Ok, my non-bias selection is Emeka Okafor, he is the only player that I see doing good on the Bobcats, he will get over 10 rebounds a game and probably around 15 points if not more. Ben Gordon is a good player, he also will have to share some time though, it looks as if Luol Deng will be playing SG and they also have Chris Duhon and Kirk Hinrich at PG so I think a person like Okafor would be better then him. Howard is also pretty raw, he won't be used to playing NBA calibur players, I know LeBron did good but Howard was a post guy, he won't have such an easy time down low in the NBA, he will have to rely on a suspect jumper. Mobley, Francis and a healthy Hill will also take away from his scoring, not to mention the Magic's depth at forward.

I voted for Devin Harris, I think he is one of the most polished players to come out of this draft and the Mavs don't have a true PG. Jason Terry will probably start there but he isn't known for passing the ball around like the Mavs will need their PG to do. He will also see a lot of time when Finley and Stackhouse get tired and they need someone to step in there. Harris will also step in if Terry, Stackhouse or Finley get hurt, Stackhouse has been known to do that.

I'm guessing Kirk Hinrich, I think they should have invited Redd, with a shooter like him on the team I think they could have done a lot better then bronze. Redd would have also been one of the best defenders on the team, we all know they needed better defense. All of the best U.S. players declined and left us with Duncan and a bunch of kids to win a gold.
