He'll fit in great with Yao's ugly ass.

Of course, he'll be gone by the time we get him.

YES! This (if it's true) means that one of those top 6 or so guys will fall to the Celtics

Hmm. ATL should pick him. They know what they are getting. They should sign-and-trade Al Harrington for a pg

I don't get why you all callin this stupid. He was the best big man in college basketball last season. And he'll be the second best NBA pro after Aldridge. What's wrong with a team that desperately needs what Williams provides selecting him? I'm not sure I get it.

Shelden apparently put up some big #'s during the draft camp with the bench press.

Shelden Williams, Redick's former Duke teammate, was one of the most impressive athletes tested Saturday by NBA trainers. Williams bench-pressed 185 pounds 25 times. Comparatively, the rail-thin Aldridge, an athletic power forward, lifted 185 pounds just eight times.

I don't get some of these tests. Bench presses have ****all to do with basketball. Tim Duncan would be lucky to get the bar up 8 times.

Shelden Will be a good player, nothing against him. Top 5 is too early, atleast trade down alittle and get atleast a good bench player if possible.

Tim Duncan is not the same kind of player like Shaq og B.Wallace. If they could bench as much as Duncan can they would be playing in the WNBA with Ericka

It's not a given he'll still be available.

I don't get what's wrong with taking the sure thing with a top 5 pick. So he doesn't have "superstar talent" like Bargnani or whatever supposedly do... so what? He'll almost certainly be a well above average big man, and most of the players in this lottery will not be that good ever. You're taking a lot of chances with nearly everyone in this draft, except Shelden. He's certain. How can he not be good? Atlanta has tons of "potential superstars" on their roster... and they need a tough ass big man, who they can be sure of. They don't need to roll the dice anymore. They need a center.

i will laugh if NO picks Shelden at 12 and Redick at 15, if that happens, neither will go far in the league, they'll just watch Chris Paul grow into a superstar
