Which player that went to the league from Highschool would you have loved to see play college basketball.
I would have loved to see Kevin Garnett play in the NCAA
I also would have liked to see Garnett play in college, for I believe at least one of his possible destinations was the University of Michigan. Louis Bullock, Maceo Baston, Robert Traylor, Maurice Taylor, and Kevin Garnett all on the same team? And perhaps had Garnett signed on, maybe Mateen Cleaves would have come to Ann Arbor as well. And then maybe the born leader Kevin Garnett would have been there to say, "You know what Robert, maybe you and 'Teen shouldn't go for a ride in that SUV you didn't pay for tonight", thus not leading to the flip over accident that ultimately uncovered the Ed Martin scandal and left the program in ruins for years.
If LeBron had spent a season in the NCAA his rookie season would have been 27/7/7 if not better! If he spent two years in the NCAA 31/7/7 (GOAT rookie season...). Three years 27/7/7, and four years 30/8/7 again GOAT rookie campaign.
PG - Sebastian Telfair, I think Rick Pitino would have done wonders for Telfair.
SG - Kobe Bryant, I think it would have been a humbling experience that removed a bit of the aura of entitlement he had as a young player.
SF - LeBron James, because I always wondered where he would have gone. Everyone knows he loves Ohio State but with Dru Joyce and Romeo Travis both going to Akron U I think he may have decided to stay in Akron.
Side Note: If that happened I think it would have turned NCAA recruiting on it's head. Players would now understand that there are no secrets in terms of NCAA to NBA scouting. If you can hoop people will find you. I think you would have seen more and more guys picking their local/regional schools.
PF - Kevin Garnett, he would have selected Michigan. The team they had would have been insane.
C - Kwame Brown, I think Billy Donovan would have help Kwame become the player he should have become.
