Color me crazy then.

He's the best talent in this draft. You can beat that.

And they're a 2 year old franchise........

I geuss that is where we differ. I think Gay, Morrison, Roy, Thomas, and Bargnani are all better talents. I think Aldridge is a good inside scorer, but one dimentional and soft. I don't think he will fare well against the great power fowards in the NBA and you can bet that he won't grab 10+ rebounds over a season ever in his career.

Tyrus Thomas is very versitial and can do a lot of things good. He is an excellent athlete who can be a great asset to a fast break on the wing. He can rebound better than Aldridge and he is the best shot blocker in the draft. He can't shoot and the only thing he can't do well is score but that won't be his role in the NBA.

Tyrus Thomas is about as versatile as Kenyon Martin. Trust me, I come from SEC country.

He's athletic as hell but I don't think he's even a better rebounder than Aldridge. If you to stack skills against skills, LaMarcus wins on his worst day and Tyrus's best day. Hands down.

Quite frankly I think both are overrated and both are going to be busts.

Okay? Your point?

You said Aldridge was one dimensional yet you rated Thomas higher who is much more one dimensional than the multi-dimensional Aldridge.

That was the only point I was addressing.

That would work if Gerald Wallace could shoot. He has one of the ugliest 3 point shots in the NBA.

By the way fatboy how is Aldridge one dimentional. Can he shoot the 3 ball? Can he run up and down the court like a freak? Can he dribble the ball or pass? Is he tough? The answer to all of these questions is know. The only thing he can do is score inside and be tall like a said. He can't even rebound better than Thomas. Thomas does everything better than Aldridge except score inside. Neither has an outside shot either.

Aldridge is a better passer, scorer, rebounder, more techinally sound.....okay I can stop there. That makes him multi-dimentional in comparison to Tyrus Thomas.

I'll give you Aldridge is more "technically sound" but he is older, besides who the hell cares. Thomas is a freak and by the way he is a better rebounder, passer, and for good measure shot blocker. Listen to the stats. Thomas- 26 minutes, 9.3 rebounds, 1.3 assists, and 3.1 blocked shots. Aldridge- 34 minutes, 9.2 rebounds, 0.5 assists, and 2.0 blocked shots. Thomas has better numbers in all three catagories in EIGHT less minutes. Those are all numbers you want you power foward to have and Thomas is better in all three catagories. Before you tell me he is a better passer and rebounder, you better be able to know what your talking about.
