Tonight was further proof that the 2006 NBA Draft Class might be one of the worst of all time. Still, the Sophomores put on a show tonight!

Crazy Stat Lines

  • Chris Paul missed a triple double by one steal- 16 points, 17 dimes, and 9 steals
  • MVP David Lee hit everything- 30 points, 11 boards, and 4 dimes
  • Monta Ellis acted like it was a dunk contest out there- 28 points on 13 for 16 shooting

On a side note, can you imagine if the Warriors drafted David Lee instead of Ike Diogu? Think the Warriors' rebounding problems would be solved? There's a lot to like about Lee.

If you find any video clips of the dunkfest that was the Sophomore domination, definitely link to them in the comments. Bonus points if you can collect ELLIS TO THE RIM clips.
