My family seems to think UNC can do no wrong. So I would say on their behalf, Carolina.

North Carolinia - although they do have one player now who seems to be receiving lots of accolades now but I dont think he will be that great in the pros. He'll probably be the next Christian Laettner in the pros.

It sounds as if you believe Christian Laettner was a failure in the NBA...he wasn't at all. He had 8 very productive seasons - 4 with the Minnesota Timberwolves (17.5 ppg) and 4 with the Atlanta Hawks (15.5 ppg), during which time he made the 1992 All-Rookie Team and the 1996-97 All-Star Team...and he played in 6 NBA post seasons with Atlanta, Detroit, and Miami. He also won an Olympic Gold Medal with the 1992 Dream Team in Barcelona.

After he tore his achilles tendon during the 1998 season he really wasn't the same player, having 5 forgetable seasons and being traded between the Wizards, Pistons, Warriors, Mavericks, and Heat.

Although not headed for the Hall of Fame, he had a respectable and successful NBA career.

I think UNC would be #1, Kentucky has a legit claim for #2.

Rajon Rondo is the starting PG for the reigning champion Boston Celtics. Jamaal Magloire, Keith Bogans, Kelena Auzibuike, Chuck Hayes, and Nazr Muhammad are all important role players on their teams.

Well then I gave Hansbrough more credit than I think he deserves. I dont think he will be that good in the pros. I just dont.
