This is only going to be worthwhile discussing, if you've graduated from UCLA, UNC, Kentucky, Kansas, Duke or nowadays Ohio St.

Francisco Elson would be the starting C on my school's hypothetical NBA team. Francisco fucking Elson. Your school wins this fantasy NBA matchup.

Heh heh.


But you have to add UConn to that list, and a few others to put at least 5 on the floor.

UCLA........................14
Duke........................13
Kentucky..................13
Kansas.....................12
North Carolina..........12
Connecticut..............11
Arizona.....................10
Texas........................10
Florida........................9
Wake Forest...............8
Georgia Tech..............,7
LSU.............................7
Memphis......................7
Ohio St........................7
Syracuse.....................7
Michigan St..................6
Stanford......................6
Southern Cal...............5


Elson...wow, not good.


As for ex-players, of course UCLA dominates; Jim McMillian played for my grad school; Reggie Miller from my HS (and college of course). Lord, he was amazing already in HS, grew up down the street.

You're #42? Ouch!



Yeah, we'll count him since you had the direct experience. But how old was laddie Greg in HS? 23? 33? 43?

You need 4 others though.

Clang!

I just looked it up though.
Greg's career FT% is .666. Surprising.
Shaq has never shot .666 in a season. Best season .622; career .527. Damn....

haha nah i went to a tiny school. this was in an offseason workout camp.
my only other basketball claim to fame is that steve reid, who was on the free throw line when bobby knight threw the chair, is a family friend. and dude can still play hella good.

Damn, I thought playing with Reggie Miller in our driveway was awesome, but getting dunked on by Oden and knowing the guy Bobby threw the chair at is truly epic!
