Wow that is a shock.  Sully has been playing really well.  I know he isn't a contender for rookie of the year or anything, but I would have thought him a top 6 or 7 rookies this year.  Hmmm.

I can't see Zeller over Sully.

Sully is just better.  He crushes Zeller in terms of FG% and rebound rate.

Zeller should be over Sully, but Sully still should have made it. :(

Shved deserve in too. He was one of the best rookies in the first month or two.

If you're putting Zeller and Shved on the team, who are you booting to make room for Sully?
