Tar Heel fan favorite Theo Pinson caused quite a stir on social media on Wednesday night after a clip of an episode of Tide League revealed his UNC all-time from five.
Pinson was joined by former UNC players, Justin Jackson and Kenny Williams, and the Tar Heel trio drafted who they believed belonged on the five all-time starting players list. Michael Jordan was drafted first by Theo, Vince Carter was second behind Jackson and Antawn Jamison was third ahead of Williams. Each player had a different starting five with a unique twist on their reasons why.
