    CBS slurped up this team:

    I think I will pick 10 alphabetically by position:

    PG: Releford UAL, Wilbekin UF
    SG: Henderson UMs, McRae UTn
    SF: Finney-Smith UF, Poythress UK
    PF: Stokes UTn, O'Bryant LSU
    C: Cauley-Stein UK, Young UF

    I see why CBS went with 3 guards as the pickings are not great a SF. But there are so many PF types, I found two SFs for my list.

    Alphabetical order means I did not pick among the two players at each position.

    I don't' see why Fraizer couldn't' end up getting votes for this. I think he's a big key for Florida this year. I agree about DFS possibly, but I'm as suspicious of transfers as you are of freshmen.

    I also dont' see how Randle can't be on the list. Most assume he'll be a top 2 pick (or close) in the draft next year. If that ends up being true, I can't imagine their is much precedent for being that high a pick and not being all conference in the SEC. The recent UK players picked that high were Wall, Cousins, MKG and Davis. I don't remember specifically for each, but I'd have to think they ended up top two at their position in the league.

    I would pick Randle as pre-season player of the year in the SEC.

    Randle was the other UK guy I was tempted to put on, but who do I take of O'Bryant or Stokes? They are both proven high all conference level college players.

    I would not call Randle player of the year pre-season, but I do recognize it is not out of the realm of possibilities that he could be the player of the year. Many other guys could be too.

    Randle could sit the whole year and be a top-5 lottery pick

    As I said a couple of years ago when I saw Randle at the City of Palms, the kid could start in the NBA back then (as a high school junior). Nevertheless, he will not have played against a defender like Wil Yeguete. We will need to get UK into a halfcourt offense. If we do that, we will beat them if we have a healthy and complete roster. Our defense should be a lot better than Kentucky's defense.

    Hard not to dream about a parallel universe where we successfully recruited Randle.

    We are not playing lottery picks here, but college basketball. My own view is the clear number 1 prospect in the class of 2013 is Chris Walker.

    He may not go number 1 next year as he is not as polished as some others. He is however the tallest of the potential number 1s next year and the most athletic. Scouts know that skills will come with repetition, but you can not coach size or athleticism into a player.

    There's a long way to go before the season starts for henderson to stay out of trouble.

    Will Chris Walker play this season? And if not, will he simply declare for the draft?

    While true, Kennedy sure seems hell-bent on making sure Henderson plays. I certainly expect to see him this year.



    On Walker being the top prospect - you can definitely make that argument. Walker is a freak and has incredible size/length for his athletic ability. This is a tough class though. I'd put him somewhere in the top 5 of the class athletically. There are just a lot of freaky players in this class. Wiggins, Randle, Gordon and Vonleh are in his class athletically also IMO. Vonleh, we'll see. Many people compare Gordon to Blake Griffin. Most measurements have Randle only being an inch shorter than Walker. And I don't see anyone in the class being a better athlete than Wiggins. Parker isn't the athlete these others are, but he's more skilled than any of them probably. I'd even throw in Embid as being a tremendous prospect (an underrated one). If he's a one and done guy, I don't think missing on him will end up a big deal. But he sure would be nice to have on UF's roster in 2014.

    Yeah but...is Patric completely free of any pain (tendonitis) now?
    Has his ankle healed?

    Yes, I was really impressed by Parker in the all-star games I saw.

    What impressed me most about Randle was his competitiveness. He's a battler.

    After seeing some highlights, I figured Wiggins would blow me away in the all-star games. But, he just seemed like another very good player to me in those games.

    I was very pleased and impressed by what I saw out of Walker. He looked like he's very competitive also and could be a defensive stopper!

    I wouldn't be surprised if our (but not your :joecool:) other Gator, Hill, doesn't end up a lottery pick also after watching those all-star games. Very fast and knows how to handle/pass like a true PG.

    Is it THAT much of a joke?

    Here's what I can see if I'm looking at the stats right:

    Young - WCS
    Minutes: 26.5 23.5
    Points: 10.1 8.3
    Rebounds: 6.3 6.2
    FG%: 59% 62%
    Blocks (total) 58 60


    Those look close to me. Keep in mind, some of WCS's minutes came playing out of position alongside Noel (which was dumb IMO). As insti has pointed out also, WCS potentially has more reason to assume greater improvement, being younger.

    I'm not trying WCS is better - just that I don't see it as being idiotic to pick either over the other.

    Don't see how Wilbekin would be in the top two in the conference at PG. I'd put money on both Harrison and a certain Gator freshman being better than him by season's end. Nothing against him personally but i have admittedly never been high on Wilbekin's game.

    It's not idiotic. What doesn't show up in the stats is Patric's defense, especially his help defense on switches, which is extraordinary. If Patric can learn to use his strength down low on offense, he will become a very wealthy man. He has been too much of a finesse player when he gets the ball down low.
