OT: Big10 (mostly michigan) "The Basketball Tournament" team

Submitted by wardcrazy01894 on May 14th, 2018 at 11:14 AM

For those who don't know, "The Basketball Tournament" is a tournament where former NBA and NCAA basketball players compete for $2,000,000. It's a really cool way to see your former favorite NCAA players or old NBA players or random overseas players. (more info on the tournament here https://www.thetournament.com/

Anyways, the Big10 made a pretty formidable team for the tournament of former big 10 players featuring primarily michigan men. I now definitely have a team to root for! Check out their roster here https://www.thetournament.com/teams/big-x (I wonder if they will also be undefeated with Duncan scoring more than 6)

 

The fan side of the tournament: 

Part of the tournament is fan involvement. So the teams with the top fan support can get some special treatment, but more importantly for us, the fans get 10% of the $2,000,000. So the top 201 fans of the winning team split $200,000!!! So register as a fan of this team to help them out and hopefully win some cash yourself

Shameless plug alert: also, if you sign up as a "fan" of this team please use my referral code

I must say that I had a good laugh over this.  

 

"Skechers' lawsuit claims that Adidas' alleged misbehavior has irreparably harmed its footing in the basketball marketplace."

Subject of the front page, there is a run on both of these players for Michigan today.  Four each, and some are VIP, but given the prediction timeline it looks like they're all Michigan. 

Go to the link below and look under the Crystal Ball Predictions section on the right.  Includes Sam Webb and some other legit-seeming prognosticators.

You are invited to attempt to not confuse these names with DJ Wilson over and over again. 

 

EDIT:

Jalen Wilson a 5* to 247, #15 player in the country(!). 4* to 247 Composite, #28 player in the country (#27 is a 5*).  #4 and #8 SF, respectively.

According to @_ARHoops on Twitter, potential Witichita State transfer Austin Reaves will not be visiting Michigan this weekend.  I would like to think this means someone else has quietly taken his potential spot.  Please embed for the board (damn paywall!)

Reading up this morning on the GOAT debate over at ESPN, and was just curious to which camp you are all in? It maybe a generation thing, but I think MJ's path to success was more....."un-artficial" 

MJ didn't have "decisions" and hop around to teams to chase championships. He made his teamates better, not his situation better. What do you all think? 

Go Blue!

Jerry Meyer, Director of Basketball Scouting for 247, just put in a CB for Jalen Wilson to Michigan last night after Wilson released his top 6. This is obviously an important CB to receive and is a good sign for us. Jalen Wilson is 5*, #15 player overall according to 247 and a 4*, #28 player and the highest ranked 4* in the 247 composite rankings.

Elite 2019 SF prospect from TX, ranked #28 in 247's composite rankings. Michigan has one of the three Crystal Ball picks so far. Other finalists are Baylor, Kansas, Marquette, Oklahoma State, and UCLA. He is supposed to be visiting this coming weekend, according to reporting from late last month.

I don’t know...it’s late in the home time zone so I thought I’d post it. But Lebron hit another buzzer beater tonight. I don’t root for him or the Cavs but he is a freak of nature. All I can say is im glad he was never a Buckeye. https://screengrabber.deadspin.com/cleveland-takes-3-0-series-lead-on-l…
