COLLEGE COMPARISON’S – THE FRESHMAN YEARS – THE 2014 POTENTIAL TOP 3 PICKS

But as the June 26th NBA Draft gets closer here’s some more info to process as you and the Cavs try to decide who should be the #1 overall pick. Each of the Top 3 candidates have been compared to some current or former NBA stars, so I went back to all of their freshman years in college to see how their stats stack up against one another.
