Just taking a look at how deep that draft was I noticed a ton of it's strength came from picks 17-36

17 - Roy Hibbert (All Star)
18 - Javale McGee
19 - JJ Hickson
21 - Ryan Anderson
24 - Serge Ibaka
25 - Nicholas Batum
26 - George Hill
27 - Darrell Arthur
31 - Nikola Pekovic aka Hawkeye
34 - Mario Chalmers
35 - DeAndre Jordan
36 - Omer Asik
45 - Goran Dragic

Is it possible the Top 10 would consist of 8 Centers?

Gallo/Mayo/Gordon would probably be drafted in the teens which is crazy to think about.
Rose/Love/Westbrook/Lopez would likely be the top 4 picks. So Beasly/Alexander/Gallo/Gordon/Augustin would be replaced with Hibbert/Asik/Pekovic/Ibaka/Jordan or McGee.

Thoughts?

Ibaka and Batum at 24 & 25 is pretty crazy.

Not often do you see such both star power at the front and depth in the back.

That draft was easily the best one since 03

But there is no way that Deandre Jordan or Omer Asik would deserve to get drafted over Eric Gordon or even Gallanari

Ryan Anderson would move up.

I still think for some players it's still to early to tell.. Some guys aren't in an ideal situation to best utilize their talents.. I always think of Chris Webber before the Kings he had the numbers but never put a stamp on the league. I think players Like Eric Gordon, OJ Mayo and Michael Beasley still have an opportunity to be good players in the right situation.

Ryan Anderson would move up.

Rose
Westy
Love
Lopez
EG
Ibaka
Hibbert
Anderson

I'd take him 7th over Gallo, Mayo and the rest. Batum is making a charge.

Great draft, for sure. One of the deepest ever.

Joe Alexander is the only crazy bust. Ajinca, DJ White, Giddens and Donte Greene are the only guys who really aren't contributing that were drafted in the first round. That's pretty impressive.

McGee is probably the best in that list. Unfortunately he doesn't get enough touches. He can seriously be the best center in the NBA.

Love isnt better than Lopez, talk to me when Love gets his team over .500. Like Lopez did who is leading his team to the playoffs.

10 PPG
5 RPG
2 BPG
56 FG%
60 FT%

Only playing 18 MPG.

No, not kidding. Give him more minutes and he'll produce better results.

Why do you facepalm everything? He's underrated and people think he sucks because he's on Shaq-a-fool often. Please, who in that list is better than McGee with those minutes?

I agree he's underrated and he's good, but it's not all about stats. There are intangibles etc. And he makes so many mistakes that he doesn't deserve many more minutes. He gets himself into foul trouble all the time. And to answer your question, Serge Ibaka, Nic Batum, maybe Pek, maybe Anderson.

Because 2 fouls a game while playing 18 MPG is a lot. I said based off minutes, no one else can put those stats up. Karl is making a huge mistake starting Mozgov over McGee. I watch Nuggets games, one of my favorite teams. McGee doesn't deserve this "******" label that many put upon him.

And I don't know what intangibles you are talking about. He barely gets enough minutes to prove himself.

It kind of is a lot.

Explain how he is probably better than Derrick Rose, Russell Westbrook, Kevin Love, & Brook Lopez

Most would rather have Love than Lopez, except you and maybe some other Nets homers. Nets have many more weapons to work with than MIN does. Don't act like you actually believe Lopez is better.

Miami should've had Rose the first pick or got Love with the 2nd.

only when he stops playing like the worst center in the league.

Why do you care so much, if you think Love is better thats fine. That is your opinion. Love is one of the biggest stat padders in the NBA. He rebounds better than Lopez. He isnt a better defender. Love is not a easy guy to root for either he keeps talking about leaving Minnesota.

This is part of your argument of why Lopez is better? Sad.....

After 4 years watching the performance of these players I come to the conclusion that 2008 NBA draft is the best draft since 2003 without any kind of doubt.

There are players like Beasley, Mayo and D.J.Augustin who maybe shouldn't be selected as top 10. The worst of all top 10 selections was 8th (Joe Alexander). He souldn't be inside first round. The other three aforementioned players maybe would be included at 10-15 spots.

So, we have four position to fill in top 10 as we have Rose, Westbrook, Love, Gallinari, Eric Gordon and Brook Lopez, all of which deserve to be included in top 10. Batum, Ibaka, Pekovic and Hibbert are the players who I would select as top 10. Actually I would put them at 6-10 position.

Other players like McGee, Dragic, Asik, Jordan and Ryan Anderson should be included in top 20 selections. Ultimately, the 2008 NBA draft provided more than 20 high quality players. I will renumber them:

1 Derrick Rose (1, if he is healthy)
2 Michael Beasley (16)
3 O.J. Mayo (11)
4 Russell Westbrook (3)
5 Kevin Love (2)
6 Gallinari (7)
7 Eric Gordon (5)
8 Joe Alexander (2nd round)
9 DJ. Augustin (27)
10 Brook Lopez (4)
11 Bayless (24)
12 Jason Thompson (21)
13 Brandon Rush (25)
14 Anthony Randolph (28)
15 Robin Lopez (20)
16 Speights (23)
17 Roy Hibbert (6)
18 Javale McGee (12)
19 JJ Hickson (26)
21 Ryan Anderson (15)
24 Serge Ibaka (9)
25 Nicholas Batum (10)
26 George Hill (18)
27 Darrell Arthur (22)
31 Nikola Pekovic (8)
34 Mario Chalmers (19)
35 DeAndre Jordan (13)
36 Omer Asik (17)
45 Goran Dragic (14)
