    We don’t know that.

    This conversation will end up going nowhere but if we’re now bringing up talent as a comparison then what about Grant Hill, Elton Brand, Jay Williams and Zion Williamson? Is Issel better at basketball than them? I wouldn’t say any of those guys were better college players than Laettner but they were better talents.

    Dan Issel was a great player. In a more restrictive game he is still UK's leading scorer. Most big men can't do what big Dan did.

    edit:

    Issel's Soph year he averaged 16.4 and UK had a record of 22-5 and won the SEC.
    Issel's Junior year he averaged 26.6 and UK had a record of 23-5 and won the SEC.
    Issel's Senior year he averaged 33.9 and UK had a record of 26-2 and won the SEC.

    That is the mark of a great player. Plus he did well in the ABA and NBA.

    MSU: One change over Cash and I loved Cash so I can't argue including him. I just think Draymond right there for that last spot

    1. Magic Johnson
    2. Tom Izzo
    3. Mateen Cleaves
    4. Draymond Green
