Why is Craft not considered an NBA commodity after his Sophomore year, and Burke was being slated as a possible first rounder after his freshman year? Please explain how Craft would be a better basketball player
sorry couldn't hear you over aaron craft's big ten defensive player of the year trophy. what has trey burke done again?
Big Ten Freshman of the Year?
lmfao, split with cody zeller who deserved that honor 10x more than trey burke
Yep cause Cody Zeller led his team to a Big Ten title. Oh wait no he didn't.
All-America Honorable Mention.
Craft make that list? No.
Clearly your not a paid talent evaluator also known as a scout, and neither am I. However, they do exist and apparently Burke grades out quite a bit higher than Craft. That's coming from the NBA
Honorable Mention All-American
Big Ten Freshman of the Year
First-Second Round NBA Draft Grade
All things Craft doesn't have.

And how did those accolades help michigan win when it counted. Taking 15 shots a game will get you national attention if you make even below avg % of them. Dime a dozen type players. Craft is a winner. Ill take a great role player in the nba over a wannabe wing man that hasnt proven anything.
Didn't seem to help Craft much either. No national title on what was considered a national contending team. Didn't even win the Big Ten outright.
If Craft isn't considered a NBA prospect after his JUNIOR year, he most likely isn't going pro.
Players like Craft can be found all over the D-League.
Burke was borderline 1st rounder after his freshman year.
Big ten champ and final 4 team sounds like you have no clue
That's why your a douche
Michigan was Big ten champs on a much less talented team. Seems like Burke was a big reason for that. Maybe if Craft was better Ohio State could of won the Big Ten outright.
Lets just say if Burke was on Ohio State and Craft was on Michigan,
Ohio State most likely would have beaten Kansas in the Final Four game, and Michigan would have come no where close to getting a share of the Big Ten title.

Glad yall are worried about the nba when we just kick your teams a$$ in every way possible
you claim accolades for Craft and make it sound like those are important. When we come back and show that Burke has impressive accolades as well, you just sidestep it and say accolades aren't important. You're a silly goose.
This to a T.
How'd that workout last year?
We care about our kids and their futures. Burke's future is bright.
It's okay to admit that Craft is worse than Burke (and that his second best talent behind his defense is underachieving).
Craft is a near 4.0 pre med student former valedictorian. I think his future is just fine regardless. Michigan student athletes primarily study "general studies" so when burke doesnt cut it shooting .300 in the nba we will see how you feel then. Craft's game is different bottom line and id rather have him on my team no question.
Oh, so now we are talking about grades because Craft doesn't have the talent to match up to Burke? This conversation just keeps switching directions on me!
We would feel bad. Too bad it isn't going to happen.
