perimeter skills.

PF: James McAdoo, Strong, Athletic and has nice touch. Perfect fit for this team.

C: Anthony Davis, Will be a BEAST on D and would do great in a fast tempo system like this.

Lets see everyone else's new fab five.

Well.....

Let's be honest, the Fab 5 had 4 guys who were ranked top 10 by most scouting services, and than Ray Jackson who was in the 80's. But, if you want the 5 best players, and I can move Anthony Davis to Center, than I would take your 5 guys except have Quincy Miller at 4 and than Mike Gilchrist at the 3. It would be a thin front court, but who in the heck is keeping up with that team? Also, if I could move Rivers to the 1, and than have Gilchrist as a 2, than I think that Davis, McAdoo, Miller, Gilchrist and Rivers are the 5 best prospects coming into college. Bradley Beal would just finish 6th, than from there things get tricky.

Mine

PG: Tony Wroten

SG: Austin Rivers

SF: Mike Gilchrist

PF: Quincy Miller

C: Anthony Davis

I only change two players from your fab five but I think you would be able to get away with playing a little smaller at the 4 with Davis patrolling the paint and I really like Gilchrist offensively and defensively, plus hes a good team player and would be an asset late in games. I also love Wroten's game and I think he is going to be the best PG in this class when all is said and done... He's got unbelievable floor vision and is gonna be a great distributor.

I completly forgot about

I completly forgot about Gilchrist lol. With his athleticism it would really push this team over the edge and no single team in college basketball could keep up with them.

I have to agree with

I have to agree with sideburn2go. I don't think Kabongo or Teague could guard Wroten, plus he has as good of vision if not better.

PG Wroten-has the ability of

PG Wroten-has the ability of any other pg in the class but the size to defend 2 and maybe even college 3's, would be great in an electric offense like this would be

SG Rivers-Not a huge fan, but perfect compliment to Wroten, if he can run off screens well he would be dynamic with Wroten, can create on his own when I need more offense

SF Gilchrist-Slasher and versatile defender who will bring heart and more passing ability, plus great rebounding

PF Miller-Stretch 4 who score in a variety of ways, brings great length as well

C Davis-can protect the paint and rebound, will get plenty of 1 on 1 matchups with Miller drawing out the other big, perfect 5 man for an up-tempo offense
