I remember before that draft, at the beginning of the NBA season, Gay was essentially the consensus number 1 pick, Bargnani if I'm not mistaken was somewhere in the 4 - 8 range of players to be taken. Number 2 was Tyrus Thomas (there were so many comparisons to him and Marion) I believe. Aldridge was 3 and then I remember seeing Andrea at 4 with Roy at 5 and I believe Foye at 6.

Then Gay had a mediocre year at college and more questions about his desire/heart came out and he fell but I do remember Gay being considered the best player in that draft.

Oh well, it is what is now. We took a guy based on potential and highest upside (I thought highly of the pick and I'm sure some things I said at EBS could be found proving that point). The guy is just like cowardly lion though, has no heart.
