Shabazz Muhammad The Best One-And-Done Pac-12 Basketball Player Ever?

USA TODAY Sports

The Pac-12 has had its share of one-and-done players like Shabazz Muhammad of the UCLA Bruins. But is Kevin Love still the gold standard?

I think Shabazz Muhammad declared for the NBA Draft earlier than any other player in Pac-12 history. Is he the best one-and-done player to ever play in the conference?

Jack Blanchat, Rule of Tree: Kevin Love was a much better one-and-done than Muhammad. Their scoring is about the same, but Love averaged twice as many rebounds as Shabazz.

Parker Baruh, Ralphie Report: Kevin Love. He was a major reason the Bruins reached the Final Four; and, averaged over 17 points and 10 rebounds a game while shooting 55 percent from the field and 35 percent from three in his lone season at UCLA.

Jack Follman, Pacific Takes: It would be between Muhammad and Kevin Love and I would give the edge to Love because he was a better rebounder and teammate.

Andy Wooldridge, Building The Dam: No. No! Love is a player of a different class. He was and is a star quality big man, and they are far more scarce than guards. I also don't see Muhammad leading the Bruins to the Final Four, and Love did.

David Piper, Addicted to Quack: Kevin Love was a far superior player.

Adam Butler, PacHoops: Everyone else has cited Kevin Love and rightfully so, but I'm also going to mention OJ Mayo. That dude put up better numbers in his lone season at USC. Also a big fan of Jerryd Bayless' year in Tucson.

NorCalNick, California Golden Blogs: Shareef Abdur-Rahim averaged 21 points & 8.4 boards in his one year in the Pac-10. I'll never forget about you, Reef, even if everybody else has.
