People say no College team would be an NBA team. I find it hard to believe sometimes.

Absolutely not. Bismack Biyombo is far too refined of a player to let that happen.

Kentucky would definitely give the Bobcats a good game.

The 3 best players would be on the Wildcats. So it's possible, but Kentucky also has no depth and can only go 7 deep I believe.

umm no, kemba,henderson were stars in college, plus guys like bismack and agustine. they'd blow them out the water imo

they'd definitely have a chance. there's like 7 future NBA player on Kentucky.

Also:
-Augustin was a star PG in college
-Tyrus Thomas was a top player for LSU
-Maggete was a good Duke player
-Kemba was one of the top 3 players
-Diaw is an ok player
-Biyombo was a 7th overall pick
-Mullens was a decent player at OSU
-Higgins was a great player at Colorado, and he's the worst player on the team

Well theres 12 NBA players on the Bobcats so your answer is NO...Theres no chance they would ever beat them in one game let alone a series.

UK has no chance. B/C even to MAKE it to the NBA you've gotta be more than a reasonable college player. I don't see how a college team can compare with that.

What? Why do we get this thread every year about whether or not the worst team in the league would lose to a college team?

Let's put it this way. Every player on the Bobcats is an NBA player. Every player on Kentucky is not, and statistics say that most of them most likely won't be NBA players who get any sort of minutes.

The Bobcats would probably beat them by 40.

you have to understand...only a small number of college players are chosen to play in the NBA ever year so literally, with the exception of foreign players, all players in the NBA are the best colleges have to offer no matter what picks they are. there is no way ANY college team can beat a NBA team in a game. no chance. a nba team, no matter how bad they are, is literally a college all-star team.

Any NBA team would sweep any college team, and the margins of victory would probably be 20+ every game. The talent gap is a lot bigger than you would think.

All the Bobcats were great college players, but most are also a lot older/less athletic. If UK turned this into an open court game I think they could win a game or 2. Plus the effort and intensity is usually lost when players transistion from college to pro's, and the pressure would be on the Bobcats to not lose to a college team.

Are you serious? No college team could beat a pro team. They may have a lot of future NBA players on their team, but the Bobcats are all NBA players. They would probably win by 25 easily

It's highly unlikely a college team could keep up with pro's for 48 mins.

The Bobcats would crush them. I think people are underestimating how talented NBA players are. Henderson, Walker, and Augistine were better guards than the Kentucky guards in college.

Kentucky have 3 or 4 players right now, who in 4 years will probably all be better than everyone on the Bobcats. Unfortunately basketball isnt played 3 on 3. They would get beat down pretty bad, everyone on Charlotte was one of the best players in their respective college year.

Hawkeye15
02-14-2012, 01:49 PM
No way in hell. People forget that almost every player on an NBA roster was a great college player. Kentucky wouldn't be able to stop them.

No chance.

It ridiculous to think any college team in history can beat any pro team in history.

nba scrubs = all-americans in college. these guys would smash kentucky, no contest.

Hawkeye15

The only way Kentucky could even keep close is if they used college refs and rules. NBA players would be called for travel all the time, and offensive fouls left and right. Even then, an adjustment would be made.

I think the better question would be could they beat the worst international/foreign team.

pd1dish
02-14-2012, 04:13 PM
UK may be able to give them a run for their money, but you also have to take into account that the college game is only 40 minutes total whereas the NBA game is 48 minutes. and in college, a lot of the teams dont go deep into their bench, but in the NBA it is a must to utilize bench players.

also, i think that for the most part, no college team can beat a pro team, but if it could happen in any sport, it would probably be basketball because of all the one and done players we have nowadays that immediately impact the NBA. UK has 3 of them in Davis, Teague, and Kid-Gilchrist and then add Terrence Jones and Doron Lamb as sophomores and all 5 of those guys will most likely have an immediate impact on the team they are drafted to. that starting 5 could easily beat the starting 5 of the Bobcats. but like i said before, can their lack of depth that an NBA team has keep up?

The Bobcats would probably beat them by 40.

We do seem to get this thread every year but I think you're failing to have an appreciation for how historically bad the Bobcats are right now.

http://www.basketball-reference.com/play-index/tgl_finder.cgi?request=1&match=single&year_min=&year_max=&team_id=&opp_id=&is_playoffs=N&game_num_min=1&game_num_max=28&game_month=&game_location=&game_result=&is_overtime=&c1stat=diff_pts&c1comp=lt&c1val=-280&c2stat=&c2comp=gt&c2val=&c3stat=&c3comp=gt&c3val=&c4stat=&c4comp=gt&c4val=&order_by=diff_pts&order_by_asc=Y

Through 28 games, the Bobcats have the 2nd worst point differential in NBA history, topped only by the 92-93 Mavs (who were way way worse). In addition,

http://www.basketball-reference.com/play-index/tsl_finder.cgi?request=1&sum=0&type=team_totals&lg_id=NBA&year_min=1947&year_max=2012&franch_id=&c1stat=srs&c1comp=lt&c1val=-10&c2stat=&c2comp=gt&c2val=&c3stat=&c3comp=gt&c3val=&c4stat=&c4comp=gt&c4val=&order_by=srs&order_by_asc=Y

If that were to hold up for the entire season, the Bobcats would have the 2nd worst SRS in the history of the NBA. Luckily for them, there's still a lot of the season left.

Also, the Bobcats have the worst W-L% in the history of the NBA. Again, they still have the rest of the season to right the ship, but through 28 games, they're historically bad.

http://www.basketball-reference.com/play-index/tsl_finder.cgi?request=1&sum=0&type=team_totals&lg_id=NBA&year_min=1947&year_max=2012&franch_id=&c1stat=win_loss_pct&c1comp=lt&c1val=.200&c2stat=&c2comp=gt&c2val=&c3stat=&c3comp=gt&c3val=&c4stat=&c4comp=gt&c4val=&order_by=win_loss_pct&order_by_asc=Y

Finally, for good measure,

http://www.basketball-reference.com/play-index/tstreak.cgi?request=1&lg_id=NBA&year_min=1980&year_max=2012&team_id=&opp_id=&is_playoffs=N&game_location=&c1stat=pts&c1comp=lt&c1val=opp_pts&c2stat=&c2comp=ge&c2val=&c3stat=pts&c3comp=lt&c3val=90&c4stat=&c4comp=ge&c4val=&m1stat1=&m1math=s&m1stat2=&m1comp=ge&m1val=

the Bobcats one of only 13 teams to lose 7 games in a row while scoring less than 90 points in each game. You'll also notice they are on this list twice, having a 6 game streak too. That Wizards game is the game keeping them from being #1 on this list.

The one area they are holding up "well" is the losing streak department. They are still 11 games from matching the longest losing streak in NBA history. And 5 games away from being only the 6th team in NBA history to lose 20 in a row.

Still, this is a historically bad team. However, I'm not implying the Bobcats wouldn't destroy Kentucky because they are still an NBA team.

The Wildcats are still developing physically and mentally/maturity. They would get swept fairly easily. Even in six years they'd be lucky to snatch a game or two in a seven game series. It's all potential that people are basing their views on, some of these UK guys could bust in the NBA.

College kids play with a 35 second shot clock and camp in the paint. They also have a much closer 3pt arc. Charlotte would probably win 99/100.

Kentucky would have a slim chance, if any.

If a miracle did happen, the wins would be vacated a few years later, anyway.

this. I'm not ready to say a college team can beat a NBA team but this would cut it very close

avrpatsfan
02-15-2012, 01:31 PM
Tyrus Thomas was almost as good as Davis is right now in college. He actually shot a higher percentage than Davis on college for LSU. And now he's a better player. It wouldn't be very close.

02-15-2012, 04:41 PM
Teague, Lamb, Kidd-Gilchrist, Jones and Davis would be a far far better starting five than anything the Bobcats could put together.

Remember when you thought you were the **** in middle school at hoop? Then you get into HS and realize they're 20 steps ahead of you talent-wise. That talent gap gets exponentially bigger from HS (even within HS divisions) to D3 to D1 college. There are less than 500 players in the NBA right now, and a good percentage of those have been incumbents.
Additionally, the incoming draft class is being projected as one of the weakest in a while.
Not gonna happen.

Is it because you think the past few drafts have been weak as well, or you think it's a strong incoming 2012 draft class?
