Round 1, pick 10

10. Josh Smith
Why J-Smoove at ten you ask? Many fantasyphiles would scream for the likes of D.Lee, Deron (receding) Williams, or the man they call STAT. The combination of numbers "20 and 10" holds great pull in fantasy land, and for good reason. However, where can you find a statistical smorgasbord a la Josh Smith? In Atlanta, I suppose. While he may not return to the days of a 3 block per average, Smitty sports a 2 to 1 assist to turnover ratio, and you can bank on a minimum 3.5 combined defensive stats a game. If he can muster a respectable ft% near 70 this season, you can toss in 16ppgs and 9rpgs and call the man top 5. What's that? I can still hear you screaming for David Lee! Well, wear out your voices amigos and don't let the rebound numbers (New York's next best rebounder last year was a tie in which nobody won between Danilo Gallinari and Al Harrington) or increase in assists (fancy dimes to ones self won't be counted in G-State) sway you. Take a chance on percentages, take a chance on freakish athleticism, take a chance on a dude who turns 25 this year and is entering his prime.
