I know they say big men develop slower than their smaller counterparts, but Gino's regressed big time.

Chad Ford: (1:28 PM ET ) Right now it looks that way ... though at the end of last season Bargnani looked like he was worth a No. 1 pick. I think this does show you how much size is valued in the draft. There's a reason that only one guy under 6-6 has been drafted No. 1 in the past 20 years.

Chad Ford: (1:31 PM ET ) Just a follow-up to the first question. The other guy Colangelo really liked in the draft was Rudy Gay. Given his stellar play for Memphis this year ... I'm not sure he won't end up being the best player in the class. He's got so much potential on size and talent. If he keeps playing this aggressive (the knock on him in college) he'll live up to his early hype. Remember, most scouts had Gay ranked as the No. 1 prospect going into the summer of 2006.
