All generation draft. (meaning anyone who has ever put on an NBA jersey is avail, old and new).

The 1st pick was MJ.

Who do you take with your 2nd pick and why?

Do you go with Magic Johnson, Bird, Shaq, Wilt, ect.

Discuss.

Has to be Magic, I wouldn't pick him over Jordan though even though he was the more gifted all round player Jordan was Jordan.

I'd say Wilt Chamberlain. It's hard to compare his numbers to Magic's because they played in different eras, but at 7'1" 275lbs with that kind of talent, it's never been seen since. Dirk Nowitzski doesn't even come close and he had a 3point line to work with. Wilt would have scored a lot more if coaches didn't instruct him to start sharing the ball more and focus on defense later in his career.

This is tricky. I thought about Magic, but then again he came straight in to play for a winning organization that had a league mvp. It would be totally different for him coming in to bottom franchise and turning it into a contender.

I thought about Kareem and he is more than likely a good choice, but he ended up leaving his franchise within 5 years. Don't want my franchise player to leave that quickly.

Shaq the same goes for him, he left Orlando in 4 years.

Wilt ended up being traded a few times.

So I might go with Russell as the #2, but then again Russell came into the league and played with the league MVP in Cousy.

So I may have to think Hakeem or Bird if based on how good they were coming in and how long they stayed with their franchises and the type of situation the franchise was in.

Shaq. I don't think he Is the second best player ever, but I would built a team around shaq. I've never seen a person so dominate in the paint

Why was my thread moved? This isn't a comparisons thread. I don't understand the mods on this site sometime. Now its moved to an area where it will die. Can I get some clarification on why this was moved?

A comparison is when you're comparing 2 or more things. What am I comparing in this thread?

I would choose a dominant big man, those are hard to find!

Examples:
David "The Admiral" Robinson
Wilt Chamberlain
Bill Russell
Kareem
Hakeem Olajuwon
Ewing
Shaw
Parish
Etc. ..

I completely agree with this...but I would take Kareem over the Big O.

Bill Russell.
I want to win and I would pick the greatest winner of all time. A lot of player has stats but didn't know how to win. Shaquille O'Neal would be my next choice.
