Or Ed Martin.
Thanks for making an account just for that comment.
Some Michigan fans forget about Ed Martin. Well those that bring up World Wide Wes. Sparty on.
Ed Martin: Chris Webber
World Wide Wes: DaJuan Wagner, Lebron James, Derrick Rose, Tyreke Evans, John Wall, Andrew Wiggins, etc. (I'm sure I'm forgetting a few.)
Nice try though.
Btw, Sparty fans should be ever grateful to Ed Martin. Otherwise, Sparty basketball (and Izzo) would still be in the shadow of Michigan basketball.
The fall of Michigan basketball led to the rise of Sparty basketball. It's similar to how the fall of Michigan football led to the rise of Sparty football.
I love how Coach Beilein's group of 3 stars can match-up with Izzo's 4 stars and 5 stars.
For instance, Izzo still hasn't produced a National Player of the Year.

Calipari just at Kentucky has John Wall, Brandon Knight, Eric Bledsoe, & Marquis Teague all playing in the NBA right now, and Andrew Harrison next year is as good as it gets @ PG. Michigan is definitely solid, but UK is pumping out 1st Round PG's every year.
I haven't heard WWW mentioned in years @ UK... I remember when Cal got the job, the AD of UK said WWW had to be removed from the program in every way shape & form. Not saying that he isn't behind the scenes, nobody knows for sure, but he's not sitting on the sidelines like he was allowed to @ Memphis.
Go back to your mothers basement
Michigan basketball is like a tramp stamp it was cool in the 90's. Louis Bullock.
I know for a fact WWW is a reason Randle is going to UK. He was touting that last summer at the Olympics.
Stupid question. Who is World Wide Wes?
Check out this photo.
It's WWWes after Kentucky won the 2012 National Championship.
And Wes is behind the scenes. IIRC, he started courting Andrew Wiggins when he was an 8th grader. It remains to be seen if it pays off for UK.

Here's a great article about WWWes.
In the NBA, all roads lead to one man, whom you�ve probably never heard of: William Wesleythe most connected, most discreet, most influential man on and off the court
This is funny coming from a Maryland fan...
Kentucky: Rondo, Wall, Knight, Teague
Duke: Irving, Rivers, Curry
UNC: Felton, Lawson, Marshall
Morris was okay, Burke was obviously great, and Walton is an incoming freshman. Let's pump the brakes.
One great PG doesn't make you PG U...
Nobody cares what someone from tRCMB thinks.
I agree- really don't know why this thread was started. Lets pump the brakes a bit fellas.
The question is asking if Michigan is becoming PG U. Nobody said they were already there. It's a legit question in my opinion.
I'd be mad too if my PG was Keith Appling...
I know what the question is. The answer is still NO. Just cuz last few years Michigan has had 2 PG's drafted doesn't mean anything.
Edit- if Harris or Morris have had performed better so far - the. Yes this thread would be valid.

It means something to me. Coach B is starting something special with the PGs at Michigan.
I think the fact that people disagree with you and there has been discussion on it makes the thread valid.
I agree with that. Still early thou!
Lets say Texas put 5 power forwards in the league for 5 straight years but not one of them had any impact so far in the NBA- would u consider Texas PF U? Without a doubt the answer is no. The point I'm tryin to make.
