Rondo

Im not dissing rondo cause hes awesome
but he only really shined coz of the situation he was put in with being the only capable point guard in boston and leading the big three who gave him opportunities to become the player he is today. If he went to a different team im not sure if we would see the same Rajon Rondo
but still
great player

I agree, Rondo would go 1st if you need a PG. If you dont, Roy is the pick

I would take Rondo as well.

I would take Rondo as well. I liked Rondo back when he was at Kentucky and I like him now. Brandon Roy is the better player, but Rondo has more value in my opinion because of the position he plays and the high level he plays at. I would never take a high-level wing over a high level PG.

I agree

Iguodala9 I thought Rondo was a steal when Boston got him. I knew he was one of the top 5 players in that draft, but Roy really was the difference between wins and losses right away. Rondo is one of the best point guards cause he finds the shooters real well. He would be nice, but he is helped a lot because he has those shooters: Ray Allen,House,Peirce,Garnett. He does brake the D down and find those guys open, but those guys never miss. Roy will put the team on his back and win the game by himself. I think he would be one of those wing players I would take before the point. He changes your whole franchise. Garnett changed the Celtics franchise not Rondo. By the way Rondo is my favorite player, I'm not bias.

guys don't count out

guys don't count out Bargnani just yet he is on the cusp of being an all-star, he is the 1 reason i can see Toronto trading Bosh , he will be better than him IMO

The Toronto Raptors

had the first pick and judging by their needs I think they would take Roy to go along side Bosh and Calderon who I believe was their Point Guard that year, if it is me personally, I'd take Roy of course. R.O.Y, 2 All-Star Appearances, Led team to Playoffs.

i think they can( because

i think they can( because they can afford to(Bargnani is a true PF can move back to his naural position) and he is a FA , they can get very valueable assests for Bosh, why even chance losing him when you can get much much better, and not delay the progress of Bargnani

i dont think any team but

i dont think any team but maybe the Heat, and Lakers would not take Roy. hes the the third best shooting guard in the league, and if Rondo left Boston theyd still be a good team, but if Roy left Portland would fall apart.

Bargnani

isn't a free agent, he signed an extension this past summer, but I forgot how much it was worth.

Roy

1 - Roy, most definitely. Can't pass up his versatility...
2 - Gay, secondly. Athletic and worthy of worldwide competition...
3 - Bargnani.

lolontharoflcopter - dominance at its best.

NAW

That doesnt mean anything. Hate when people do that. If Kobe left the Lakers they would still be contenders, but if Roy left Portland they would fall apart. Does that make Roy better than Kobe? I think not.

iguodala9

im not saying hes better than Kobe. its just the Lakers are an extremly talented team while Portland is a very young team that relies on him for offense and wouldnt have a legit number one option if he left.

haha.

If Kobe left they still have Lamar Odom, Pau Gasol, Bynum, and Artest.
If Roy left they have Aldridge...Greg Oden? Bayless? Fernandez?
Not as impressive.
If Rondo left they still have K.G, Ray Allen, and Paul Pierce
Roy is valuable to the Blazers, more so then Kobe to the Lakers, but they'd be stupid to let him leave

Roy would probably be a #2 option for Boston behind a healthy KG.

id have to say it would be close. but id give it to Roy because shooting guards are normally leaders for there teams, more than power forwards.

Pierce is getting up there

Pierce is getting up there in age & I have seen him wear down late in games quite a bit. He is still clutch but I think Roy would be the 2nd option. Roy overall is just a more effective player right now.

i think if Boston had Roy they would start him at point guard so now that i think of it i agree he would be the second option.

I think if they did a redo

I think if they did a redo in this draft imo, this is the top 10

Toronto- Rajon Rondo
Chicago- Andrea Bargnani
Charlotte- Brandon Roy
Portland- LaMarcus Aldridge
Atlanta- Paul Millsap
Boston-Rudy Gay
Houston-Ronnie Brewer
Golden State-Randy Foye
Seattle- Tyrus Thomas

No they wouldnt have. They

No they wouldnt have. They wouldve let him play 2-guard, remember they had Delonte West starting at the 2 back then.

Please

Roy would be a number two option in Boston easily. Also, No Adam Morrison?!? Haha. I love the 'Stache...sad career, but oh well. Still young and has a chance. I don't think Rondo would be the first pick if they re-did the whole Top 10.

I think Houston would take

I think Houston would take Foye or Thomas over Brewer. Thomas had/ still has a lot of potential and it would have been hard to pass up. Foye could have solved their point guard problems then (no more Bob Sura/ Rafer Alston/ Mike James/ Bobby Jackson point guard by committee.) Tmac was still solid, they probably didn't think the injuries would be as bad.

Toronto wouldnt take Rondo even if he was better because they already have Calderon.

Roy would go first no doubt.

Roy would go first no doubt. He is arguably a top 10 player in the league and can make the big shot or get his teammates involved. He is a franchise player, neither Rondo, Barganni, Aldridge, or Gay have established themselves as franchise players who can carry a team.

Yeah Toronto would want

Yeah Toronto would want Roy....its a pretty easy choice.

Also Tyrus Thomas is a better player than Brewer &or Foye IMO.

I remember a during that season of college basketball before the 2006 draft all these websites/media had Aldridge being the #1 pick/best prospect. Aldridge didn't look very good in the final four that year against LSU. Glen Davis & Tyrus Thomas gave Aldridge problems. But Aldridge turned out to be a solid pro.

I honestly

predicted Roy to be the rookie of the year. I thought Bargnanni and Foye would be his biggest challenges long term from that draft.

Since

I'm a UT Fan I was hoping Aldridge would do very well and I think he would've put bigger numbers up in Chicago. That was a steal for Portland getting Aldridge for Thomas and Roy for Foye. There were a lot of trades in the Top 10 that year. I also liked Bargnani because I enjoy watching International Players play and I was hoping he'd turn out to be just as good as Dirk was, the MVP that year I believe.

Roy because he's the only

Roy because he's the only guy who can legitamately lead a team to a championship from that last. Rondo, Gay, and Aldridge are all sidekicks... Bargnani? I donno if he's even close to a #2 option

What kind of question is this?

Who would not take Brandon Roy 1st overall? The dumb ones
Who would take him 1st overall? Those who have common sense...

Take note, the reason why Rondo exploded was because of the Big Three coming into the Beantown... If they weren't there, Rondo would be solid but not the player that he is today... Rondo would certainly be a top 10 but NOT ahead of Brandon Roy...

LaMarcus Aldridge was a great pick at 2 but the Bulls idiotically traded him to Portland... That was lame and dumb for them to have traded such an offensive talent in Aldridge... Bargnani would be 3rd or 4th and Morrison will be in the secon round.

That is IF we had to do the 06 draft all over again.

BTW, I am happy for him he got a new contract with the Blazers... Kudos to Kevin Pritchard and the staff for making that deal...

yeah the Bulls would be really good if they had Aldridge, but of course my favorite team the Blazers would be a lot worse so i dont feel bad about it.
