LSU has 15 McDonald's All-Americans on the men's side in the 36 years it has been around. If you could choose only 5 to field a starting lineup of the guys below who would you choose?
I would go with Chris Jackson at point and Ronnie Henderson at the off guard spot. Shaq in the middle with John Williams on the wing and Stromile Swift to round it out.
G Chris Jackson
G Jamie Brandon
G Randy Livingston
G Ronnie Henderson
F Brandon Bass
F Glen Davis
F Sylvester Ford
F Tasmin Mitchell
F Johnny O'Bryant III
F Duane Spencer
F Stromile Swift
F John Williams
F Jarrel Martin
C Shaquille O'Neal
C Stanley Roberts
Love the versatility with Taz at SF. It's tough to go against Swift at PF but you could go with Big Baby there as well. I can't put Martin in there before he plays a college game. haha

I still remember that NIT game against Kansas back in 1989....Tough loss for me to deal with:)

That list proves that LSU leads the basketball world in producing back up NBA power forwards.
Livingston (healthy) PG
Chris Jackson. SG
John Williams SF
A healthy Livingston would have made mine and pushed CJ over to the shooting guard but I couldn't pull the trigger with him being so dinged up
I saw this list a few days ago, and I was reminded of Jamie Brandon...haven't thought of or heard about #4 in years, so I decided to google him and this is what I found.
Great find and was wondering the same thing myself.....I forgot that Brandon was that highly regarded when I saw the list too.
Put me down for Jackson and Henderson at guard with Shaq in the paint. I'm going with Brandon as the third guard and Big Baby to get some more beef inside.
Hot Plate not getting enough respect ITT.
How good was Duane Spencer in high school?
Pretty damn good player at Cohen. I think they made it to the semi's his senior year, but I could be wrong. John Thompson had his hands all over NOLA in the 80s and 90s. I don't think there was a better period in NOLA high school basketball than the mid 80's to mid 90s. Those St Aug teams in the early 90s were incredible.
