LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. -- With Kobe Bryant dominating the chatter and many general managers disappointed about who didn't show up, the Orlando predraft camp got fully under way on Wednesday.

For the most part the talent was surprisingly strong, with a number of players putting on intriguing performances.

Still, one longtime GM put it all in perspective: "There are six to 10 guys here who will stick in the league. Right now it's a process of elimination."

Here are the players who stood out -- for good and bad -- in the first day of games, based in part on conversations with numerous GMs and scouts.
