Top Picks at the 2002 NBA Draft

A seven foot, five inch giant from China may be the NBA's next superstar. Here's a look at some of the basketball players who will be the top picks at the 2002 NBA Draft.

Yao Ming
Yao Ming is well over seven feet tall and close to 300 pounds which makes him kind of a freak. It also makes him a natural dunking, shot-blocking and rebounding machine. Yao is fast on his feet and a good outside shooter which makes him even more dangerous. In a few years, he could become Shaq's worst nightmare. Yao Ming will likely be chosen first overall at the 2002 NBA Draft.

Jay Williams
The former Duke point guard known as "Jason Williams" now likes to call himself "Jay Williams" so people won't confuse him with the flash and dash point guard, Jason Williams, who plays for the Memphis Grizzlies. Confused? Regardless of what he calls himself, there's nothing confusing about how this former Blue Devil plays basketball. He has explosive speed and can control the pace of a basketball game. Jay Williams will probably be picked second at the 2002 NBA Draft.

Drew Gooden
Drew Gooden's nickname is "The Truth" because "his game is real - it doesn't lie to you." That's according to Drew, anyway, who led the University of Kansas in points and rebounds and helped the Jayhawks advance to the Final Four. Drew wears number 0 because he says it's unpredictable. Kidzworld predicts Drew Gooden will be picked in the top five at the 2002 NBA Draft.

    i wanted to make this post for those interested in fitness. you can post anything, whether that be sports match you saw , weight training, a marathon you want to run, progress you've made, or even questions and advice on goals you want to achieve (though i might not be a professional, i think i've listened to enough and have read enough by specialist and professionals to help others). good luck to all that are trying to improve themselves.

    I do hip hop dancing and I'm also good at robot dancing. I'm not sure what it's called when people dance like when they move their bones in a way that makes it hit every beat in any electronic beat. But go on my profile and look at the video on there I posted and that's the type of dance I do along with hip hop.

    Who's better? I vote FC Barcelona because Messi, Neymar and Suares are SUPER POWER (but not in Italy).
