Joining Larry Bird in NY will be, another Hall of Famer:

Dan Issel


Kane has corned the market on guys people thought too white, too slow, and too nonathletic to be a star in the NBA and were pathetically wrong.

My favorite 2 player team as of right now is the Lakers with Kareem/Moncrief

Intrigued by Denver (Isiah/DJ) as most other teams went after forwards and centers, while they already put together a complete backcourt, and I like it the way it fits together and who they could still grab for their front court to make it all really work.

After 18 months with their Bigs, the Littles were: 46% less likely to use illegal drugs, 27% less likely to use alcohol, 52% less likely to skip school, 37% less likely to skip a class

To me, the real talent in this era is at the top of the list of great big men. The big men of this era were all-time dominant big men. I really think to make the best teams in this format, you have to start from the inside out. I love the Isiah/Moncrief pairing but am afraid no matter who they put with those guys, those bigs are not going to be able to handle the Kareems, Gilmores, Cowens, Waltons, Parishs and McHales of this era.

Today's game is built differently than that era's was. The best of the best talent is at PG and the wing and the league plays small. You can't build a team in this year's format based around the best players you have being guards. You will be dominated.

But we will see who Denver adds.

Thought everyone had a good day.  No headscratchers.  Everyone drafted seemed to within the realm of 2nd round value. 

I like some combos better than others but, besides that, a good day for drafting.

I disagree in that you need a "dominate" big to win here.  There are also several quality bigs left on the board IMO who will be able to hold their own against those guys.  Just like the Kareems, Gilmores, Cowens, Waltons, Parishs and McHales didn't steamroll their way to a championship every year, and actually lost playoff series to teams without "dominate" bigs on occassion, I think the same could happen here if a team is constructed right.

I think there's a lack of quality guards though. 

Though I'm not saying I have Denver as a favorite, just interesting that they built outside-in.  I still think they have as good a chance as just about everybody else.

Oh well, sucks for Denver that you're on the panel, and I'm just an observer  ;D

Absolutely agree.  I don't think there was a bad choice made today.
