1-Roy (HES A TOP 15 PLAYER IN THE LEAGUE)
2-Aldridge (a PF with that much size and athleticism is silly to pass up)
3-Gay (shows flashes of how unstopable he could be)
4-Rondo (a solid 3rd or 4th option, good D, solid vision, great slasher, perfect PG for a team with a bunch of shooters, because he cant shoot)
5-Bargnani (average nba player with plus plus height, has potential, but he is not physical enough to ever be consistent enough down low and be a force on the boards)
Portland easily got the top best guys in the draft that year.
Roy being a top 10 player in the league and Aldridge 20 10 guys don't happen often so you can't pass that up.
3rd and 4th is a toss up between Milsap or Rondo. Rondo hurts you a lot offensive b/c he can't shoot and teams tend not guard him and Milsap might be able to average 20 10 with d williams at the point
Rudy is my favourite player but im gonna have to take roy over him.
- Brandon Roy
- Rudy Gay
- Rajon Rondo
- Andrea Bagnani
- Tyrus Thomas
- LaMarcus Aldridge
- Paul Millsap
- Ronnie Brewer
- Kyle Lowry
- Daniel Gibson
good list but i think Powe should be eighth.
Powe should not be eighth, he is not that good
i think he actually might be beter than Thomas too. why dont you like him? and adi how can Thomas be higher than Aldridge Aldridge is almost an all star while THomas is still working on getting a consistant jumpshot?
Thomas is going to blow up this year, just wait and see.
Powe is not that good, he rarely starts and I dont think he starts on most teams. In a draft, why take a benchplayer 8th on purpose?
true you draft on potential, and Powe's potential isn't high at all
yeah he might but Aldridge could be an All-Star this year and iu dont think Thomas is at that leval.
to pick rondo over roy. roy is all-around player , who can make the tough shots when needed, plus hes a smart player as well. he just one of the guys that every team wish they had. rondo on the other hand is not that great. and i was the biggest rondo fan out there. like i said before you put rondo on a team like the kings or bucks . and see if he'll still put up them type of numbers there. he cant even make a shot like that. why do you think teams dont guard him like that plus you have to worry about the others(allen, pierce, kg) now roy can go to the worst team in the league and he'll still put up the same exact numbers.
P.S IM THE KOBE BRAYANT OF TYPING LOL.
To be honest, I question how much upside Aldridge has left in him.
Thomas, to me, is still rapidly improving. He has the chance to be an All-Star for years to come, a Shawn Marion-type of player.
I see Aldridge as a soft but skilled scorer who doesn't rebound or play great defense. He's a good role player, but hardly an All-Star. To be honest, I expect Oden to outshine him this year if he's given the minutes.
As far as Powe, even if he could have been special, his injuries make him far too big a risk to take in the top 10. He'd probably fall around the 15-20 range in a redo.
he is soft but so is Thomas and i think he has more potential and if hes more aggresie he could be as good as like Kg.
I think you throw some of these elite comparisons out there too easily. The other day it was chalmers can be like chris paul, and now it's aldridge can be like KG. KG does just about everything better then aldridge, not just his aggresiveness. KG was a lot more agile and athletic. He could dribble and pass better. Aldridge, is good and i agree he is better then thomas, but he is primarily just a shooter.
he has skille at drivin but he doesnt use them enough, i agree its a longshot but if he bulks up and uses his attacking skills he could be amazing dont forget hes only a year older than Thomas. another plus is work ethic i dont think Thomas has enough of one to be an All-Star but Aldridge plays with a chip on his shoulder.
Tyrus Thomas seems like one of those players (see: Tim Thomas) that EVERY YEAR is going to be his year to blow up.... I dont think he will ever play up to his potential... I dont see it.. His handle is shaky, his mid range game (improved a little) is very streaky and is an area where he lacks confidence, and he just looks like he is lost on the court sometimes... Personally I think he is a 6th or 7th man on a championship caliber team.. I dont think a team can with a trophy with him as their starting PF....
