This. With the bullshit way Cbb is officiated some donkey would just camp out in the paint and all his insane dunks would end up as charges. Also only 5 fouls in cbb.
I'm certain LeBron would be able to adjust to the officiating. Not to mention while it may not be as prevalent as in the NBA, there's a star system in cbb too. How often does the top player on a top 10 team foul out during a season? Usually 0 times.
How about a mid major, 3 serviceable players, LeBron and me, a short 5'5" guy?
5/40 = 6/48
Ooh! Can the other guy be Vasquez?
Seeing him talk venezuelan trash to poor little frightened girls would be hilarious.
Which brings up another point... sure, college girls COULD stay down low and take a charge from LeBron, but I'm thinking they may value their lives a bit more than that.
Oh that's a good one. Lebron and the Baylor women's team: do they win the NCAA men's tournament?
It is the business walk of the biggest, baddest bear in the national park happening upon an abandoned picnic.
So Durant averaged 26 as an 18 years old bean pole, and you think LeBron will only score 35 a game?
I kind of don't think it would happen with the true bottom of the barrell teams like Grambling state. But give him a couple decent shooters and one big guy to rebound and it's over.
Is Rick Barnes involved?
It's a 40 minute game with a 30 second shot clock. How high do you think his numbers would go? 25 rebounds was mentioned already like it's nothing. Tim Duncan averaged 15 as a senior.
I think he'd either foul out quickly or pull up for jumpers. Even though he'd still hit jumpers at a ridiculously high rate, I think it would take away the full advantage of having a guy like him and don't think it'd be enough.
If he desired, an efficient 40-45 a game would be totally attainable. That is a point per minute.
Also far less games in college, so he could could go all out pretty much every game due to having guaranteed days off.
LeBron averages 1.5 fouls a game in the pros.
Seriously, the idea that almost all college basketball players can avoid fouling out but somehow Lebron wouldn't be able to is a bit much. Sure, the college charge is ridiculous and he would be dinged simply for being a big guy but I'm sure he'd adjust.
I got the shotgun. You got the briefcase. It's all in the game though, right?
I don't understand why you guys think hed get called for all these offensive fouls as if there is nothing he can do to avoid them.
The worst low major men's team would absolutely slaughter the Baylor women so I don't think that's a good hypo.
matt were you around when the women's national team used to scrimmage in halsey?
Phatboy if you had any balls I'd meet you at the AFA Boxing gym and have Coach Weichers put some gloves on us.
they weren't truly bad, but this scenario pretty much already happened when david robinson was at navy.
I think it matters what team he gets placed on. If he gets put on a team like Radford or The Citadel...then no, I don't think they would win it all. They would definitely win their conference and maybe a game or two in the tournament, but I think the top teams in the country would beat that team on a consistent basis. Other teams would just play a Box and 1 on Lebron and have the box focus on him as well. They would just let the other terrible players shoot.
Put him on a George Mason type of team and I think they would win it all.
Not even Lebron could take Paul Hewitt back to the final 4.
He took Mike Brown to the finals.
No, it didn't. We're talking about 28 year old Lebron playing at a god-like level, not college senior David Robinson or Larry Bird or freshman Durant.
players get better as they mature, but not so much that there's no comparison to be made.
He's good, but is he Jake Layman vs. Alabama good?
"And I try to har-mo-nize with songs the lonesome sparrow sings...
There are no kings inside the Gates of Eden."
No but I played soccer against Carin Jennings-Gabarra in pickup when she was captain of the USWNT and I was riding Navy's bench. She was the worst player on the field by miles.
People cannot wrap their heads around just how large the difference is between men and women.
