Title game was a draft bonanza

After watching the NBA draft, I shake my head even more over what I saw April 2 in the Georgia Dome between Florida and Ohio State -- a national championship game that featured five of the first 10 picks and eight players overall. Amazing. It might be a long time before we see that again.

Which player from that game will thrive the most? Greg Oden in Portland? How about Corey Brewer in Minnesota? Mike Conley in Memphis? Or what about Joakim Noah and his wild hair and clothes in Chicago?

The fans in Portland were certainly stoked about Oden as they stormed the Rose Garden floor during the team's draft party when the pick was announced. Check out this video from the Oregonian:
