COLLEGE: Best Player: Evan

COLLEGE:

Best Player: Evan Turner, he simply does everything well as a player. He's the best player out there, maybe not the best long-term prospect, but he's the best and most NBA ready player out there. Early prediction: Evan Turner will be the Rookie of the Year in the 2010-2011 season

Best Team: The Kansas....State Wildcats!!! Lol..I'll be honest and say the hated Jayhawks lol. They have alot of depth, talent and good coaching. I think they'll be in the title game come season end.

Most Underrated Prospect: Iman Shumpert. He has legit PG and SG skills. He's not a 2 playing the 1 or a 1 playing the 2. He's a LEGIT combo guard. And he's a NBA level defender and athlete.

Most Overrated Prospect: Ed Davis. Hands down.

Most Impressive Freshman (besides John You-Know-Who): I'd say it's Favors. Alot of people will say it's Xavier Henry, but Favors has gotten better after every game I've watched him play. He probably won't put up the Mike Beasley type numbers I expected, but 17 & 9 or 17 &10 is not out of the realm of possibility. He's a dominating presence for the most part, even though he does need a few more moves.

Best Conference: The Big 12.

2 Prospects That Deserve More Mention: Dominique Jones. He plays for the horrible squad that is the South Florida Bulls, but he has not a 1 weak part of his game. Put it this way; If he played for Duke, Dick Vitale would be all on his Dick.....Vitale lol.

Sleeper Team: The Minnesota Golden Gophers

NBA:

MVP: I'll say Dwyane Wade.

Best Perimeter Defender: From what I've seen, it's Rondo this year.

Best Interior Defender: I'll go Garnett.

Best Scorer: Carmelo Anthony.

Most Underrated Player: Paul Pierce or Danny Granger

Most Overrated Player: Monta Ellis

Biggest Disappointment (Player or Team): Thaddeus Young

Biggest Suprise (Player or Team): The Atlanta Hawks!

Best Team: The LA Lakers

Worst Team: Of course, the New Jersey Nets.

My Answers

COLLEGE:

Best Player: John Wall

Best Team: Kansas

Most Underrated Prospect: Going by nbadraft.net's current board DeMarcus Cousins. Also feel people are sleeping on Sherron Collins possible Ty Lawson like impact.

Most Overrated Prospect: Devin Ebanks seems to be based on complete potential. Also see a lot of better basketball players than Stanley Robinson ranked behind him.

Most Impressive Freshman (besides John You-Know-Who): So far would have to say on potential it is Derrick Favors, though I think Tiny Gallon will be a very productive college player

Best Conference: Big East

2 Prospects That Deserve More Mention: Tyler Smith and Jerome Dyson

Sleeper Team: Florida State, due to their monster bigs and athleticism on the wing

NBA:

MVP: Still am thinking LeBron James, though Kobe is putting up a solid case. Still going LeBron

Best Perimeter Defender: Shane Battier

Best Interior Defender: Dwight Howard, though Greg Oden is honestly catching up. Beast down low.

Best Scorer: No one has the offensive skill set of Kobe Bryant. No matter how easy Melo makes it look or the brute strength of LeBron, even the relentless driving of Dwyane Wade, still going with Kobe.

Most Underrated Player: I think Stephen Jackson is proving to be one of the more underrated players honestly. He helped the Warriors get better when he got there and now look at what he is doing with the Bobcats.

Most Overrated Player: Looking like Al Jefferson. When is he going to win?

Biggest Disappointment (Player or Team): I knew the Raptors were fairly bad at defense, but their struggles on both ends of the court and hopelessness on the wing are very disappointing to me.

Biggest Suprise (Player or Team): Phoenix, due to the fact that they still have no depth at big.

Best Team: LA Lakers

Worst Team: I think pound for pound it is the Timberwolves, even with New Jersey still winless.

COLLEGE:Best Player: SHERRON

COLLEGE:

Best Player: Sherron Collins

Best Team: Kansas...it hurts me to say that.  I hope they get beat in the NCAA tourney haha

Most Underrated Prospect: based on the mock drafts on this site:  Manny Harris.. I obviously think he is a lot better than a 2nd round pick in 2011.

Most Overrated Prospect: based on the 2010 mock draft on this site: Paul George... I don't think he is a lottery pick in 2010.

Most Impressive Freshman (besides John You-Know-Who): Derrick Favors. Runner Up: Jordan Hamilton

Best Conference:

2 Prospects That Deserve More Mention:  There are a bunch in my opinion but I'll name my top 5 most overlooked: Jeffry Taylor, Scotty Hopson, Sylven Landesberg, Manny Harris, Chris Singleton

Sleeper Team: Tennessee, they have the talent to make it to the final 4

 International Player that Deserves More Attention: Milan Macvan

NBA:

MVP:  Melo or Wade...toss up right now

Best Perimeter Defender:  Battier

Best Interior Defender:  Howard ( I like shot blockers) I think Tyrus Thomas & Oden are very good at altering shots too.

Best Scorer: Melo

Most Underrated Player: Noah, Tyrus Thomas

Most Overrated Player: Hinrich

Biggest Disappointment (Player or Team):  Wizards & Raptors.  Both are off to rocky starts.  They are both too talented to be below .500.  Wizards have dealt with injuries which has hurt them some.  I think both teams will still make the playoffs though.  But yep up to this point they have underperformed.  Caron Butler has been struggling so far.

Biggest Suprise (Player or Team): Kings.  Before the season started I thought they would be the worst team in the league. Udrih, Rodiriguez, Thompson, & Greene have really stepped their game from last season.  Plus Casspi & Tyreke have made a very positive impact.

Best Team:  Magic...I was a huge fan of their offseason moves.  If they can get healthy & stay that way I think they will beat the Lakers.

Worst Team:  Knicks stink.  I think the Nets are better when they are 100% healthy.
