Quick, before they all start signing contracts. Here’s a list of the top 25.
Read the SLAMonline Discussion Rules before posting.
I just hope the Lakers do SOMTHING… but Pau Gasol probably ruined that chance… Odom for Artesssst!
Why list garbajosa when he’s going back to europe?
Nice list, however I have a question how the hell did Sabastian Telfair ended up on that list? The guys been in the NBA for the past 5 years and did nothing!!! I repeat nothing man he should have went to college.
To TMZ: How did the Pau ruin the Lakers cahnce at getting better talent?
josh smith can play point..yea dont think so hes just a shot blocker and slasher thats it… id put arenas, brand , baron and james posey infront josh smith on the top of that list
decent list put together to see who’s available. ignore everything else written though, nothing on it makes sense. this person probably doesn’t speak english.
Josh smith higher than Gilbert and baron?
who is this guy
Bassy a ‘Rich man’s Rafer Alston’? I’m speechless.
And Sasha Vujacic is a great defensive player, that’s one of his strengths.
youngmuggsy, I caught that too. AWFUL. as someone that was forced to watch him in person for 41 games in ’06-’07, trust me, he’s not the rich man’s anything. he’s garbage. wouldn’t make an All Star team in Latvia
Also, Emeka over Elton Brand?!? I mean really, are you f#$*in serious?
@Youngmuggsy: You gotta be joking, right? You did actually watch the finals didn’t you?
B_Easy24, don’t mention the whole college thing, Ryan will throw a hissy fit.
Sasha Vujacic does a great job of showing the youths of america how not to move their feet on defense. End o’ story.
I would rather have Pargo, Louis Williams, or Daniel Gibson instead of Vujacic. But great read, nonetheless.
And yes, Vujacic does dance with many players.
I love lamp
i thought that was the biggest waste of typing i have ever read. Then i realized some of my comments were just as dumb. oh well.
HOw the HELL is Josh Smith better than Andre IGuodala……….thats the dumbest thing ive heard since i heard that Bynum wanted 80 mil…..
@ B. Long, if we judge by finals performance, Kobe Bryant is an average player.
Machine is not only a streaky three point shooter, but a streaky defender as well (shut down manu but couldnt play D in the finals) (or shoot) and if we judge players on finals performances, KG is an average player as well, and pau/odem/lakers are below average by far.
See…the thing you forget is there was no need to go for a PG in the draft when Beno Udrih should get P.A.I.D. this season.
josh smith!!! #1! I hope to see him in LA where kobe and him will kick a$$ in the west coast!
Agreed. How the hell did this guy get some SLAM-love?
The guy that wrote that sucked with his comparative ability, grammar and overall shonkey ways.
Suns should sign him!
I agree….If I had emailed that into Slam I woulda got run outa Australia.
yup pretty wack ranking. beno is ahead of a guy like luol deng? if you know basketball it shouldnt happen. i mean ok the bulls was terrible this year,but luol would be a great number 2 or 3. i bet the lakers would ve loved to have him in the finals.i think people are sleeping on brand. if he ll be the old 20/10 what he was his whole career he is a guy any team should want. i d like to see him go sacrifice financily and give lebron a hand on cleveland. the cavs need to give lebron some help.the ben wallace trade turned out to be even worse than i expected.
I started reading from the bottom up but stopped when he said Josh Smith could play point guard.
lang,i wish i would have done that.but then i would ve missed the part where he is sayin that emeka okafor is an defensive stopper and but then only a “solid” defender on the 4. well i think he can guard both posititions. there are not too many strong centers in the nba.most of the times they just put somebody tall on the 5 (lets say foyle)or a good 4 that will just play the 5 (like amare used to).
josh smith is the opposite of a pg, a blocker and a dunker, not that pg’s can’t block and dunk
