Which part, Cassell, Kurt Thomas? Alot of Point Guards, which isn't surprising.

I'm just wondering who the hell voted for LeBron for "Which player does the most with least?"

Just depends on how you read the question... least team, or least personal talent.

Yeah I'm sure that GM was thinking least talent on the team.

Oh. Good point.

All the other selections seemed predicated on physical tools, so I just figured that one came from Kevin McHale...but, yeah, that must be what the guy meant.

I guess some GM make a case of Diop's defense since its noticeable performance in the game 7 of the 2006 western conference finals. he shut Duncan down in a big way and besides Manu's stupid foul he was the reason Dallas advanced to the finals to get their butt kicked by Wade. If not for Diop's defense SA would finally have repeated :(

Actually, Mike hasn't distinguished himself as a standout leader. Great player, great team guy. May not be headed for coaching, though.
