View Full Version : Using your 20/20 hindsight, built a contender for your team through the draft

Everybody has issues with who their teams have drafted, and the draft is often a crap shoot, so with that in mind, given yourself a 10-year window (any ten years) and pick who your team should have picked. Obviously they might not have gotten as high a pick in later season had they selected properly, but assume their draft position stayed the same.



84: Michael Jordan
85 Karl Malone + Manute Bol
86 Dell Curry + Kevin Duckworth
87 Socttie Pippen + Reggie Miller (instead of Horace Grant, since they got Malone already)
88 Dan Majerel
89 Shawn Kemp + BJ Armstrong +Vlade Divac
90 Toni Kukoc
91 Nobody worth picking
92 PJ Brown
93 Nick Van Excel

Paul George over Al Farouq Aminu. But then we might not have gotten Blake and Chris Paul. Also anyone over Michael Olowakandi would have been fantastic.

I want to do this about 2000-2010 Lakers draft history,but the anger could be unbearable.
