    Burke and Teske in pick and roll would be so fun to watch.

    PG: Scottie Wilbekin/Chris Chiozza/Erving Walker/Kasey Hill
    SG: Bradley Beal/Kenny Boynton/KeVaugn Allen
    SF: Chandler Parson/Kasey Prather/Devin Robinson
    PF: Dorian Finney-Smith/
    C Patrick Young/ Vernon Macklin/Kevarrius Hayes

    Parsons (2011) & Wilbekin (2014) were SEC POY's!
    Beal was a 2012 lottery pick, selected 3rd (behind #1 Anthony Davis)
    Boynton (3rd in career scoring at UF: 2030 pts)
    Allen (1723 pts, 7th in career scoring))
    Walker (1777 pts, 6th in career scoring)
    Chiozza was the all-time UF assist leader (571 A)
    Hayes was 2nd in career blocked shots (218).

    Florida had quite a few 4-year starters that made the school record books!

    I know his stats and all, but it’ll never not be weird to see Scheyer’s name next to Zion Williamson.

    TJD is really good, but not sure he's better than senior year Watford, Bryant, or Vonleh. He's right there though.

    leaving off Watford was tough. Bryant , though talented, played soft, whined to damn much, and thought at times he was a damn guard. Vonleh, IMO, isn't close to TJD. IMO, TJD knows what he's good at. plays within his capabilities, very seldom trying to do what he cannot. Plus, dude is a rebounding machine.
    I loved CW. But he played "slow".

    Maybe, but let's not forget who he played behind the year before his breakout year.

    I guess his rebounding might give him the edge though.

    College. He was averaging 12ppg/6rpg before being injured, vs PSU. He had strong games vs Kansas(13/8), 16/6 vs UNC...14/5 vs Louisville. He was having a good year, and IMO was probably on his way to at worst, 2nd team Big 10. His injury, lack of playing, as a sophomore, overshadow's how good he was.

    PG-Kendall Marshall (tough call over Joel Berry)
    SG-Cam Johnson
    SF-Harrison Barnes (tough call over Theo Pinson)
    PF-Brice Johnson (tough call over Henson)
    C-Tyler Zeller (tough call over Kennedy Meeks)

    Agree with yours, except I’d put Paige at SG over Cam.

    UNC

    pg) Joel Berry
    sg) Theo Pinson
    sf) Justin Jackson
    pf) Bryce Johnson
    c) Kennedy Meeks

    You could go several different directions with pg, pf, and center imo. I went mostly with guys whos game I liked, and or won a title. You could have gone Zeller at center, or Henson at PF. I also thought about Kendall Marshall at PG. I like Jackson over Barnes also.

    Yeah, I didn't think about Paige as a SG. That could work. He is right there with Berry as a choice for PG after KM as well.

    10 AP All-Americans for Duke this decade. 6 of them were 1st Team. Jabari would be relegated to the 2nd Team, for me at least, because his defense left a lot to be desired.

    1st Team All-Americans:
    Nolan Smith, 2011
    Jabari Parker, 2014
    Jahlil Okafor, 2015
    Marvin Bagley, 2018
    Zion Williamson, 2019
    RJ Barrett, 2019

    2nd Team All-Americans:
    Jon Scheyer, 2010
    Mason Plumlee, 2013
    Luke Kennard, 2017

    3rd Team All-Americans
    Grayson Allen, 2016

    I think if it’s college only you gotta go Cousins over Towns.

    College only I’d go:

    Tyler Ulis (yes Ulis. Played 2 years. Played on a Final Four team, Cousy award winner, consensus 1st team aa, sec dpoy and poy, single season assist record holder)
    Doron Lamb (back to back final fours and a ship. Best 3 pt shooter in program history by percentage)
    Michael Kidd Gilchrist
    Julius Randle
    Anthony Davis

    I would go Davis/Cousins front court if Davis played power forward in college. Randle was no slouch however. Had 24 double doubles as a freshman which tied the UK record. He’s the type of player the last few UK teams have really been missing. A guy we could throw the ball to in the front court that could just make something happen.

    Karl was a beast by February.

    I toyed with Cousins in my head, but also thought about WCS and Davis at a 4/5 split.

    Randle isn’t a bad pick either. Lots of people forget about his production.

    I would find a way to add Tyus Jones in there somewhere. He was just too damn good in his year at Duke to leave out IMO.

    Parkers' defense was offensive.

    Could be, though with KM Barnes would work better. If you had a Cole Anthony at PG (or maybe even a Berry) then a guy like Pinson would work better IMO because he was so good at getting other players in position to score, especially the bigs. He wasn't a great scorer but was great at everything else. You need those guys in your lineup. I'm admittedly a huge Pinson guy though. There was always just a difference in how the team looked when he was in the game. It is probably a bit of an emotional decision though.

    I'm not arguing that he was better than Harrison though. He clearly was not. I was just looking at how all the pieces would work together. The strength of that team regardless is getting the ball to the bigs and working off that.

    Ah okay, so you were thinking of building a legit team, and not just the best guys of the decade at each position, gotcha.

    Nish, I like this. Singler is tough to leave off, as are Tyus and Jah... could Kyle take Justise’s spot? But hard to argue against Jon and Nolan. Marvin was SO good (although I saw someone picked Carter, and man I don’t mind that pick at all.)
