I struggled with this pick, because there truly are quite a few ways I could go with it. There are some needs, there are some HOF'ers still on the board. But I'm going with a current player, due to stats like 19 PPG, 10 RPG, 2 APG.

Furthermore, when a guy can play multiple positions, that versatility is at a premium. In 2004-2005, He was the 2nd player in NBA history to average in the top five in rebounding and steals since the league started to track steals in 1973. He did it again in 2005-06.

The 2005-06 NBA season was perhaps the best season of his career. He was the only player in the NBA ranked in the top 20 in points, rebounds, steals, blocks, field goal percentage and minutes.

Throw in a couple of All-Star appearances, and I just can't pass on a guy who can truly fill up the stat sheet:
