NCAA:1.) UNC...Most

NCAA:

1.) UNC...Most disappointing team? YES, also Michigan has been pretty bad as well considering that they were ranked highly (like top 15) in the pre-season

2.) Dexter Pittman....Bigger disappointment than Xavier Henry in the conference slate?  YES, Henry hasn't shown me a lot but PIttman can't even stay on the floor because he hasn't been effective

3.) Eric Bledsoe...2nd best PG prospect for the 2010 draft? YES, Sherron Collins is right there though. Bledsoe is just younger with more upside.

4.) Big East...Best conference in the nation? YES, Nova, Cuse, WV, UConn, Louisville, Cincy, etc.. Loaded

5.) Austin Freeman...Best shooter in the nation? Nope, a lot of his shots are wide open. Which means he is a smart shooter. However he doesn't have the quickest release. Guys like Rotnei Clarke & John Jenkins are purer shooters

6.) James Anderson....Most underrated prospect in the projected 2010 class?  Nope...there are a lot of prospects more underrated than Anderson I think

7.) Jim Boeheim...Coach of the Year?  Wow...I have to say YES.  Excellent coaching job. That team has solid chemistry & nobody expected them to be this good.

NBA:

1.) Kevin Durant...Most Improved Player?  I'm not sure...he has been a Monster though.

2.) Jared Dudley...Best shooter in the League? No I don't think so. I would put Morrow, Gallinari ahead of Dudley just off the top of my head

3.) Amare Stoudemire...Most important player on the trading block?  I would say Chris Bosh. He has played better than Amare so I would say Bosh is the more important trade piece. 

4.) Golden State...Most dysfunctional organization?  H-E-L-L Yeah.  Coach Nelson is coo coo for cocoa puffs LOL

5.) Rajon Rondo...Most underrated player in the NBA? He is startng to get a lot of recognition finally. Still a little underrated but not too bad.

6.) Monta Ellis...Biggest All-Star snub? Yeah probably so. Just because he plays for a losing team is why he didn't make it.

7.) Joakim Noah...2nd best center in the East? I don't know Lopez & Bogut are right there with him.  I would take Noah out of those 3 but Noah is one of my favorite players so I might be biased.

Monta Ellis

He isn't a snub. He scores, but he wouldn't be a starting pg on a playoff team. He is not a top 50 NBA player. Scorer, but not player. Not saying he couldn't be a valuable part of a playoff team, but he isn't an all star

Just 21 games. But still, I think he is the best shooter in the NBA. His jump is feathery, and he can make it from anywhere.

55% from the field is also outstanding considering most of his shots come from 15-25 feet.

Yea he's always arguably the best shooter, but he hasn't played so I forgot to even think about him. He was kinda outta sight, outta mind.

Yeah, he isn't playing many minutes so far this season.

His jump shot is beautiful though. Like seriously. The arc, the form, and the way it hits the bottom of the net. It brings a tear to my eye.

To me, it's between him and Morrow as to who's the best shooter. I included Dudley because he's the best shooter statistically.

NCAA:

1.) UNC...Most disappointing team? Hell Yeah... My Tar Heels suck this year...

2.) Dexter Pittman....Bigger disappointment than Xavier Henry in the conference slate? Yeah... He's like one of them London Guards doing nothing outside the Queen's palace...

3.) Eric Bledsoe...2nd best PG prospect for the 2010 draft? Willie Warren is second IMO...

4.) Big East...Best conference in the nation? Yep...

5.) Austin Freeman...Best shooter in the nation? Terrific shooter but I think there are better shooters than him...

6.) James Anderson....Most underrated prospect in the projected 2010 class? Yeah... definitely under..

7.) Jim Boeheim...Coach of the Year? Good job this year... Yes...

NBA:

1.) Kevin Durant...Most Improved Player? I'd rather put KD in MVP conversation rather than Most Improved... This is for guys like Marc Gasol and Zach Randolph...

2.) Jared Dudley...Best shooter in the League? What???? Nope... Anthony Morrow is my guy...

3.) Amare Stoudemire...Most important player on the trading block? Yep... With all the trade talks, I'm sick of it...

4.) Golden State...Most dysfunctional organization? Yep... Don Nelson needs to experience The Twilight Zone...

5.) Rajon Rondo...Most underrated player in the NBA? Nope... He's already an All-Star... Gerald Wallace is more of the underrated IMO..

6.) Monta Ellis...Biggest All-Star snub? Josh Smith!

7.) Joakim Noah...2nd best center in the East? Brook Lopez is better than Joakim..

i don't think dudley is

i don't think dudley is close to the best shooter. The stats say so, but the stats also said guys like bruce bowen and detlef Schrempf led the nba in shooting as well. To me, those guys take open threes when their feet is set and they have time and defenses don't show them the respect. But if guys like korver, kaponno, novak, peja, morrow, DCook, gibson and some others only shot when they were left wide open, i think they would put up better numbers.
