All-WNY 2000s team: How'd we do?

Here's my all-2000s team, which consists of the best first-teamers since I've covered high school basketball (1999-2000 to 2007-08).

The years listed are the seasons that the player made first team; POY is for Player of the Year. 

Check this previous post for a complete list of the first-teamers from the 2000s, as well as some readers' comments about who should be on the team.

Also take a look at posts discussing earlier eras (1960s, 1970s1980s, 1990s) as well as who should make the all-time All-WNY team.

First team
Charlie Comerford (Timon/St. Jude), 99-00, 00-01 POY
Paul Harris (Niagara Falls), 03-04 POY, 04-05 POY
Jonathan Flynn (Niagara Falls), 05-06 POY, 07-08 POY
Julius Page (Turner/Carroll), 98-99, 99-00 POY
Rodney Pierce (Hutch-Tech), 03-04, 04-05

Second team
Ray Blackburn (Lackawanna), 03-04, 04-05
Greg Gamble (Niagara Falls) 04-05
Robert Garrison (Niagara Falls) 04-05
Corey Herring (Timon/St. Jude) 00-01

Greg French (Traditional) 00-01
Terry George (Traditional) 00-01
Daryl Jacobs (Traditional) 99-00, 00-01
Jose Narvaez (Grover Cleveland) 03-04

Fourth team
Micole Parker (City Honors) 02-03 POY
Jeff Parmer (Niagara Falls) 01-02, 02-03
Rahshon Tabb (Niagara Falls) 07-08 POY
Don Juan Tyson (Traditional) 01-02, 02-03
Mike Williams (Riverside) 05-06

As I wrote in today's paper, four of the five first-teamers were locks. There were plenty of excruciating decisions, but, as is the goal with any All-WNY team, I hashed out one that enabled me to sleep at night, so I'm satisfied.

I'm sure everybody isn't :-) The comments section is below, or come charging down the lane at me during Wednesday's 10 p.m. live chat.
