Wiltjer #6
You can make a case that no college player last season had more of an impact on offense than Wiltjer, who stands a fair chance of closing out his college career with a Wooden Award. His shots simply go in, and they do so from both sides of the arc.


Sabonis #24
Though he made just one start as a freshman (against Texas Southern), Sabonis is a highly effective scorer at the rim and a tenacious rebounder. The 6-foot-11 power forward will likely be a first-round pick in 2016.

Karno #53
Few players epitomize the college-to-pro dichotomy better than the 7-foot-1 Karnowski, who elicits polite silence from scouts but inflicts unspeakable damage on opposing defenses in the West Coast Conference.

...and Ryan Spangler #83

If they make that list half-way through the year, I firmly believe Perkins would at least squeeze in top 75, if not higher.

Also weird comment about Karno. I would think that a guy with his size, and serviceable hands, etc. would at least get a look at being a defensive wall of the bench with 6 fouls to give.

Three of our guys in D1 college ball's (approximately) Top-50? How awesome is that?

A thought regarding Mt. Karno: This fan really likes Robert Sacre and was overjoyed when LA took him as the last pick (60th) in his year's draft. Big Rob made the team and has been a Laker ever since. In my extremely limited opinion, it sure seems Shem has better feet, better handles, is a better scorer, and is a constant improver on D. He's also bigger. How, then, does Shem not also get drafted by an NBA team and make its squad?

:000tens: Karnowski's an NBA pro-type player. :000tens:

Sacre's athleticism and ability to guard quicker athletes on the perimeter/pick & roll fits very well with the NBA game as a specialist. While I think Karnowski is a better basketball player, I don't think he is as suited for that type of role as Sacre was, and thus his NBA draft potential is probably slightly less.

But he has size and skill and is on the fringe. It'd be cool if he gets a shot and makes the most of it (otherwise, I think we will see him as a starter in Europe being very successful over there).

Well I feel it could have been a problem if PK would not improve his game BUT - and I was writing about that earlier - Shem looks improved in his FT in FIBA games and it seems to me like he will improve with FT's year by year. I bet he will be about .600 by the end of this year and within next few years ca .69-.71^ type of player. IMO it is more than enough since he will provide enough efficiency and any sort of hack-a-Shem type of tactics would not work.

I am so happy that you guys appreciate PK. I wish it would be possible to find a spot for both Sabonis and Karnowski in one NBA team ... I have this feeling that they could create incredibly efficient and funny to watch duo.
