- Charlotte ranked 28th of 30 teams in offensive efficency. They've got a nice defensive stopper at the wing with Gerald Wallace -- a guy who can hide Adam Morrison if need be. I don't think that Morrison is the defensive liability that most think he is. And let's face it -- the Bobcats need some guys who can move off the ball.
- I like Aldridge in Portland -- particularly with the imminent departure of Przybilla. I'm perplexed with the poo-pooing by the ESPN experts. Let's wait and see with Thomas. I'm not sold on Athletes. Darius Miles? Stromile Swift, no?
- Atlanta did well. I know they need a point, but at least they didn't choose yet another wing player. He should be a solid 13-8 guy, top 5 in blocks, 3rd team All-Defense by his qualifying year.
