@David I get it. You are a Broncos fan. Of course you are going to think they are the best team. The season is 3 weeks old. Let the teams play a few more before touting your team. They are very good and perhaps have the best defense in the league. Minnesota's may be better, but that is a toss up also. Simien is OK. Do not go throwing him as great yet. I seem to remember a QB named Foles having 27 TD's and 2 INT's one year and look how that turned out.... Walt has him in the top 5 and I feel it could be any of those 5 as the top team by years end. You take this whole ranking thing way too seriously dude...

Summary: Tristan Thompson is hoping to capitalize off some of the top prospects in college basketball returning to school. Because guys like Harrison Barnes, Jared Sullinger and Perry Jones did not declare for the 2011 NBA Draft, Thompson could end up being a late-lottery prospect even though he may not be ready to contribute major minutes right away.
Player Comparison: Taj Gibson. Similar in size, Gibson and Thompson bring some of the same intangibles to the floor. Both guys crash the boards, are effective shot blockers, and have nice back-to-the-basket games. Gibson has found a role on the Bulls being an energy guy off the bench, and Thompson will have to follow suit early in his NBA career. Thompson does have more potential than Gibson and will have to work on his jump shot if he wants to maximize his ability.
