It’s time to show some appreciation in this week’s #WNSTSweet16

    Great list. I still say Steve Blake is underrated though. He was always overshadowed by Dixon but really was the glue of the team for his 4 years. I will never forget the steal he had on Jason (Jay) Williams as Williams was getting instructions from Coach K and never saw Blake coming. Also who knew he would go on to have a 10+ year NBA Career and counting? I dont think anyone ever predicted that at the time he was drafted. As you can tell he was probably my All time favorite terp.
