Default Florida Gators think they can hang with NBA teams

Quote:
On Sunday, some members of the Florida Gators were asked whether they may be able to beat one of the bottom five clubs in the NBA.

"I don't know, it would be a lot of fun," said Florida's Corey Brewer. "We'd be competitive. I don't know if we'd win, but we'd be competitive."

"We'd get after it pretty good," said Al Horford. "We'd give them a run for their money."

"I think we'd do pretty well," said Taurean Green. "It's hard to say. These guys are the NBA."

"I don't know," said Lee Humphrey. "That's hard to say. All these guys are already in the NBA so you know they're talented. You don't know how many of our guys will be in the NBA. I think three definitely. I don't want to say we'd beat them."

Cubans response

Quote:
Mark Cuban disagrees with the assessments from the Gators.

"The best college team of the last 10 years," wrote Cuban in an e-mail, "would lose by 50 to any team at the bottom of the NBA."

That Cuban is so shy with his opinions.

When asked to explain further, Cuban said: "Because every guy on an NBA roster is better than 99 (percent) of guys on college rosters. They are more skilled, play harder and (are) bigger."

Despite the fact that almost every player in the NBA was the star of their college team you have to account for how much stronger NBA players are.

Even a guy like Corliss Williamson would WRECK any college defense.

on college rules, they can compete, and possibly win, against an nba team.


remember that team usa got beaten by foreign teams without nba-caliber players.

Thats because international rules are different and most of the international players are the same or close to the size of most NBA players, so I could see international teams beating some NBA teams but definetly not College, cause College the players get tired faster for some reason, imagine if they play a 48 minute game they will just die.

Can you imagine Noah trying to post up a guy like Shaq or D. Howard.... or Green trying to contain Nash... I bet if you took Kobe, D. Howard and Nash they could beat the starting 5 of Florida , I only pick Howard over Shaq or Yao because he has more speed and if they were to go 5 on 3 speed would be important

They use to have a Football game where the Superbowl champs played a college all star team every year, I can't remember what it was called or why they cancelled it...

Unless we are talking Kareems UCLA team(just for him I cant bet against them), the LJ/Stacey/Anthony UNLV teams, or the Duke teams with Hill and Laettner....the worst NBA teams destroy any college teams. Wait...didnt UNC have Stackhouse and Sheed at the same time? Few extreme cases might give it a run. But nobody now. People said the same **** about UCONN last year.

Lets see... Memphis has Pau Gasol, Mike Miller, and Hakim Warrick who are all better than any of the Gators. Then they have Chucky Atkins, Rudy Gay Stromile Swift, Damon Stoudamire, Dahntay Jones, Kyle Lowry, etc.

As for Boston - they have Paul Pierce, Al Jefferson, and Wally Szczerbiak. Then they also have Gerald Green, Rajon Rondo, Delonte West, Tony Allen, Sebastian Telfair, Kendrick Perkins, Allan Ray, etc. They can easily beat Florida.

The unc team with worthy, jordan and perkins would have given it a shot. The unc team with Jamison and carter could have given it a shot too and the walton ucla teams could have given it a shot. Aside from them im not really seeing anyone with a prayer.

No matter what team you're talking about, 2-3 nba players vs 12 is NEVER a good idea

Right, 50 points is correct also if the 'bottom' teams are at full strength.

yeah you got a point bout the nba bodies, but if they play 40 mins instead of 48 (i said college rules ;p ), then the stamina might not be a problem.

just as long as you don't include the teams with shaq, dwight,eddy curry, etc heh
