Izzo called him "ornery and nasty," and Randle didn't even really flash the perimeter game that wowed people when he was in high school. He needs to learn a few basketball lessons: Establish position closer to the basket, don't needlessly bring the ball down where it can get stripped, that sort of thing. He finished with eight turnovers, more than the whole Michigan State team. Still, the talent and desire are undeniable.

So: No. 1 pick, who would you take? There is a long way to go. Right now, my short answer is Parker, Randle, Wiggins, in that order. My shorter answer: Any one, please.
