I realize this is a support piece that applauds K's recent success, but this line doesn't give our players their due. At the same time, however, I can see where this writer is coming from. Generally speaking, I think most college basketball fans tend to see players like Thomas and Scheyer as fitting the mold for great college players that do not necessarily translate to the NBA. In that sense, they are 'ordinary' in regards to pro potential.
I think he is flat out wrong with Singler. If anything Singler has proven his pro worth by his Final Four MOP performance; there's a reason why he is pre-season All-American and a NPOY candidate. I have a feeling the writer meant to say 'Zoubek' instead of 'Singler' in his line.
