Quite the hyperbole.

I meant to say sans Young. But the fact is in the very next round they would be facing a Duke team with 5 legitimate NBA players on the roster in Bagley, Carter (two top 10 picks), Gary Trent Jr, Trevon Duval, and Grayson Allen (probably first rounders). This Oklahoma team would've gotten absolutely beat down if they faced Duke next and so LeBron could probably do it, but it's not as easy as people would think.

Yeah, I got you meant sans Young but I feel like even an 18 year old Lebron would have dragged any team to the Final Four at least. He's so head and shoulders above everyone else, I mean he averaged 20 points per game his rookie year, he would have been putting up legendary numbers in the NCAA.

Yeah you could be right, possible exaggeration there. I'm just really upset at Young's teammates. :lol: It always sucks when you miss out on the chance to see an amazing player in the tournament continue to show what he can do as the stage grows bigger, simply because the guys around him fail to do their job.

UNCG choked

We also face the Kings twice in the near future. I think it's time Yabu pays back some of that free money he's been given his entire career and bounces Fox for a nice 2 week ankle sprain.

Yeah that one's super random.

But would be awesome to see how Luka Doncic, Dzanan Musa and Isaac Bonga would do.

It'd be huge for Bagley if he can show he can hit some open 3s in this tourney. He's got an amazing post game but if he adds that wrinkle into his game his value sky rockets IMO.

He definitely had a good game today and though I'm not really as high on his NBA upside as others, I think playing with Lebron is the exact situation he'd need to be in to excel.

That would have been a horrific scene to witness.

Bracket isn’t looking too bad. Switched my pick on Miami vs Loyola- Chi. Always stick with your gut feeling lol.

If anyone was high on Killian Tillie. I don't think he's worthy of a first round pick at all. He struggles to guard smaller defenders and I don't think his length is good enough to compensate for his athleticism. If he isn't making shots..who is he???
The Wizards hired Scott Brooks to lure Kevin Durant to D.C. Neither of those 2 panned out well.
