2008's Top 25, Under 25

This year's top 25, under 25 sees two guys depart - Tony Parker and Gerald Wallace - because they have since turned 26. Additionally, Luol Deng, Andrea Bargnani, and Yi Jianlian have been removed from the list after disappointing seasons. In their place, rookies Derrick Rose and Michael Beasley have entered. Rudy Gay, Leandro Barbosa, and Devin Harris have all entered the list. Deron Williams certainly saw himself make a big leap into the top 7 as did Josh Smith, moving from 19 to 13. At this time next year, I certainly expect last years top picks - Kevin Durant and Greg Oden - to make a jump in the rankings.

1.) LeBron James
2.) Chris Paul
3.) Dwight Howard
4.) Dwyane Wade
5.) Carmelo Anthony
6.) Amare Stoudamire
7.) Deron Williams
8.) Al Jefferson
9.) Chris Bosh
10.) Kevin Durant
11.) Greg Oden
12.) Kevin Martin
13.) Brandon Roy
14.) Andrew Bynum
15.) Josh Smith
16.) Derrick Rose
17.) Danny Granger
18.) Monta Ellis
19.) LaMarcus Aldridge
20.) Devin Harris
21.) Al Horford
22.) Michael Beasley
23.) Andre Iguodala
24.) Rudy Gay
25.) Leandro Barbosa
