    They had guys like Michael Roth that were not prototypical professionals but were nasty good in college. I remember reading a Keith Law article about UCLA and how it is better to have top draft picks than college titles. Clearly everyone wants both but I would definitely side with college titles.

    It is a bit sad not to see Laporta on there.
