Let's have some fun, shall we? Over the past few weeks, I'm sure many of you have read numerous articles on "what the Sooners need to fix before next season starts," "reasonable goals for the Sooners next season" and "who needs to step up on the roster."
If those articles are your bread and butter, then I'm sorry for posting this. However, if you're bored of the monotony, then this article is for you!
In the spirit of the 2012 NBA draft having just taken place, it's only fitting to use that event to my advantage. The concept of this article is simple—name an OU star and find his NBA prospect counterpart. While it may seem irrational to compare a college football player to a college basketball player, I promise I'll try to make the reasoning seem as thought out as possible.
In any case, it should at least be more interesting than hearing why Landry Jones needs to be better in order for the Sooners to succeed for the 10th time this month.
Here's to hoping there are a few basketball fans out there that are willing to read this. Don't worry, though, I've embedded breakdowns of each prospect for those of you that aren't as familiar with the players listed.
