No need for guessing here. LeBron James obviously takes the spot of the 2003 draft.
The No. 1 pick, and perhaps the most highly-anticipated player to enter the league, LeBron has proven to be one of the best.
His composure late in games has been called into question, but there is no doubt about what the two-time MVP has been able to do throughout the game. To say the least, he is the definition of a game changer.
James has yet to capture a championship, but he has put himself in good position to capture one under the reign of Pat Riley, and teaming up with Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh.
LeBron will no doubt continue to be the player he is, and will continue to carry an impact on the entire league for many years to come. Hate him or not, LeBron is the center of the NBA.
Honorable Mention: Dwyane Wade. Tough call between Wade and Carmelo Anthony, but in the end, the ring wins. Carmelo has a lot of work ahead of him in New York, but we will have to see if he ever gets his due. Wade, on the other hand, has proven year in and year out that he is in the top five in the league. He has had some big injuries, but in the end, he proves his value to the Heat.
