for what it's worth, in the annual GM poll post draft, Bargnani and aldridge were tied (in a landslide) as the best player in 5 years from that draft. So saying that no other GM would have picked andrea is almost certainly wrong. If I recall, Chicago was rumoured to target Bargnani as well and I'm sure other teams would have done the same. That year there was no clear #1 pick.

also, who knows if aldridge turns the same way if he's buried behind Bosh playing 10-15mpg or if he stick with Toronto after his rookie years to be in CB's shadow (his extension would have been one year before Bosh left).
