Eleven (yes, eleven) alums make NBA rosters

This of course includes the two-way contracts to Duncan, Derrick Walton, Darius Morris, but still this is amazing

I really hate how the Charlotte Hornets have yet to get one of these guys and now I have to watch stupid Miles Bridges just dunk and miss jump shots all season...

Had no idea Morris was back on an NBA team. Seems like it's a 2 way deal but still, good for him.

Also Walton is probably going to be one of my favorite Michigan players of all time. What he did the second half of his senior year was insane, and it reversed the Michigan/Beilein narrative of 3 straight under achieving seasons to now us being a national title contender again.

According to my analysis. I think it is good, but someone may prove otherwise. 


UM Players in NBA 8/(9),  Burke, Hardaway, LeVert, Robinson, Robinson, Stauskas, Wagner, Wilson, (Udoh if you count transfers)

UM Players not in NBA now with a chance to get picked up: Abdur-Rahkman, Crawford, Harris, Morris, Walton. 

For Reference, MSU Players in NBA 6, Bridges, Forbes, Green, Harris, Jackson, Randolph.

Can you imagine what the list would look like if Beilein were allowed to play on a level playing field, ie pay the players like other teams do?

I am convinced we'd be the Alabama of basketball.
