Default Re: Who would be your pre-season All-American 1st and 2nd Teams?

Straight off the top of my head:

1st team:

-Sherron Collins, KU
-John Wall, UK
-Evan Turner, tOSU
-Derrick Favors, GT
-Greg Monroe, G'Town

2nd team:

-Kalin Lucas, MSU
-Willie Warren, OU
-Damion James, UT
-Patrick Patterson, UK
-Cole Aldrich, KU

3rd team:

-Isaiah Thomas, UW
-Avery Bradley, Texas
-Tyler Smith, Tenn.
-Kyle Singler, Duke
-Jujuan Johnson, Purdue

4th team:

-E'Twaun Moore, Purdue
-Manny Harris, UM
-James Anderson, OSU
-Craig Brackins, ISU
-Jarvis Varnado, Miss. St.

5th team:

-Kemba Walker, UConn
-Tyshawn Taylor, KU
-Al-Farouq Aminu, Wake
-Mike Davis, Ill.
-Ed Davis, UNC


I include freshmen because a)it's meaningless guesswork anyway, and b)I don't think it's right to include them in my reasoning for my Top 25 (which is still currently at 20) and leave them off a preseason All-America team if I think they'll be that good.

EDIT: I just realized I forgot Harangody. That's what you do when you go off the top of the head. He'd be either 2nd- or 3rd-team.

Devin Ebanks, Trevor Booker and Greivis Vasquez are three more that should be on there somewhere.

Moore could finally realize that actually trying helps, but I think it's pretty ambitious to put him anywhere near AA status. I think Hummel has a better shot at it than him and even that's not really realistic, IMO. E'Twaun Moore is one of the more frustrating players I've watched in recent memory, doesn't help that he's on my team of course.

Also, I hate to be the "yeah...but..." guy so often. I just honestly don't retain a lot of info of guys that either aren't Boilers or potentially Pacers.

I know you said off the top of your head. How about Scottie Reynolds? He'd have to at least bump out Taylor if no one else. Lazar Hayward and possibly Arinze Onuaku I would consider in there. Tasmin Mitchell is also a guy that comes to mind. Not saying they should be on your lists, just throwing some names out there. Michael Washington, Jeremy Hazell, Gani Lawal...

Reynolds and Hayward are good calls but I'm not 100% sure that I'd take out Taylor in favor of Reynolds. I think Taylor might be a better player. It's like they cloned Mario Chalmers and put him right back in the same uniform the moment Chalmers left.
