    All time basketball draft from 1980 to present

    Jon Miller and Corey Coon had a mock draft today, for the all time college basketball team. Rules included: your selection had to be a senior in 1980, (no Bird and no Magic) to present day, and you had to fill all positions. Also, NO players that spent only one year in college before he went to the NBA. At least two playing years, please.

    Who do you think would win, and do you have any other suggestions?

    Aclone, where are you? What do you think?
    (Where the heck is Jordan?)

    Thank you.


    Jon Miller's Team
    Ralph Sampson
    Christian Laettner
    Glenn Rice
    Chris Webber

    I'm pretty sure they both failed at filling all positions. Lots of bigs in there.

    Nope, no MJ, and Jon had the first pick.
    He, (Jon Miller) was the first to mention Jordan, when he was speaking of who to select for reserves! Hmmmmmmmmm.
    How come Jon?

    In addition to Jordan and Duncan, I think Jason Kidd is a glaring ommission. I would take him over any of the point guards listed.

    I agree. There was a lot of "center/forward" and "forward/guard" talk.

    I don't think Jordan makes the list based only on his college days...

    Duncan and Jordan were in the conversation, by both of them, but I don't think Jason was.
    Who would fill out your team, and who do you think would win?

    Off the top of my head I would go with:

    Jason Kidd
    Michael Jordan
    Glen Robinson
    Danny Manning
    Tim Duncan

    Of course, if I keep thinking about it, I would probably change my mind about 50 times over the next few hours.
