The lack of NBA-level stars pouring from Michigan State can be viewed through two lenses:
1. Spartans coach Tom Izzo isn't recruiting enough next-level talent, therefore putting himself out of position to coach future pros.
2. It'd be nice to see more, but Izzo remains in contention on a yearly basis with the most "collegey" of college players.
Six Final Fours, a title...you know the rest. With or without NBAers in waiting, Spartans basketball will survive and flourish while under Izzo's control. What's there to really gripe about?
But for the sake of scaling talent, this slideshow will take a look at Michigan State's expected 2014-15 roster and rank the potential professional-level talent.
