With the Jordan Brand ‘College Collection’ dropping tomorrow, how about we take a look back at Melo, Wade, and CP3’s greatest college-time achievements? Dwyane Wade led Marquette to the Final Four in 2003 while recording one of four triple-doubles in NCAA Tournament history, upsetting the top-ranked Kentucky Wildcats in the process. Chris Paul led Wake Forest to two straight tournament berths, getting as far as the Sweet 16 in the 2004 Tournament. The highest regard goes to Carmelo Anthony, who led Syracuse to its first ever National Championship in his Freshman year, earning the tournament’s Most Outstanding Player Award will receiving praise from coach Jim Boeheim, who called Melo the best player in college ball by far, emphatically making his point with “It wasn’t even close”. You can relive any one of those three stories tomorrow when the College Collection of the Fly Wade 2, Melo M8, and CP3.V hits retailers like Millenium Shoes, so let us know which of the three Jordan Brand stars had the best college career and cop any one of the three releases on eBay.
