2020 Basketball Eligibles

Andre Miller is one of the best professional basketball players who was never was chosen for the All Star Game.  Miller was a former WAC Player of the Year (1999) and as an NBA player the former 8th overall Draft Pick of 1999 would later win the NBA Assists title in the 2001-02 season and was in the top ten in that stat seven other times.  The Guard would have four NBA seasons where he…
A two-time NBA All Star, Caron Butler garnered significant attention when in 2002 he led UConn to an Elite 8 appearance and was named the co-Big East Player of the Year.  He would be selected by the Miami Heat as a lottery pick but it was when he moved to the Washington Wizards where he would have his greatest individual success.  The Small Forward would have a pair of 20 Points per Game seasons (2006-07…
Honesty, this one is a little tough for us. It is not that we don’t think that Chris Bosh should be ranked at this spot.  We do.  It just is we aren’t positive that he is exactly eligible…or that he even wants to be right now.
The seven foot tall and somewhat geeky Chris Kaman was a star at Central Michigan and he would be named the MAC Player of the Year in 2003, which would propel him to being the sixth overall pick by the Los Angeles Clippers.  At the time that Chris Kaman played for the Clippers, they were…well the Clippers, and he wasn’t on very many good teams though he would do enough to be noticed for an…
While Jason Richardson was never an All Star, he was a very good player who dazzled fans of the Golden State Warriors with his hustle and intensity.  Richardson was a sweet shooter from behind the arc and in his first season as a member of the Charlotte Bobcats, he would lead the NBA in Three Pointers.  With a career PER of 16.8 and a trio of seasons with a Points per Game average over 20,…
Kenyon Martin (or K-Mart) as he was known as, would emerge as an efficient two way forward in the NBA and put up a few good seasons with the New Jersey Nets and later the Denver Nuggets. Martin would showcase versatility and defensive acumen and was considered one of the better defensive players in the NBA during his tenure.
Kevin Garnett was the first player drafted in twenty years to come from prep to pro.  There were many who were concerned that this was too far a leap for anyone to make.  They needn’t have worried.
While there have been some valid criticisms of Kobe Bryant one thing can never be argued is his intense desire to win.
Tim Duncan was a superstar on the court, but so quiet off of it that as great as he was and as sure he will enter the Basketball Hall on his first ballot, he might be the most underrated player of all time.  We won't do that here as we will actually rank him AHEAD of the more popular Kobe Bryant, who is also a lock for the Hall on his first attempt.
