After he had a very successful freshman year at Georgia Tech, Bosh decided to make the transition to the NBA. He was drafted fourth overall by the Toronto Raptors in the 2003 draft and is the Raptors all time leading scorer. In 2010, he signed with the Miami Heat, where he won an NBA championship in 2012. He is an 8 time NBA All-Star and has a Gold Medal from the 2008 Olympics.

Bynum started his career at Tech after transferring from the University of Arizona. While at Tech, he helped lead the team to the Final Four, where he hit the game winning shot to make it to the championship game. After going undrafted out of college, he played a year with the Warriors before going overseas for a few seasons. Most recently, he has spent the last four years as a role player on the Detroit Pistons.

Much like Bosh, Favors only played one year at Tech. He decided to skip the rest of his college years to play in the NBA, where he was drafted 3rd overall by the Nets. In his first season with the Nets, he was traded to the Utah Jazz as part of the Deron Williams trade. He is currently coming off the bench as a role player while Paul Millsap commands the PF position for the JAzz. Millsap is an impending FA and may get traded, so expect Favors’ minutes to dramatically increase next season.

Jack was also a part of the Final Four team that went to the National Championship in 2004. He decided to skip his final year of eligibility though to enter the draft and was taken by the Nuggets with the 22nd pick. He was traded on draft night to the Trailblazers where he spent his first three NBA seasons. Since then he has played for the Pacers, Raptors, Hornets, and Warriors. He has found a home with Golden State, backing up Stephen Curry and posting very good statistics across the board.

After spending all four years of eligibility with Georgia Tech, Morrow went undrafted out of college. He was signed by the Golden State Warriors and quickly made a name for himself as one of the best 3 point shooters in the NBA. He has consistently scored double digit PPG while shooting above 40% from behind the 3 point line with the Warriors, Nets, Hawks and now the Mavericks. He was traded to the Mavericks on February 21st, 2013 at the trade deadline and should receive more playing time than he was getting with the Hawks.

Shumpert played three years for Georgia Tech before opting for the NBA. He was drafted by the Knicks with the 17th pick in the 2011 NBA draft. He is well respected around the league as a very good defensive PG and rotation player. During the 2012 playoffs, Shumpert tore his ACL in his knee and missed the first half of the 2013 season. He is back playing for the Knicks and looks to be healthy again.

Thaddeus Young- SF/PF

Young is another one year wonder for Georgia Tech. After his freshman season he went into the NBA draft and was selected by Philadelphia with the 12th pick. Young has turned into a very effective sixth man for the 76ers by posting double digit PPG and scoring efficiently. Young is still a young player and he should soon find a starting role in the league.
