When you think of Kansas, you immediately think of the long list of big-time players the program has produced. Celtics star Paul Pierce comes to mind, and so do the Morris twins and Thomas Robinson -- all of whom were lottery picks.
Pierce was a huge name when he signed, but the other guys weren’t McDonald's All-American-caliber players in high school. They improved under Bill Self's direction.

By the time their careers ended, though, they were national headliners and player of the year candidates.
