Who’s your Spartan/Wolverine? In the NBA that is. Whichever state of Michigan team your allegiance lies, there aren’t a whole lot of alumni from either school to root for in the NBA. Let’s face it, we make Duke look NBA-Prospect U. Izzo’s guys are usually gritty, fundamentally sound (AKA not that talented) players who always seem to overachieve in the Tournament, while Michigan players are usually naturally talented, but always seem to find a way to choke (their girlfriends). So, I have compiled my without research, top-of-the-head current Michigan/Michigan State fantasy basketball squads in light of tonight’s big game.
Jalen Rose (Michigan)
Magic Johnson (Michigan State)
*I have no idea if Petway or Sims are still in the League, and I don’t think there is a shooting guard from Michigan in the League. And if there is, he probably sucks.
The two schools have a combined one All-Star (Howard), one Slam Dunk Champion (Richardson), and one talented, but childish/selfish player who looks like a gigantic baby (Randolph).
Well, at least both schools have football….right?
