And Harrison Barnes, the prescient pick of the guy who is "smarter than [he] think[s he is]"?  Oh yeah, nowhere to be seen.

Jimmer is a very talented and more importantly, a smart player. I hate the fact that he plays for BYU but you've got to give kudos when they are due.  He is the real deal.

JaJuan Johnson should be ahead of Jared Sullinger.  Sullinger is one dimensional and THE Ohio State Buckeyes are stacked.  Yes, he's a very formidable post player.  He has a big frame and excellent moves for a Freshman, but we're talking about player of the year here.  JaJuan Johnson does it all.  He can shoot eighteen footers all day, hit 3s, has great post moves, but most importantly plays superb defense and uses his lean body and massive wingspan to his advantage.  He blocks so many shots without risking the foul.  He also shoots 90% from the FT line.
