    I as well thought gooden would be a stud in the nba, bc he was amazing in college. IMO he lacked the elite athleticism and lateral quickness to be a dominate player in the NBA. Still a helluva nba career and plenty of paychecks to prove it I’m sure.

    Very good one as well, he was damn near impossible to score on down low.

    I also expected Emeka Okafor to have a larger impact in the nba as well, but he did at least stick around the league for a while.

    Uconn had a ridiculous amount of rim protectors come thru there under Calhoun.

    Earl had all the tools to be a great player, just personality wise he was a bit too laid back, didn’t have that internal drive and competitiveness or alpha/mamba mentality that the great ones have/had. His skill set And measurables were pretty impressive though, hence him being a lottery pick out of college.
