Lakers Examiner: With March Madness in full swing, I thought it would be a good time to take a look at which member of the Los Angeles Lakers had the most potent college team.

Obviously this would be a much different list if Kobe Bryant or Pau Gasol had played college ball, but even without them we are looking at some pretty good squads.

    i pick Joe Crawford, who was drafted by the Lakers and plays for the defenders. Crawford went to Kentucky and his freshmen year they go to the elight eight. should’ve beaten State to go to the Final Four but that’s another story. that team had rajon rondo, kelenna azbuike, chuck hayes and randolph morris.
