Yeah Davis was a beast at UK. They never even ran plays through him forreal or relied on him to score, and he still dominated rather easily.

I’ve recently gotten into college ball so from what I’ve saw, I’m going with Anthony Davis. Pretty much unstoppable as a player. Ben Simmons also played like a man possessed despite his team not making it far.
The scariest question in NBA history.

Lew Alcindor - no question

Only 2 losses in 3 years (not allowed to play as a freshman back then)
three NCAA championships in those three years
after his freshman year the NCAA banned dunking just because of his dominance in the paint
player-of-the-year twice and first team all-american all three years and many other awards

you can't have a much better career

I was young. But ralph Sampson was the best I’ve ever seen. He was in same era of ask Hakeem Jordan Ewing. And he was 3 time college player of the year. He was better than all of them. It’s a shame he got injured in his 4th year in the nba. Who knows what him and the dream would have done had he not gotten injured. They took down Magic Johnson at his peak in 1986 in the playoffs

No he wasn't. Was Hurley ever a NPOY of the candidate like Redick was?

Others mentioned him but Wayman Tisdale is why I love college basketball. Keith Lee from Memphis was pretty special, too. Cool thread!

During that time, I'd say the best player I saw with my own eyes might have been Ray Allen, but I was quite young in the 90s and did not remember college nearly as well as NBA.


I'd say Greg Oden was the best that I've probably seen a game from.


Duncan Crushed our UMASS dream that year and didnt go to the celtics in the draft :o

The best college player you've ever seen didn't even take his team to the tournament. That LSU team was ranked to start the year and came off making the tournament the year prior.

03 is when I first started watching college ball. Anthony Davis is probably the single most dominant player I've seen. Zion is creeping into that territory.

Yep Davis didn't have to score to just dominate the game
