In certain years, the NBA draft is mostly about one player who will transform a team - Shaquille O'Neal or Patrick Ewing, Yao Ming or LeBron James. The 2005 draft, which will be held tonight at the theater inside New York's Madison Square Garden, is mostly about one position - point guard. As a result, the future of many teams will be changed for the better. After Utah center Andrew Bogut and North Carolina forward Marvin Williams are announced as the first two picks, no fewer than five point guards are expected to be taken in the first round.

Don't write off Lakers Shandel Richardson Sun Sentinel It's still kind of hard to write off the Lakers. You have to think a team with Kobe Bryant, Steve Nash and Dwight Howard will at some point get things together. The Lakers will be the surprise team of the second half of the season because they simply have too much talent to miss the playoffs. We've seen it in spurts, now expect them to sustain it for long stretches. The key for them, just like every other team, is staying healthy.

They look nothing alike, the three guards of Illinois, yet people have the darnedest time separating them. Which is the best? The most indispensable? The best shooter? The toughest defender? The top NBA prospect? There is Dee Brown, the Big Ten Player of the Year, a streak shooter with braids, a bright orange mouthpiece and the quickness to pick a player's pocket with the game on the line. There is Luther Head, who escaped a controversial scrape with the law after a burglary at an off-campus apartment before last season to remain on the team - and became not only the Illini's leading scorer this season, but their most productive three-point shooter as well.

INDIANAPOLIS -- UCLA coach Ben Howland gestured with his left hand to the five starters who sat alongside him at Sunday's news conference and spoke with pride - not concern - about their possible NBA talent. "A good problem is having players that are leaving early for the NBA," Howland said the day before his team fell, 73-57, to Florida in the national championship game. "The more NBA players - we've got a number of them sitting right up here to my left - they're going to be future NBA players, without question, without a doubt.

ROSEMONT, Ill. - Most of the nearly 17,000 orange-clad fans inside Allstate Arena never gave up on the No. 1-ranked team in America, but you have to think the rest of America had. If the word "frauds" hadn't already escaped the lips of millions watching Arizona slowly pull away from Illinois, viewers knew that they'd be able to say it in only four more minutes. Yet in the blink of an eye, the flash of a white jersey, the flick of an orange-banded wrist, Illinois had restored its reputation and probably convinced a lot of fans for good.

Another hectic NBA trade deadline passed Thursday. Over the past few days, we saw players such as Carmelo Anthony, Deron Williams, Gerald Wallace, Kendrick Perkins, Baron Davis, Devin Harris, and the immortal Joel Przybilla switch jerseys as teams recalibrated for a playoff run. Meanwhile, top-tier teams such as the Lakers, Heat, Bulls, Magic and Spurs stood pat. It will be interesting to see if any of the pre-deadline deals will shift the...

Deron Williams Todd M. Adams Orlando Sentinel Recently, USA Basketball took a different approach to choosing its roster, giving more thought to building a cohesive team. That is why the biggest name left off the team is bound to come from the NBA's strongest position, point guard. For instance, the Clippers' Chauncey Billups and Thunder's Russell Westbrook, who made the 20-man cut, really have no chance at making the team. That's because there are three phenomenal players at that position in the Clippers' Chris Paul, Nets' Deron Williams and Bulls' Derrick Rose.

The Nets never trailed and built a 15-point lead in the first quarter. New Jersey's biggest advantage was 24 late in the fourth, as it won consecutive home games for the first time this season.

Records through Friday (last week's rank). 1. Spurs 48-10 (1): As Gregg Popovich says, they haven't dominated anyone … on pace to beat 68. 2. Bulls 39-17 (5): Presumably with a shooting guard, they would be on a 72-victory pace. 3. Heat 43-16 (2): Oops: Just learned East has another contender bigger than they are. 4. Mavericks 41-16 (4): Team Lakers catch or play back-to-back series on road goes 14-1. 5. Celtics 41-15 (3): Personally, I would say it wasn't time to start building for future.
