09:26 AM ET 02.27 | It comes as a bit of a surprise, but the Gophers' 6-foot-11, 240-pound junior Ralph Sampson III hasn't ruled out the possibility of declaring himself eligible for June's NBA draft, depending on how the rest of the season goes, he said. Underclass college players are allowed to declare for the draft, then withdraw before the draft and retain college eligibility. "I don't know yet; we'll see how the rest of this thing goes," Sampson said. "Hopefully, if I feel I'm ready. We'll see."

The NBA is such a joke now. Players run the league and now the power is concentrated on 5-6 teams thanks to Lebron, Melo, Amare etc... What a joke.

Stay in school, kid, because no one will give a <hit about watching you play when you jump to the Advanced Streetball League.

If he can get his clock cleaned by 6'1" Novak on Wolverines, what makes this guard trapped in a center's body think he'll have a chance in the NBA? Stay in school, you need another year...
