I can't wait for the college basketball season to begin. I know, I know, it is the summer and there is a long time before we tip it off. That doesn't mean I can't think about next season, baby!

I sat down at the Broken Egg restaurant and picked my All-Rolls-Royce teams for next season, subject to change in October, just before the season begins. You know, injuries could influence a change.

My friends, there is a lot of talent out there, and this was not an easy process. I know there will be some debates, and that is part of the fun.

So without further ado, I present the best of the best, starting with the All-Rolls-Royce first team:
