Why would you put Bynum over Williams and Bogut?

Bogut is averaging better than Bynum and only getting better, same goes with Bynum but he's more injured.

This should be the list.

1. Chris Paul
2. Deron Williams
3. Andrew bogut
4. Andrew Bynum
5. Ellis

San Antonio: 17 points 15 rebounds (6 offensive), 3 blocks
Dallas: 24 points 14 rebounds
Utah: 23 points 10 rebounds

when he has the ball more he's alot more effective, and he basically did follow the formula of the bigman in the NBA, start off slow and then develop better, which he is now. i won't be surprised if he gets 18 10 and 2 next season.

He didn't win the Nat'l title that year. UNC did against my Illini. Was a great year of college basketball.

To answer the question...He did win CPOY, got all the accolades, and led a very mediocre Utah team to the tourney. He wasn't very gifted athletically, but his basketball IQ is tremendous. He's a fantastic passer and had pretty good footwork. No one knew Deron was going to be what he was, but Chris Paul was projected to be the best out of the draft. Overall the draft wasn't that strong as Bogut is still a top 5 player from it. So it wasn't a horrible decision though Deron and Paul have leaped bounds ahead of him...and Marvin Williams matter of fact.

Bogut is a good athlete... Do you watch basketball? Prob top 5-10 athletic centers.

Because he was a former College Player of the Year, and he also jammed on Tim Duncan in the 2004 Athens Olympics.

I cant stand Andrew Bogut, hes a wanna bee wig-g-er. And im from Australia too.

When he was 1st drafted he said "I will be better than Andrew Gaze, Luc Longley and SHnae Heal, they are too old and slow", they are 3 ICONS of Australian basketball and he dissed them in 1 go.

I lived in Milwaukee at the time and the argument was between Bogut and Williams. I was never sold on Williams and wanted Bogut.

However, at the time, T.J. Ford was the PG and so Paul was never seriously considered, although he was getting a lot of buzz about his workouts. Ford was even coming off of a very serious back injury. Bogut has been OK, but clearly the Bucks blew that one. Ford is now in Toronto and Mo Williams was traded to the Cavs. Needless to say, Paul would have been the way to go.
