Today on TrueHoop TV, Henry Abbott and David Thorpe talked about Trey Burke. At the 3:23 mark, Henry held up a familiar book.
Henry’s point — which was noted in Stumbling on Wins — was that Trey Burke will surely be drafted earlier in the draft simply because he played on a team (Michigan) that made the NCAA Final Four. A point that, it should be noted, was completely ignored by David Thorpe, who proceeded to say that he thinks that Trey Burke could end up being the #1 pick.
To quote a surprised Abbott: “Ohhhhhhhhh!”
Now, Burke may end up being a good NBA player — after all, he ranked 25th in NCAA Wins Produced this year — but there’s no doubt that he’ll end up getting drafted higher than he would have had Michigan lost in the first round.
