Peppers at 10, which seems low.
Kind of a random topic but watching basketball tonight has made me think of Nik Stauskas, and for whatever reason I've been in an Olympics mood, so this thought came up. Obviously the US has the best national team, but I was thinking about it, and Canada could be really good in the coming years. Looking at the best players of their roster:
F/C Dwight Powell - Plays for Dallas
F Tristan Thompson - Cleveland
F Andrew Nicholson - Orlando
F/C Kelly Olynkyk - Boston
F Andrew Wiggins - Minnesota
G Nik Stauskas - Sacramento
G Tyler Ennis - Phoenix
G Cory Joseph - San Antonio
F Trey Lyles - Kentucky (Still in college)
And a few others.
The biggest thing I notice is that most of the players tend to be on the younger side with minimal NBA experience, but many of them have the potential to be top players. I could very well see this team qualifying for the 2016 Olympics and becoming a serious contender to the US in the coming years, much as the way Spain has been recently. The team also might lack some depth, but certainly the starters and some of the bench will be plenty talented.
A bit random of a topic, I admit, but I just thought I might share it with you all. Thoughts about this?
Michigan probably now has the best Football/Basketball coaching duo anywhere.
So let's enjoy this photo.
Michigan State just lost to Texas Southern (whose coach is former Indiana coach Mike Davis) 71-64 in overtime. Texas Southern had only 1 win coming into today (0 road wins).
In 1965, Michigan lost to UCLA in the NCAA title game. Why did we have the trophy in this photo?
