    Scola and slight mention of Yao.


    There are some nights where you watch Luis Scola(notes), and you wonder if anyone can guard him. If anyone in the league can stay with him, should he ever deign to try and strive for 22 points per game, or if those Houston point guards (though they are getting better) actually made good entry passes.

    This goes well beyond his 27-point average in this summer's world championships, or the way he averaged 20 and 10 for all of last March. Just watch him play. At times, he seems like the most effortless scorer on the court.

    At center? Well, I think Yao Ming's(notes) pre-injury still leaves him sadly underrated. People should be ruing his recent stretch of injuries like they rue Bill Walton's injuries after his MVP turn in 1977, because Yao was nearly as good from 2005-07.
