Seven of the 12 former Gators competed in the prestigious Christmas Day match-ups for their respective NBA teams.

Chandler Parsons is a MUCH better professional player than I ever thought he would be...I would compare his frame to Tayshaun Prince (also wrongly predicted) and I felt they would be too frail to compete on that level.

He probably was too frail when he left college.
He's still thin, but gained a hell of a lot of weight it seems.

David Lee is one of my favorite players right now. If he stays healthy he'll be Golden States key to bein in Western conference finals. I never expected him to be that kinda beast. He's arguably the 2nd best PF in the league behind Aldridge.

Kevin Love and Duncan might edge him out as well

It pains me to give credit to Florida but Donovan develops some legit pros. There's been a few players from Florida i thought would fail in the league but have thrived. With all his successful bigs in the league more recruits should head to Florida, imo.

I honestly hadn't thought about it until this thread, but you guys are right. Gators have some legit pros.

I'm sure there'$ a rea$on we struggle to get the big$.

I don't think Donovan has put a big into the league without at least two years at UF.
Young could have been a one-and-done.
