And the nominees are...

1. Jim Jackson, Houston Rockets

Okay, I have to admit, I started this blog with JJ in mind. I think he's so underappreciated, both in terms of how he plays and how he looks. This boy is fiiiiiiiiiiiine!! He works hard, plays hard and yet he's been on 10 teams in 12 years. Not only that, I've Googled him and Yahoo'd him and the best picture I could find was on some random Mexican website - I'm not kidding. Enough Kobe, more JJ!!

2. Carmelo Anthony, Denver Nuggets

So how come when I emailed this picture of Melo to my best friend, she asked me who that girl was?! His smile may be pretty but look at those muscles! He's all man and definitely a Top 5 nominee. But yes, he does have the prettiest smile in the league.

*Sidenote: Both the Rockets and the Nuggets lost tonight. I know I said stats don't really matter, but at the same time, you're not going to find many Hornets or Bulls up in here.

3. Allen Iverson, Philly 76ers

The perennial favorite. The eyes, the smile...'nuff said.

4. Emeka Okafor, Charlotte Bobcats (exception to the really really bad team rule)

Taller, more athletic version of Taye Diggs. If he sings too I'm moving to Charlotte.

5. Anderson Varejao, Cleveland Cavaliers

This guy is Chad Michael Murray with a mop top. If he gets better, the girls will come a-knockin. If he doesn't, well there's always the WB.

6. Dwyane Wade, Miami Heat

OH MY GOD is he hot! And he's only just started to blow up the league. He's humble, generous, and can take over games like "that other guard." DWade belongs in his own category - HOT and only getting HOTTER!

7. Quentin Richardson, Phoenix Suns

Remember that nasty skank rule? The first victim is Q here. Look at that smile - he's adorable. And he signed a fat contract with the rising Suns. And yet...........Brandy?!?!? Why Q, why???? That's it, until he comes to his senses, he will be known only as YQY. So sad. Like watching a car accident in slow just want to yell NOOOOOOOOOO STOOOOOOOOP!

8-10. The White Boys

Wally Szczerbiak, Minnesota T-Wolves, is the clear frontrunner here. Mr. GQ - who had a fan come out from the stands(!) in the middle of a game(!) to try to kiss him (!) - speaks for himself. But pretty boy has some competition. Kyle Korver, Philly, is like the Backstreet Boy Wonder. He's more hair than face, but so are most of the boy bands out least he has skills (watch your back, Peja) so we'll keep him in the running. Casey Jacobsen, Phoenix Suns, is the darkhorse (lighthorse?) white boy. He's an almost-Ivy (Stanford) prep who starts on the bench, but he's younger than Wally and not as boyish as Kyle. Plus his picture is twice as big as both Wally and Kyle's put together so we'll see.

To be continued...
