Hypothetically speaking, if you took Lebron (today not at 18 years old) D-wade or Kobe, and stuck one of them on a team like Texas, Siena, or LSU how far do you think they would make it in the NCAA tournament? Elite 8? Final Four? Championship???

Interesting. I think most of them would be favorites to win the championship. There's few enough people in the NBA that can guard LeBron, Wade or Kobe, there's nobody in college that can.

The poll is a bit confusing. Probably shouldn't have put National Champion and National Championship as two options. I'm assuming one is the national championship game and the other being the national champion.

Look no further than the Marquette team Dwyane carried on his back to the Final Four in 2003.

Thats an interesting question, they should have a College All-Stars vs Nba All-stars game, the winners would be obvious, but I would like to see how much the college all-stars could hang around.

National Championship..... look at what carmello did, he was NBA ready, went to College, Won.

Lebron is an even better player then mello.

Not as sure about wade, because he is not as much of a mismatch as Lebron is. (Lebron could be put at all 5 positions on most colledge teams).
And wade wouldnt be able to get to the line the way he does in the NBA, NCAA is not gonna give him those "pitty pat" calls.

Wade= more talented. Mismatches only get you so far when you're double teamed.

national championship, undoubtedly. And it would be easy.

Some of y'all may be underestimating just how much better the marginal NBA players are than the average college player. You put an undeniable superstar and it's not even a competition.

Hell, you put Linas Kleiza on an 8 seed college team and they'd probably win it all, too. At least get to the Final Four. You make it LeBron? The tournament doesn't even need to be played.

Wade has been there and done that. You think he couldn't go to college now and dominate? He did it at age 21 and took a sub par supporting cast to the Final Four. Wade would dominate the college game just as easily as he dominated the Olympics.

Getting to the championship would be a breeze for those guys.

I wanna see Hansbourough try to check Howard, Duncan, or Yao....any of the following players would singe-handedly carry a college team to the championship....

Wade
Lebron
Howard
Kobe
CP3
D-Will
Duncan

Kinda confusing having National Champions and National Championship??

Either way they'd win it all... hands down.

I think LeBron could win it without much difficulty, guys like Wade and Kobe I think will easily make it to the championship, but wouldn't be locks to win it. LeBron is unstoppable though...

Sorry...that is confusing...let me clarify...NATIONAL CHAMPIONS means WINNING IT ALL...while NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP means that they REACH THE FINAL GAME, but LOSE in the end.

Thats better

I think a LeBron type player would net any team a championship.

My question is how would a shooter impact a college team? Put Ray Allen on a team like Gonzaga. Do they become favorites to win the tourney? It definitely won't be as dominant as a guy like Kobe or Wade or LBJ, but it would definitely have a huge impact. What do you think?

Now they could win a championship of course if u play them at there prime ...but early in their career probably not

yeah but melo didnt do it himself like wade. Melo had Warrick and the player who should be in the nba: Gerry Mcnamera

and more if they wanted too, it seems the selected NBA Players are mentally on another level

they'd win the championship single handedly
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

single handedly championship. 60 points per game while also making their teamates better. they would also lockdown the other teams best player, which may be the most important thing.
