Player of the Year

Not really following college basketball, I knew that putting up good numbers in college has only a vague relationship to being a great NBA player, but just this morning I saw the actual list of college Player of the Year award winners. It’s sobering:

There are some good players on this list. Elton Brand doesn’t get the recognition he deserves and Marcus Camby’s contribution to Denver is, I think, frequently understated. Nevertheless, it’s hard to avoid noticing that of the guys on this list only Tim Duncan is a legit franchise player.
