Personally, I think Brandon Roy takes B-Diddy's place at the wild card. Have the GS Warriors made a bang on the scene this season the way Roy and his Blazers have? Portland entered this season being thought of as another unseeded, non-playoff-contending team, who will do even worse since their number one draft pick of the 2007 NBA Draft is out due to microfrastructure surgery. Roy showed that he worked his way off, and even at the 2 guard position, proved that he's more than willing to share the ball, and score 20 a night at the same time. The ONLY reason some coaches may overlook him during the selection process of the reserves is this: he's a sophomore. But besides that, I don't see any other legit excuse.
