Any games in particular you guys are looking forward to? What about any early upset predictions?

All Arizona games, Oregon and UCLA games, including a Kentucky/UCLA potential rematch, and then the teams with top draft prospects. I don't typically go with too many early bracket upsets as they could destroy your bracket if you pick a team that wins 3 or 3 games or so to lose in the first round.

Sure there will be some but guessing them is a crapshoot.

I just hope Gonzaga loses as soon as possible, but hey that's me.


Which player are you most excited to see? I'm hoping Ball has a good tournament. Wanna see what Malik Monk does too.

I'd like to see them lose too, being an AZ fan. I'm excited to see all the top prospects, but particularly Josh Jackson, Jayson Tatum and Jonathan Isaac, and De'Aaron Fox, since I haven't seen them a lot, am a Suns fan, and we should have a top 7 pick.

I'm a Tar Hell junkie so I always look forward to their games. Game 1 wasn't much of a game, but I'm happy !!!!!!!

Well, Oregon and Michigan which just finished was crazy good. Arizona/UCLA and Arizona/Oregon in the conference tourney earlier were also very good.

Those come to mind being an AZ fan and due to recency. There are certainly some more. I think most of the games in the tourney from here on out will be good.

I'm from the state of one team and became a fan of the other's football team at a young age. I just pull for the bball team whenever they're not playing my #1 college team.

OK, so next question, if you are from Detroit or North Carolina (guessing you are from Detroit) because I can't see a young person adopting the Tar Heels football team, why would you be a Pelicans fan and not a Pistons fan?

Yeah, I guess I contradicted myself...if you wouldn't adopt the Tar Heels, that would mean you are from NC, which makes sense why a Pelicans fan. Interesting though, especially if you still live there, that you would hang onto them over the new team.

However I cannot change loyalties, even when teams move. I'm a Chargers fan, and I hate LA but I guess I will deal with it.

I'm with the current NBA team in New Orleans till the end. THE END!!!

I don't get this Gonzaga hate. They are legit.
