This is something that Jordan started last week, causing him to build a shrine dedicated to Morehead State forward Kenneth Faried (very similar to this).
College basketball has been one of my greatest loves since the early 2000 Maryland Terrapin squads containing the likes of Steve Blake, Chris Wilcox, Lonny Baxter, Byron Mouton, Drew Nicholas and some guy named Juan Dixon. I know for a fact that Mike shares this passion with me and could probably name every single Division 1 player off the top of his head. Derek is right along with us, although he doesn't count because he works for Draft Express (sellout!). We're still working on Jordan.
There are some excellent games on today with tons of NBA talent in the mix. As I'm typing this, Philadelphia native Marcus Morris is rock chalkin' his way to a possible lottery selection against USC on ESPN. Morris' hotshot freshman teammate Josh Selby is making his debut in this one (projected lottery pick as well).
