Jerel McNeal should be a Pro

I still can't believe Jerel McNeal isn't on an NBA roster. He put up better numbers at Marquette, than DWADE. I hope he gets the opportunity to prove himself again.

Mccamey could go top 15 in

Mccamey could go top 15 in this draft, his body is of Baron Davis and he's a pure PG. My guy is Jereme Richmond. Hopefully Mike Shaw goes to Illinois, that guy is the next big star to be unknown.

D-Mac Top 15 in 2010? Are

D-Mac Top 15 in 2010? Are you serious? What cool-aid have you been drinking? I'm a huge Illini fan but man that is seriously a homer pick. He's gonna be good but not Top 15 this year.

Im from NY and will readily admit that while New York is considered the "mecca" for bball, Chi-Town is the better bball town and has continued to produce better college and pro players...

Ok for one thing, Lewis

Ok for one thing, Lewis Jackson has not played this year and may redshirt and secondly he is from Decatur, Illinois. Decatur is in central IL and nowhere near Chicago or Chicagoland. He has probably played some AAU basketball up there but he isn't from Chicago.

Bardo and Hudson both are from Carbondale, Illinois. Please realize that just because guys are from IL does not mean they are from Chicagoland.

Jackson is from Illinois and Moore is from Chicagoland too...

Lewis Jackson hopefully comes back this year. Secondly, one could say that E'Twaun Moore is from Chicagoland, because he is from Lake County, Indiana, which borders Chicago, and is part of the viewing audience.

Either way, Illinois is producing some really great NBA and College PG's.

Ben Wilson aka "Magic Johnson with a Jumpshot"

Check out this piece on him. He was some basketball player.

It's tragic how he was taken so young.

i was talking to a ucla

i was talking to a ucla bruin player on new years and he was telling me about some juco pg from chicago that was gonna be transferring to ucla next year and he sounded real excited about him saying he should come in and run the show immediately and that he was the number 1 juco player out there right now. I didn't look into it, but has anybody heard about this guy?
