basically which school would produce the best NBA starting five, here are some that I think would be really good:

Wake Forest:
PG: Chris Paul
SG: Josh Howard
SF: Darius Songaila
PF: David West
C: Tim Duncan

North Carolina:
PG: Raymond Felton
SG: Jerry Stackhouse
SF: Vince Carter
PF: Antwan Jamison
C: Rasheed Wallace

Georgia Tech:
PG: Jarret Jack
SG: Stephon Marbury
SF: Matt Harpring
PF: Thaddeus Young
C: Chris Bosh

PG: Chris Duhon
SG: Mike Dunleavy
SF: Correy Maggette
PF: Carlos Boozer
C: Elton Brand

PG: TJ Ford
SG: Daniel Gibson
SF: Kevin Durant
PF: PJ Tucker (not technically in the NBA anymore but bear with me)
C: LaMarcus Aldridge

PG: Jason "white chocolate" Williams
SG: Corey Brewer
SF: Mike Miller
PF: David Lee
C: Al Horford.

PG: Ben Gordon
SG: Ray Allen
SF: Rip Hamilton
PF: Rudy Gay
C: Emeka Okafor

I may be forgetting some team but who do you all think is the best? I personally would have to go with Wake Forest, I know Songaila sucks but come on look at the other four. And if anyone can name a good team I forgot let me know.

Uhh, Jordan on UNC and that team is stacked, though Wake Forest with CP3 and Duncan alone is an amazing team.

we just had this thread. And David West went to Xavier.

I didnt look into this that much, but UCLA in this recent draft alone has Russel Westbrook, Mbah A Moute, and Love

Didn't we already have this discussion?

Really? I thought I read somewhere that he went to Wake, wasn't there another good big who went to Wake a bit before Paul I may be confusing them. And I didn't know this thread was already done, my bad.

UNC and it's not even close, however I wouldn't take WF and Duke out of the discussion.

UNC and it's not even close.

No way, Chris Paul and Duncan alone would beat that team, then you throw in Josh Howard to and OMG

Since Rip Hamilton isnt a SF, I'd take Caron Butler there instead.

But here are some other solid teams:

PG Gilbert Arenas
SG Jason Terry
SF Richard Jefferson
PF Andre Iguodala (playing small, Luke Walton if you want a true PF)
C Channing Frye

Texas probably looks more like this:

PG TJ Ford
SG Daniel Gibson
SF Kevin Durant
PF LaMarcus Aldridge
C Chris Mihm

Out of all those teams, (considering David West is from Xavier) I think I'd pick the best 3 in this order: UConn, Texas, Arizona.
