2009 NBA Mock Draft: Big B's Bad Boys

PG - Chris Paul:

The best point guard in the leauge; he can do it all. He can pass, he can shoot, he can defend, and he can lead his team. He makes whatever team he is on better, and is always a big time threat on both sides of the ball. He showed that is no one of the best playres in the league, and he can take any team deep into the playoffs.

Derek Fisher: A perfect back up for Paul. He has tons of veteran experience especially in the playoffs and getting to many NBA Finals with the Lakers. He has great leadership, good defense, and is a clutch player when it matters. He can mentor Paul, and give my team lots of leadership and clutch play to get me to the Finals and possibly even the championship.

SG - Manu Ginobili:

A top 5 shooting guard, no question. You can love him or hate him, but in the end you can't deny how great he is. He can drive the lane and make unbelieveable lay ups, and he can hit the outside shot. He isn't a great defender, but he isn't a bad one. He does flop a lot, but hey, he gets away with it and gets a lot of calls his way. If you think Bowen is a good defender with all his dirty play, then you have admit Ginobli can play some good D to. He is just great player that contributes a lot to championship team. He has won 3 rings with the Spurs, a gold medal in the 2004 Olympics with Argentina, and many international titles as well. Combined with Chris Paul, he makes my backcourt the best.

Bruce Bowen: Bowen is a great guy to have, especially off the bench. He has good perimeter defense and can get a little rough if need be. You might not like him (I don't), but he gets the job done when you ask him to. He can come off the bench and provide great defense when I need it.

SF- John Salmons:

He is a great role player off the bench for me. He isn't great at any specific thing, but he is solid all around. He is a good slasher on offense as well as being able to hit the outside shot from time to time. He is also a good passer as well. He can play some good defense. The Kings had him guard the opposing teams best players at times even with they still had Ron Artest. He can come off the bench and play good amount of minutes for me.

Jamario Moon: Moon is the perfect back up player off the bench for my team. Like Marion, he has tons of athleticism and can be huge for my team on the fast break. He is also a good defender, and uses his great athleticism to get lots of blocked shots and rebounds. He provides lots of energy off the bench for us on offense and defense.

PF - Yao Ming:

Yao? At power forward? His height causes so much mismatches when he plays center, imaging how much more he can causes as a power forward. He his that unstoppable hook shot, the short jumper, and many other post scoring moves (not to mention he is a great free throw shooter). He is so difficult to cover for anyone, and with Paul giving him the rock, it should make it even harder on the opponents. He can play either post position for us, and play great at either one.

Paul Millsap: This is another one of my energy players off the bench. Millsap is very atheltic for a big man. He can crash the boards and gets lots of rebounds on defense and even offense as well. He is a very good defender and uses his big body to keep the post player from getting too deep on the block and getting easy shots. He is coming off the bench for the Jazz, but that's only because Boozer is there. He could be a starter for a lot of teams. He is pefect off the bench for me because he provides lots of energy and good defense as well as some offense.

C - Chris Kaman:

Kaman showed last year why has been the most underrated big man. He is very good rebounder and defender. He also can score well in the paint as well. He is a big guy that just works hard and contributes a lot to his team. He can hold his own against all the other great centers in the league, and knows how to help his team. Good offense, and great defense makes him a perfect player for my team.

Zydrunas Ilgauskas:

He is a great player to have. He can rebound, play solid defense, and give you some good post scoring as well. Big Z is a perfect big man to come off the bench for me. He can come in and give us that good defense, good rebounding (especially offensive rebounding/ tip backs), and post scoring with his turn around shot and tip backs.

Good luck to everyone with the tourney, and don't forget to keep track of the schedule so you know when to turn your gameplans in.

Who wins more Trophies?

There are 5 young superstars that will be the possibly the 5 best players in the league sometime in future. They are Chris Paul, Dwyane Wade, LeBron James, Chris Bosh, and Dwight Howard. Once Kobe Bryant, Kevin Garnett, Tim Duncan, etc. leave and retire it will be these 5 who will be the face of the NBA. They will battle each other for MVPs and championship trophies, but who will win the most?

Dwyane Wade has already won one with the Heat in 2005, but that was when Shaq was still a dominant force and the Heat were actually a good team. Now, all he has is Shawn Marion (who might not even stay there after his contract runs up) and Udonis Haslem. The Heat will probably have a top 5 pick in the draft next year, so they could do some major improving and be back in contention in the East again soon.

LeBron James has been to the Finals once already (after beating my Pistons!), but got swept by the Spurs for last year's championship. He is already seen as one of best players in the league at only 23 years old. He will continue to get better and possibly be one of the greatest we have ever seen. The Cavaliers don't have much without him, but after adding Ben Wallace, Delonte West, Wally Szczerbiak, and Joe Smith they could have a chance somewhere in the future.

Chris Paul is already becoming one of the best PGs in the NBA. He had his Hornets to first place in the West at one time this year. They are still in the top 3, and could make the playoffs for the first time since the '03-'04 season. He has shown is capable of leading his team, and has some good players around him (David West and Tyson Chandler) that can help him. They are just missing one more good player, and they could be a championship contender very soon.

Dwight Howard is possibly already the best center in the league. He has been in the league leaders in rebounds for the last couple years now. He is becoming a dominant force in the paint on offense and defense. The Magic looked to get him some help this year by signing Rashard Lewis. Lewis hasn't been all he was cracked up to be, but regardless, Howard has gotten his team to one of the top spots in the East. With a young improving PG in Jameer Nelson, and good player in Hedo Turkoglu, the Magic may not be too far from title contention themselves sometime down the road.

Chris Bosh is definatley one of the best players in the league. He doesn't get recognized like Wade, LeBron, Paul, and Howard because he plays for the Toronto Raptors who are in Canada. We don't get to see him often on national TV, so he kinds of goes un-noticed by some people. He is still a beast in the paint, and can put up 20 and 10 very consistently. He has a great young supporting cast with Jose Calderon, T.J. Ford, Jamario Moon, Andrea Bargnani, and Jason Kapono. They are all young guys like Bosh will continue to improve. They could, sometime in the future, be in contention in the East as well.

These 5 players could all take their team to the Finals and someday possibly win a championship, and they could all win an MVP eventually. The question is; who will win the most MVPs? Who will win the most championships?
