very very broad top i am going with Khalid Reeves he averaged nearly 24.5 points a game his senior season while sharing the back court with Damon Stoudamire he was drafted #12 by the Miami Heat in 1994 but just never panned out to be a true NBA player

Hansbrough has a chance to be a solid NBA player.

If anyone says McNamara I'll hurt them. Dude was garbage in college. So inefficient.

I loved Luke Jackson, and he flopped, but his career wasn't too illustrious in college ball. He had team success, I guess, but check his inefficiency out. I hate him so much :laugh:

Wagner, Swift, Hodge, Cleaves, el-Amin, Rider.

Christian Laettner.

Len Bias :sigh:

Rest in peace.

Really? Dude shot way under 40% in the NBA. Even if you can't do anything else, you should always shoot well if you are a great shooter? He did shoot 46% from three in college, but a ton of players have done that.

If we want an Arizona player, I'll go Hassan Adams. I thought he was as athletic and talented as Iggy. I was wrong :laugh2:

I'll throw Adam Morrison and Jay Williams out there.

Good calls. Those guys were better than a lot of guys I mentioned.

Mateen Cleaves and Khalid El-Amin were some of my favorite college players ever. The definition of true leaders. They overachieved because of their heart. I wish more guys like them could make the NBA and be successful, but that's not how it works.

07-23-2011, 09:33 PM
If he's Salim Stoudamire, I'm Manny Ramirez!

07-23-2011, 09:35 PM
Adam Morrison comes to mind, Sean May & Shelden Williams too

Holy ****, Harold Minor.

I'd say Adam Morrison. Those Larry Bird comparisons were ridiculous.

I wouldn't name a specific player at the top of my head, but there's a lot of guys in this year's draft that didn't get drafted and I'm wondering why not.

Kalin Lucas, Jacob Pullen, Ben Hansborough, Scotty Hopson....

I don't understand the need for teams to draft these guys from overseas. Might as well take a flier on one of the guys who played college if they're just going to stash that guy overseas for a couple years anyway.

It has to be Adam Morrison.
