    I mean I think both Kentucky teams would win a series against 08 Kansas. But I’m not betting on it or anything.

    It’s hard to take a man seriously who also believes he could kill a wolf with his bare hands.

    Because they would have the best player on the court regardless of who they played for starters.

    I mean Patterson, wall, cousins, and Bledsoe were on nba rosters less than a year later, let’s not talk about this like it was their 8th grade year in middle school. And actually I’m sure a couple were “pros” right after the game, as far as getting agents/loans/etc

    But yea 09 UK for sure would be the best team to not get to final four. Ridiculous talent. I mean wall and cousins on the same team, surrounded by 3 others who played in the league.

    Just to make sure the Purdue broken record is accounted for in this thread:

    2010 Purdue (pre-Hummel ACL tear) probably should be in the top 10-15 discussion for this topic. Not a bunch of top-line NBA talent, but a really great, experienced college team.

    Were 24-3 (12-3)

    G - E'Twaun Moore (2-time 1st team All-B1G, 2-time 2nd team)
    G - Keaton Grant
    G - Chris Kramer (2-time B1G DPOY)
    F - Robbie Hummel (3-time 1st team All-B1G, 1-time 3rd team)
    C - JaJuan Johnson (1st team AA, B1G POY, B1G DPOY, 2-time 1st team All-B1G)

    There was a PITT team with Blair that was really, really good. 1 seed maybe can't remember who beat them maybe Butler.

    EDIT: Blair not on the team I was thinking about 2011. Wannamaker I think was their guy.

    1983-84 UNC was the best team to not win the championship.
    They had 9 McDonalds AA on the roster.
    Michael Jordan
    Sam Perkins
    Kenny Smith
    Brad Daughtery
    Joe Wolf
    Matt Doherty
    Dave Popson
    Buzz Peterson
    Curtis Hunter

    Kenny Smith injury during the season really hurt the team & they never recovered from it.

    Oh ok, because they declared for the draft that means they had already had months and years of NBA coaching and everything else...gotcha! Some of you people and your UK hate makes you look really bad.

    Honestly, it seems like IU owns UNC throughout history.

    I'll add that at the time Hummel got hurt, Purdue had won 10 straight, including wins over #16 Wisconsin, @ #10 MSU and @ #9 OSU.

    Very common topic on this board. 2010 what if’s I mean.

    Kentucky
    Purdue
    Syracuse

    All of you get in line behind the overall #1 seed, pre-tournament #1 KenPom rated and 32-2 Kansas Jayhawks.

    2018 UVA is a pretty good choice as well. We were 31-2 heading into the NCAA tourney and the #1 overall seed, despite DeAndre Hunter getting injured. The NCAA conspired against us that year.

    We went 17-1 in the ACC :)eek:) and won the ACC tournament. It's not like the ACC was some slouch getting 8 teams in the NCAAs.

    You were the one that posted they weren’t pros at the time, when the fact is they were good enough to be pros at the time bc they got drafted a few months later. Why would they need years of nba coaching when they had the great developer for 6 months.

    They aren't #1 but 2008-2009 Pittsburgh deserves some consideration.

    Because 6 months isn’t long enough. When they’re in college they have class and everything else. When they are pros they wake up and can go to the gym all day. It’s just different! Look at Jordan, really good college player but look what happen when he got to the NBA and could work on his game all day every day!

    Indiana, Louisville and Kentucky fans on here like to pretend like they have the most hatred but generally they all suck each other’s dicks when topics come up about other programs and where they stand in relation to those 3.

    Really? Okey dokey dude, whatever you say, although I was just having a little fun while sitting at work.

    Fwiw, IU is, BY FAR, my most hated team, with UL second.

    Heh. I believe you. My research is limited to just their fans on this board and it really isn't even research. Just an observation. ;)

    Gotcha. I don't venture over to this board all that often so you would know the regulars better than I.

    IU FANBORDEN seems like a good dude.....for an IU fan that is.:)

    I’ll give this a like because you used a UNC player as an example of a player that couldn’t work on his game because of class.

    Didnt read it all but I would add 2006 Uconn. Team was loaded with good college talent and terrible chemistry. And of course stupid GM made their run. F those guys.

    Considering I got kicked out of a thread for stating my opinion, even including my favorite team in that opinion, means someone got butt hurt.

    You should be grateful for the leeway they're giving you IMO.

    Regroup,rethink priorities and come back. You clearly know UK basketball and can talk basketball with all of us. Make jokes, have fun, you're smart aren't you?

    I'd suck as a mod.
