The All MAN Team: An Inside Look at the 2009 NBDL All-Star Game

Attention all National Basketball Development League (NBDL) general managers and scouts: below is the key to having a successful NBDL team. However, you must be sold on the idea that wins, not boring white dudes, will sell out your high school gyms.
On this list you will not find Greg Paulus or anybody from Duke only because they have already signed long-time contracts to be wipers for Coach K’s BMs. Nor will you find David Padgett, although you will find a 23-year-old junior. Finally, you will not find anyone that sports Rec-Specs. Having worn this eyewear as a youngster, I can’t figure out why everyone is refusing to tell the cats from Louisville and Wisconsin that there is new eyewear called “contacts.”
Anyhow, these five players will guarantee VICTORY (in the famous words of Johnny Drama) and will be able to beat any of the first team all-conference squads Tee or Dick V makes up. These MEN are also likely players that will go undrafted and will not make a final NBA roster (unless, of course, Steve Kerr or Danny Ferry reads this column). Finally, in this article you will not find any of Tee’s stupid “ratings.” I mean this as no offense to Tee, but I know (for fact) that these ratings are made up and relied on by people that are overweight and unathletic. These MEN don’t need no ratings to tell them they are good…
Joey Dorsey (Memphis) - This senior could be my favorite player to watch in the country. I think Calipari just tells his players to throw it anywhere near the backboard and let this six-foot-nine, 260-pound MAN clean it up. You wanna go after someone: “He’s a man.”
Jeremy Pargo (Gonzaga) - This junior is super quick and will challenge any big man. He’s averaging 12 points, four rebounds and six assists a game.
Jamont Gordon (Miss. State) - This junior is just crazy good, plus you got to love his flash. He is averaging 17.5 points, six boards and five assists a game.
Lester Hudson (Tenn.-Martin) - This 23-year-old junior already recorded a quadruple double, and he has scored over 25 points against every major team he has played against. On the year he is averaging 26 points, eight rebounds, four assists, and three steals a game.
Sean Singletary (Virginia) – Finally this senior just has too much talent and competitive spirit to leave off this MAN’s team. He is averaging 18 points, six assists, three rebounds, and two steals a game.
Over the next couple of weeks make sure that you watch these men at least once because you likely will not get to see them again until the NBDL all-star game next February.
