|No. 1 Amare Stoudemire, No. 2 Carmelo Anthony, No. 3 Raymond Felton, No. 36 Brandon Roy, No. 37 Randy Foye, No. 38 Gerry McNamara. |
Overview: Stoudemire and Anthony have turned into two of the NBA's best, Felton won a title and became a lottery pick, Roy and Foye were rated higher by Scout.com than any other major service and McNamara was a great collegian, though not a major pro prospect.
No. 4 Paul Davis, No. 5 Jason Fraser, No. 9 DeAngelo Collins, No. 25 Sani Ibrahim, No. 31 Michael Thompson
Overview: Davis was a good player but didn't justify his ranking. Fraser's career was derailed by serious knee injuries. Collins' off the court problems and attitude were too much to overcome while Ibrahim and Thompson simply didn't pan out.
No. 8 Shelden Williams, No. 13 J.J. Redick,No. 10 Sean May, No. 23 Dee Brown
Overview: Williams and Redick hung jerseys at Duke and the latter became the ACC's all-time leading scorer. May led UNC to a championship and was the Final Four MVP. Brown is the winningest player in Illinois history.
Forward Al Thornton, forward Herbert Hill and wing Rodney Carney.
Overview: All went from three-star prospects to NBA draft picks. Thornton was a late bloomer, Carney played in Indianapolis but wasn't highly recruited and Hill was such a late bloomer he had no ACC offers despite playing for Jerry Stackhouse's former high school, Kinston.
Overview: Hard to argue with those guys BUT, Chris Bosh is also an All-Star and owns an Olympic gold medal.
No. 56 Deron Williams.|
Overview: All we can do is apologize. He was ranked behind Dee Brown, started over him and like Bosh, owns a gold medal.
