Too bad the talent level drops off after the top 3.



And Gordon Gund will never see Lebron in a Cavs uniform.

The NBA does not want Lebron on the Cavs. They'd much rather he was on a club like the Knicks for instance. He's their marketing piece that they have been missing.

Ford is not ready.



He cant shoot a jumpshot to save his life.

The player going 4 could just as easily go 14.



Wake me when you Heat fans get a front office with an eye for talent.

Since I have been watching Basketball(early 80's) I have been a Laker fan....yeah because they were good. I have even been a fan in the off years, I don't change favorite teams....ever. But living here in Florida I have also become a Heat fan. Yeah, they have been weak on their drafts. But it seems to me that their luck is bad. With crappy positions from the lottery with a really bad team, they never could get better. I'm too lazy to look and see the actual draft positions, but if you do I'm sure you'll see for yourself. Free agency is how they became respectable. My point here, Das...

Tim Duncan fell to your team, the Spurs should have never recieved the first pick overall that year. That bad season was an injury plagued fluke, and the Spurs had the luck of the draw. There was no eye for talent there....it was the obvious choice.

Explain to me the following then:


Manu Ginobili
Tony Parker
Stephen Jackson
Malik Rose


half of our 8 man regular rotation.


Essentially you had the Spurs and Kings over in Europe for a long time.


There is multiple reasons why the West is better than the East. Global scouting is just one of many reasons.


Yes we got lucky with Tim Duncan, anyone knows that and everyone would of taken him at #1.



But what about those 4.

I agree with Das on Ford.I would much rather take Price in the second round and try to convert him into a PG.

I assume you are talking about Hollis Price?



He is a tweener at best.



Would be worth using a late second rounder on though, but I suspect you can get him after the draft if you really want him on the free agent market.

Hollis Price is clutch and he can really shoot lights out but he doesn't have height to play 2 guard but he can be a project to convert him into PG.He has the quickness to play PG and decent dribble.He can become a great pro if he can learn to play PG.

Lebron will be a bust

Melo will be good even doing reasonably well early but The Man of The Draft and the man who will make all other Yugoslavian players look like trash is Darko.

He has played 4 years of good pro basketball and is still 18, he's a good kid and I think a guy parents can actually have their kid look up too.

Darko is going to be AWESOME, but no player has ever been as hyped as LeBron, and he has been hyped for a reason... He will be amazing...

The kids overhyped often fizzle out.



We can all speculate one way or the other.



Lebron will not be a star right away, The Cavs will coddle him and the Cavs will underachieve. It will all depend on how badly Lebron wants to win, or if he simply wants himself to look good.



There will be a learning curve....no high school player has come right out and simply dominated like many feel will happen.....Be prepared for the naysayers to have their time to shine...after that it will depend on how badly Lebron wants to win.

Lebron went to wrong team for many reasons.Can Lebron get along with Davis,Miles and Cav rookie from last year (Forgot his name.)?Last year those three players couldn't get along and now you add Lebron to the mix.My guess is Ricky Davis will be shop around and I will be surprise to see Davis back in a Cavs uniform.

DaJuan Wagner...



Might of misspelt his first name though.


Went to Memphis for a year.


Look for Davis or Miles to be traded.
