    You mean there was a time when OSU actually was able to get players in the NBA? Shocking.

    8. Michael Redd (2000, Milwaukee)
    Redd, a 6-foot-6 guard drafted by the Bucks out of Ohio State, just keeps getting better. After appearing in only six games in his first season, he emerged as a scorer, averaging 11.4 points per game coming off the bench in 2001-02, and then 15.1 points per game the next season, again mostly as a reserve. This past season, Redd started every game, averaging 21.7 points (10th in the NBA) and 5 rebounds, and played in the All-Star Game.

    C'mon, no votes for Carlos, but that big stiff Kevin Duckworth received votes ?

    I love Redd, but not as much as Boozer.

    Redd is the only reason Milwaukee has been decent the last couple of years. It's doesn't matter though... unless he plays for the Packers no one in Wisconsin cares.

    Two more players bailed on the Olympics today. I wonder how far down the list before Redd gets an invite. That would be cool.

    I think Redd got his invite today... that's what they said on Sportscenter.

    On a side note, is any else as pissed off as me that so many players are turning their backs on the Olympic squad? F**k every one of them who thumbs his nose at his country...

    Excuse my ignorance on the subject, but have we ever had any other basketball Olympians?

    Jerry Lucas (1960) and Bill Hoskett (1968) both own Gold Medals. I am not aware of any others - and none since Pros were allowed.

    IronBuckI Calmer than you are.

    JJ should have been on it in '92. Fucking Laettner hits a lucky shot in the tourney, and he gets picked for the dream team. That's exactly what that team needed, was another fucking center. :pissed: I'm not bitter. I'm not bitter.

    Redd screwed over for Olympic team

    Bullshit. I hope this team falls flat on it's ass....

    UConn center Emeka Okafor will be invited to fill the final roster spot on this summer's US Olympic basketball team, league sources tell ESPN.com's Marc Stein.

    Okafor is expected to formally accept the invitation shortly, which would complete USA Basketball's season-long odyssey to finalize a 12-man contingent for Athens after numerous pullouts and rebuffed invitations.

    USAB's selection committee opted to fill its final roster spot with a power player instead of a perimeter specialist such as Milwaukee's Michael Redd.

    How's that bullshit? Apparently, somebody thought they needed Okafor more. I would've liked to have seen Redd on the team, but the represent my country, I'll root for them anyway.

    I may sound crazy but I would take Redd over Melo, Lebron does Melos job as the wing scorer.
