Again, the only other option was Aldridge and we all know why he wasn't chosen. Roy had bad knees which was proven 5yrs later and many teams passed on him, rightfully so. You don't choose a player with bad knees with your number one pick when you're coming off a 27 win season. As for Gay, at the time not many knew how good he'd be. Nobody would have taken him at #1. Take a good look at the top 5 that draft, just be thankful we didn't pick Adam Morrisson like some wanted.
