    watching the playoffs and seeign all the young superstars, (dwight Howard, Chris Paul, Lebron James, Amare Stoudamire) Throw in Durant and a few others, and the future in the NBA looks bright.

    You can add Oden to that list next year. His presence could also lift Aldridge to an all-star level. As an example, look at Amare Stoudemire after Shaq got to Phoenix.

    You didn't even mention the guy I think should be Rookie of the Year. Al Horford of Atlanta is an absolute beast in the paint. He is not as flashy as some of the others you mentioned but you can build a team around a guy like that. He does not miss a rebound and he has a decent inside offensive game that will only get better with experience.

    I am a huge Durant fan, but I still think Horford contributed more than any other rookie. Atlanta would not be in the playoffs for the first time this century without him.

    You're certainly correct about Horford - he should be a shoo-in for ROY, even though I'm a big Durant fan. He basically carried the Hawks all year.
