Default Re: delfino officially gone

As I recall, there were 4 players who stood out as potential number 1 picks among all the mock draft experts in 06- Aldridge, Thomas, Gay and Bargnani, any of whom could have gone first. By the time of the draft, Roy was solidifying as the 'best of the rest'- with some even thinking he may break into the 'big 4'- while Gay's stock was dropping so that he was the least highly rated of those 4 and the most likely to be picked lower. Either going at 1 on draft night would have been a big surprise (and not just because of theRaptors' known admiration for Bargnani), especially if it was Roy.
