Charles Barkley is not a college basketball expert, but he plays one on TV during Selection Sunday for the NCAA Tournament. Barkley, however, is an expert about something else.
Barkley isn't wrong
for sure, pac12 is surely better...
That isn't what he was saying. He's saying the Big Ten might be the first or second best conference, but its really not as loaded as people make it out to be. Charles also bases most of his thoughts on teams based on their NBA talent and besides Indiana and probably Michigan, the Big Ten teams aren't loaded with NBA talent.
um, he said the pac12 and MWC would go further in the tourny.
Not sure what you watched this year, but there is plenty of NBA talent in the B1G.
I am watching UCLA get smoked by an average Minny (B1G standards) squad who BTW have 2 future NBA players.
Maybe you should stick to sanctions and leave the BBall Qs to us
He meant than some of the Big 10 teams and he was right. Wisconsin for example is out already and Oregon and San Diego State are still in. He wasn't saying teams in the MWC and Pac 12 are better than Indiana.
they aren't better than the top 4-5 in the B10.
NBA talent? seriously? I guess the guy can predict the future that "NBA" talent is pretty much unstoppable for UCLA tonight.
I'm talking real NBA talent man, not late 2nd round guys like Minnesota has. Indiana has two top ten picks on the team and Michigan has possibly 3 NBA 1st rounders.
Indiana has several lottery picks. scUM has a few. If DT stays and Ross continues to grow, tOSU has a couple. ... yep, no NBA talent. Just because PedoState is irrelevant is no reason to agree with a complete retard.
Charles specifically mentioned that some of the Big 10 teams were good. He wasn't saying the better Big 10 teams are worse than any other conference.
You are full of irrelevant FAIL.
"The Big Ten is overrated. They got a bunch of good teams, but to win the national championship. . . you have to have a great player. Now Michigan has got a great player. . . . Michigan State has great players. Indiana. The rest of them are just good teams"
Whatever you are talking about doesn't amount to spit. This ain't the NBA. In March, the scoreboard is all that matters. Good luck with your projected "real NBA talent" bracket.
BTW chuck eats his words for a living. Just watch one of his silly commercials.
He ain't even real.
I mentioned Indiana and Michigan having big time NBA guys. OSU really doesn't have big time NBA talent, DT is a 2nd round guy and Ross has potential, but isn't a 1st round pick or anything at this point. Michigan State actually has the 3rd most NBA guys. So besides 3 schools, the rest of the Big 10 isn't loaded with future NBA guys.
So Charles is saying besides Michigan, MSU, and Indiana no Big 10 team has a chance of winning it all. You being a OSU fan, I'm sure are pissed off he didn't mention you guys, but by his criteria you really don't fit. What he is saying is accurate, Minnesota or Wisconsin were never winning it all.
dee dee dee. I said if DT comes back, meaning he improves his D and his outside shot. He will be 1st round, and Ross has all the physical ability too be a lottery pick.. just needs PT.
Id put the top 4 of the B10 up against any other 4 in a round robin tourny, and have money on B10 winning.
Sure, he is stupid enough to mention the team with the easiest road to the final four. He definitely knows march madness
Usually the more talented teams are there in the end. Last year who won the championship? The team with the most NBA talent.
just like all the 5* NBA talent UK had this year. stick to child raa.. err, football.
You might be right and I'm not sure Charles would disagree, He just doesn't think the conference as a hole is as special as people have said all year.
the PedoState fan said hole.
That KY is once every 20 years. Actually the teams that WIN in March are the special teams that peak at the right time. Your focus is misplaced.
Go watch 30 for 30 Survive and Advance
He meant if it was comprised of NBA players that have come through the conferences...
FOr the last 3 years he opens with the B1G is overrated...all 3 years...
Find me team who has won the NCAA title in the last bunch of year without NBA guys on the roster?
sure, you see the NBA guys after the fact. Show me who called them as NBA success guys before the fact. Supposed 'one and dones' like Parker and Shabazz
