i've watched EVERY final 4 and championship gm since 1987 and this is the LEAST talented national champion in basketball i have ever seen

go through it year by year in the late 80s, all of the 90's, all of the 2000's, and even last yr's Duke team

UCONN has the LEAST talent man for man that i have seen in 25 straight championships

All credit to Jim Calhoun and a WEAK field, but UConn was also lucky to not have to play any 1, 2, or 3 seeds along the way

BS.  They've got at least 2 first rounders on this team.  Not every team has had that.

Kemba Walker 1st round draft pick, National MVP, best player in country. Jeremy Lamb top 3 freshman in the country, budding Super Star in college ball and potential lottery pick in a year or 2.

Thread Starter your're an idiot

NBA SCOUTS AND GM'S RATE KEMBA WALKER A 2ND ROUND PICK AT BEST

Walker = GREAT college player, not much NBA potential, which is why he has stayed 3 years and will stay another year

Kemba Walker and who else?

Lamb is not a first round draft pick.  Please stop it.

If Lamb is not a first round pick whenever he comes out, then teams are making a mistake.

you are aware that NBA talent no longer spends 4 years in college right? Comparing the 80s to today. Smoke some more reefer clown.

One wrong statement here is saying UConn didn't play any 1,2, or 3 seeds.  UConn beat a pretty talented and athletic San Diego St team which was a 2 seed.

UConn definitely has a lot of talent.  It's just young talent.  Lamb would not be drafted if he were to enter the draft this year but he is only a freshmen.  By the time hes done at UConn he will definitely be drafted.  Napier should also develop into a pretty damn good player.  Just because they dont have 1 and done guys does not mean they don't have talent.  You dont rip through the big east tournament beating 4 ranked teams in 4 days then run through the NCAA Tournament without being a top end talented team.  Ludicrous post.

Just looked up a few mock drafts and I see him in the 10 to 15 range.  No way this tourney has hurt him.  WTF are you talking about?

He will be a lottery pick. No GM rates him as a 2nd rounder, you are way off.

Lamb is a first round pick when he comes out. I was talking to a Chicago Bulls scout and he said they would draft him this year if he came out in the 2nd round and he siad they thought Lamb is the most talented and best player on the team.

kemba has a great first step, but not a consistent 3 pt shooter, not a great defender, and has short arms which will really hurt him in the NBA, this is what the NBA scouts and gm's are saying

Welcome to the "One and Done Era" of College BBall.  Only guys who can't make the NBA end up being Seniors.  Wish Haywood wouldn't of came out early.

He reminds me of a VERY poor man's Scottie Pippen.  If he were a couple inches taller he'd be top 10 material.

by far the worst final I've seen in the last 15 years.
Butler lost this game... UConn did not win it shooting 35%.  Butler shot an ameobic 20%. THAT is friggin sad!

At least I was able to cash in on 2nd half under.
