Potential Dream Team?

So I'm currently a third UCLA undergraduate and though few can say that their basketball team has been to the Final Four every year of their college career, I still want that 12th banner in Pauley and badly. In today's world of one and dones and the fame/fortune of the NBA, few college players stay if they feel that they can be drafted. Only one group of players defies this trend in recent history, the championship Florida team of 2007. They beat us in 2006 and all four starters could've gone pro. Instead, they made a pact to stay together and repeat, a remarkable feat.

This got me thinking, if only our players, namely Love, Westbrook, Shipp and Mba-Moute could somehow resist the NBA for a year. The real prospects here, Love and Westbrook could both use another year of development and really cement their high stock for the following year's draft. With Collison returning and our amazing incoming freshman class, there's no doubt we could dominate and to an even greater extent than this year. I'm disappointed to hear that Stanback is leaving but we will still have an immense amount of talent and greater depth. The potential for that 12th banner is tangible.

If there was only some way make this happen...
