So who do you like? How do you rank em?
*edit* I started this thread because I was curious to see what colleges had the most CURRENT nba players. All these lists are based on players who are in the league right now.
Arizona, Duke, UConn, and UNC would be my final four, primarily because of the completeness of the starting lineups.
Duke and UConn in the championship because of the talent off the bench. Duke would be very good defensively, but UConn has so many dead eye shooters. looks like the new pistons. My pick is UConn.
team looks stacked dem uconn and tarheels wud be in for money with those team
Team UCONN is loaded! If you break down the rosters by where the players were drafted, UCONN would have a team of first rounders, with 9 of the 10 players being lottery picks. The only other teams that can match up with them in Zona, Carolina, and Duke. Another thing, instead of doing just active players, do a roster of players who played there within the last 20 years. The list of schools would be bigger to include schools like Syracuse, Georgetown, Michigan, Michigan St., Indiana, and possibly Louisville. Other than that, good post
you missed Georgia Tech the lineup is super small but i think they could maybe compete with some of those teams
bench-Matt Harpring, Javaris Crittenton, Will Bynum
Team Georgia Tech is slept on. And dont forget about Morrow off the pine! But the Final 4 would be Georgia Tech, Team Arizona (led by Iguodala..lol), Team UNC, and Team UConn. They all have good starting 5's and plenty of depth.
How about Wake Forest after 2 years ?
bench: Aminu, Darius Songaila, Tony Woods
UCONN no doubt. Arizona second.
lol how about the LSU line-up
PG: Anthony Randolph
SG: Tyrus Thomas
SF: Brandon Bass
PF: Glen Big Baby Davis
Bench: Stromile Swift
Thats how I think it would end up. Good lists
Hmm... Quite interesting. Come to think of it, I don't recall any LSU guard being successful. That team would just get demolished by any other team though. Maybe stick Tasmin Mitchel in there?
Marcus Thornton? I believe he lead the SEC in scoring last yr.
I kinda meant guards who've done well on the NBA level.
Yea, lol. Spencer made their lineup with all 4's and 5's. They are frontcourt heavy in terms of the quality NBA level players they produce. Thornton is the only NBA level player they have in the backcourt.
LSU had Mahoumed Abdul Rauf (Chris Jackson) he was sick. Also, didn't Maravich go there?
Memphis would be pretty good
G- Derrick Rose
G- Tyreke Evans
F- Chris Douglas Roberts
F- Joey Dorsey
C- Lorenzen Wright
Bench: Darius Washington, Rodney Cardney, Shawne Williams, Robert Dozeir, and Antonio Anderson
Maravich did in fact go to LSU, and averaged ridiculous #'s
Glen Big Baby Davis
now that is a bomb squad
Why is Maravich in there? Isnt this only for people who are still playing?
i was just answering the other guys question about past LSU gaurds. And yes, I started this just as current nba players only. I did forget to add Georgia Tech, but I don't think they would be top 5 on this list with that weak bench.
Uconn and UNC are in a class above the rest... Zona is up there, but they don't have a legit big man. Channing Frye and Jordan Hill is a sad combo... if Arizona could trade one of their MANY guards for a big, than maybe
Antawn-Rasheed is the best big combo out there so I'll go UNC
yeah chris jackson would have to replace randolph easily..he was a monster in college..alot of teams are missing some of there best players im not sure if its because llperez for got or because hes young...you have kansas which should have wilt..kentucky should have mashburn and toney delk. ucla's whole starting 5 would probably be changed. deng starting over grant hill???..and d.jones is even on the team? and uconn ..khalid elamin?...other then that stuff you did a pretty good job
quincey, I thought it was pretty obvious by my lists that these are strcitly current nba players. Plus, as for the starting 5's, it is based on how they are performing today and not necesaarily how their whole career has gone.
so it doesnt include what they did in college just what they did in the nba?..i would have said it was obvious but there was no explination..just list of players who played at there respective college 3 other people mentioned chris jackson and pistol pete
Maybe I should have explained it in the original post. But everyone on those lists are current nba players. If we were going by all time players, then this list would be one of the worst things ever posted on this site.
Uconn is the best, also I was really surprised at how good Arizona is.
Team Kansas JayHawks:
bench:Darnell Jackson, Brandon Rush, Darrell Arthur, Julian Wright Nick Collison
No one has really mentioned them, but i like that Florida team. There's a lot of hustle in there. Good thread idea.
