This is the biggest upset I've seen in my life.

Wow, Middle Tennessee! THIS IS MARCH!

I feel bad for Denzel Valentine. His final year is cut short.

But, that's the beauty and the curse of March. You blink, you could be dead.

I don't know, it seemed like an obvious change, since they couldn't stop those high energy bigs from tennessee.

Anyways, just positive things from Valentine, I'm taking him with the Mavs pick

Idiotic play by Iowa fouling on that 3.  This game is about to hit OT now because of it.

The think about Brown is that his intangibles are also a red flag so I'd pass. Can't play + no effort no please

Yeah.

I'm all for drafting guys who can play the 3, but I think there'll be better options for that in the middle of the 1st round.   You have to be able to shoot and defend to be a 3-and-D guy, and there's no telling if Brown will be able to do either.


This Michigan State game is funny.

A team of teenagers getting beaten up by a team featuring fully grown men.  Darnell Harris is 24 years old.  About the same age as half of the Celtics roster.  He'll be selling cars or adjusting insurance claims a couple years from now.
But right now he just busted a #2 seed and made those "teenagers" (Their 3 best players, Costello, Valentine and Forbes, are all 22) cry. I take it you're a Spartans fan?

Just positive things? Six turnovers and sitting too much because of foul trouble could definitely be construed as negatives.

Oh. Iowa beats Temple on a buzzer beating follow up. Wow.

Nothing hurts more than that...

I just think it's funny.  NCAA basketball is a big mess, but for two weeks every year we pretend its exciting and the results of this tourney mean something.

Ok? The results of every sports game don't actually mean anything, and you have posted 12144 times pretending the NBA means something.

I'm definitely biased but Malachai Richardson of Syracuse is gonna be a baller.  Already is pretty good for the college level.

Friends don't let friends draft Syracuse players.

Let them waste somebody else's money learning how to play NBA ball their first 4-5 years in the league.

Yeah, but I find draft talk tedious.  Just enjoying the games.

And really enjoying that Cuse has Middle Tennessee instead of Michigan St.  Though they could drop that one too.

Yeah, that's the thing, I think the NBA is much more interesting and meaningful than NCAA basketball.  I really don't care about the NCAA as more than a passing amusement except for scouting potential NBA prospects. 

Shocker, I hold that opinion as a frequent poster on an NBA fan forum.
