  6. bk says:

    Wheres the highschool dropouts?
    that should be a 1 seed

  7. RhoNin says:

    if you’re talking about the likes of KB24, D12, KG, LeQueen and co. – they didn’t drop out, they did finish high school. I’m not sure about all of them, but Kobe also qualified academically for college

  8. KickNdaJunk says:

  9. Mark Wilcox says:

    Hello there whoever…I don’t know a lot about college ball but I know UCLA was #7 and they lost to #3 Florida. Something is wrong with the brackets shown.

  10. Mark Wilcox says:

    Excuse me…#2 Florida

    • rkb says:

      This is not a bracket of the NCAA tourny, this is a bracket where fans vote on which school they think has produced the best NBA athletes… that is why it is titled “Bragging Rights Bracket: The ultimate battle for school pride” and not the “NCAA Basketball Tournament Bracket”

    • rf says:

      its not a real bracket its nba players that played for that college

  11. JIggy says:

    This is the NBA NCAA voting bracket made up of players already in the NBA

  12. haller!!! says:

    This is not about this year’s or even last year’s bracket. They are talking about players from these college teams (alumni) who are in the NBA right now and that if they were to play together, i.e. Duke vs Florida (Duke – Grant Hill, Luol Deng, Carlos Boozer, Corey Maggette and Elton Brand, and Florida – David Lee, Matt Bonner, Al Horford, Mike Miller and Joakim Noah) who will win the match? I’d pick Duke.

  13. smittal13 says:

  14. BR says:

  18. BALLS ON FIRE says:

  19. DUMB JUNKIE says:

    WOW! NBA’s version of NCAA? It’s not really an NCAA bracket. It’s BRAGGING RIGHTS

  20. Jah.Martins says:

    but brought back basketball to even the remotest smallest 3rd world country!!

  21. MJ says:
