Basketball is turning into a shithole in general. Nobody wants to work for their titles. Everybody wants to take the shortcut.

So, if a kid wants to play for Kentucky, he should just change his plans because another good player also wants to play for Kentucky?

Well the thought is the reason they are choosing Kentucky is cause they are stacked and have the easiest path to a title.

Also because it's the easiest path to the NBA. I can't blame anyone for choosing Kentucky at this point. It's working.

These kids don't give a **** if we think they're taking shortcuts and they shouldn't.

They're going to get noticed by the NBA wherever they go. Nate Wolters goes to friggin' South Dakota State, and I bet he'll be a first round pick next year.

I'm the biggest Nate Wolters fan you're ever going to talk to, and I'll bet you 100 internet dollars he's not a first round pick next year. It's not a given he'll be drafted at all.

There are some schools who develop players better for the NBA than others, Calipari's track record doesn't lie.

I don't buy it. It's not like guys are lining up to join forces just anywhere. The top coaches in the nation get the top talent. Teams like Kentucky or UNC being stacked each year is more of the effect than the cause here.

Even if I were to grant you that the best player from SD State will be drafted in the 1st round, what about their 3rd of 4th best player? Because the powerhouse schools are able to get those guys to the NBA.

If the 3rd or 4th best player at SD State should be drafted, he will be.

Powerhouses are powerhouses (and thus loaded with tons of NBA talent) because that's the kind of talent they get, not because of their reputation.

It does lie in a sense. Wall, Tyreke, Cousins, Davis, etc still would have excelled no matter where they went to school. None of us can say with a straight face that the reason Derrick Rose is an MVP is thanks to Cal.

This is my main complaint about the NBA now. Everyone wants to be buddy buddy and team up because they want to win. It's going to be tough for any of the smaller market teams to get good because even if they do draft a star, odds are they will ***** and moan for them to trade them to a team in one of the glamor cities. It's really destroying competitive parity.

One day, that will change. Do you ever think Michael Jordan would want to play with somebody who was a top 5 NBA player? No, he'd want to compete with them.

I see it being an issue in the NBA, but not really in college. Guys aren't going to Kentucky to play on a stacked team and compete for a national championship, at least that's not the primary reason. They want to play in the league, and Calipari has proved that he gets guys there, he gets them there quickly, and they find success in the NBA afterwards. It's a great pitch and because he does it so well even the guys who don't necessarily have huge years still end up being first round picks, and then a bunch more spots open up for top tier recruits the following year.

I'm not a Kentucky fan at all, but looking at it from the perspective of a high school kid who wants to play in the NBA it makes a lot of sense. They're not done this year either. Randle is likely, plus rumors Wiggins is going to reclassify and likely commit to UK also (FSU is pretty much the only other school in the mix for him). Would be a crazy class.

Thats not entirely accurate. Sure some guys want to win at all cost and want to compete for championships. But this nothing new. Kareem asked to be traded from Milwaukee back in the day for the same reason. Now maybe LBJ, Wade, and Bosh have always wanted to play together but its mostly GMs who are trying piece together the best team possible. It's always been hard for smaller markets to keep their stars. Even in the 70's and 80's this was true.

Jabari Parker's new top 5 is Duke, Stanford, BYU, Florida, and Michigan State. At least 1 of the top prospects is smart.

@Bama: Check Rivals.com. If they're one of the top HS prospects, then they're an NBA prospect also.

I appreciate it. It's just hard to guage them by their short little highlight videos on their profile.

Would be cool to see a team get two high lotto picks and get both Harrison twins.

It's always been hard for smaller markets to keep their stars. Even in the 70's and 80's this was true.
Can't argue with you there, but I guess I just grew up in the 90s, where it felt like the stars were spread out a bit more and it didn't feel like such a buddy buddy league, but rather that you needed to beat the best in order to be the best (rather than the 'if you can't be them, join them' attitude that I feel seems prevalent today). It's also not that players are demanding to be traded, its that they have a very select few placed they'd like to be traded to, which not only makes the rich richer, but also holds the franchise hostage a bit and doesn't allow them to necessarily get the best offer they can. I also honestly feel like the idea of a max contract has urged this on in the sense that the top players aren't getting paid nearly as much as they are worth. Clearly players like Lebron could fetch a lot more on the open market, but the establishment of a max deal allows teams to afford multiple superstars, rather than making them budget around one. Just my personal opinion.

Sorry this is very off topic in this thread now.
