i am not sure. how good are teams that have literally never met each other? there is talent there, thats for sure. and experience (but only really at guard, and for other teams). and will wade is a genius. elite eight i guess. for an ordinary team, you have maybe 9 guys who have played with each other. 9 times 9 is 81 instances of guys who have played together. on this team, only leblanc, wilkinson and o'neal and gaines have played together in a real game, and each played sparingly with the others. 4 fellas that have played together. the career of just days and smart probably has 20x times more together minutes on the court than this whole team. but its not just LSU i guess its almost every team so it should even out.
