It’s March, and as sports fans we all know what that means. This is the one time of the year when we turn our attention toward college basketball as we agonize over our brackets in hopes of picking that one upset no one else saw coming. Because with UMBC making history a year ago as the only No. 16 seed to knock off a No. 1, last season proved that anything can happen in the Big Dance.
But the NCAA Tournament has also served as a televised audition for those with aspirations of playing in the NBA, and as a result, unforgettable moments and runs through the tourney have been authored by many of today’s biggest ballers. That’s what makes March Madness must-see TV and why we keep watching year after year—you never know when you might be witnessing the NBA’s next superstar on college hoops’ biggest stage.
So, without further ado, these are the best NCAA Tournament runs among today’s NBA stars.
