The Next 4 Great Big men in the NBA:

1. Dwight Howard, Magic.
Howard will turn 21 on Friday, a frightening prospect for the rest of the league. Howard already is averaging 17.2 points and 13.7 rebounds. He needs to hone his post moves but has a developed body and is fast becoming a dominant force.
2. Greg Oden, Ohio State.
He's the surefire No. 1 pick in the upcoming draft. Heck, he would have been the No. 1 pick in the past two drafts if it weren't against the rules. He's a tremendous athlete who can block shots, rebound and run the floor. League personnel people figure his potential ranges from perennial All-Star to Hall of Famer.
3. Andris Biedrins, Warriors.
Unchained from the Golden State bench at 20 years old, Biedrins is a 7-footer who rebounds and finishes around the rim with raw power. He is averaging 11.4 points and 9.9 rebounds and is shooting 65.1 percent from the field. That's mostly because he relies on the dunk as his chief weapon. When he learns to make hook shots and gains some semblance of a jumper, he will be an All-Star.
4. Andrew Bynum, Lakers.
Bynum's progress has come only in flashes -- 20 points and 14 rebounds against the Timberwolves; 12 points, 13 rebounds and four blocks against the Bulls -- but those flashes have Lakers fans salivating. At 19, it may be three years or more before Bynum approaches Yao's level, but the physical tools are there.

Biedrins has the physical tools to be great but he has to develop his game to say the least! Right now, he is a solid contributor and should be known as that for now

The weird thing is, he can shoot a decent J from the high post. It's the free-throws that kill him.

Bosh has certainly proven already that he is a future superstar and close to one already! This writer is obviously a little jaded

Quite simply... he forgot about them. It happens when you just write for the sake of it.

I guess it can be considered that Bosh is already a great big man.

Bosh is already a great NBA big man... and Okafor has the game, but (so far) is injury riddled and inconsistent.

I really like his list. Glad to see up-and-comers like Bynum and Biedrins on the list. Dwight Howard is just plain obvious, as is Greg Oden.
