    Bargain in the Second Round.

    I've been thinking, anyone with half a brain could pick a Lebron James at number one. And anyone could be completely wrong with their number one (Kwame Brown, Andrew Bogut [maybe but he's certainly a liability]).

    But what about the real bargains from the second round, or late first round? Take a look at Gilbert Arenas. He was picked number 31 in 2001 and his injury is making the Washington Wizards the LA Clippers of the East. Or Mehmet Okur at the 38th pick the same draft class.

    Other than those already mentioned. Manu Ginobli in 1999 taken Number 57. Talk about a steal. Almost dead last in the Second round.

    Does anyone else see the resemblance?

    Monta Ellis was taken 40th overall.
    Ben Wallace was undrafted.
    Mario Chalmers was a steal this past draft.
    Paul Millsap was a steal at 47.
    Ramon Sessions is looking to be pretty slick as a #56 overall.

    Is it really necessary for me to ask "your opinions?"

    Anyways, I was going to mention michael Redd and why I cant consider him to be overrated, especially how low he was. Its almost as if the lower you are, you cant be overrated.

    Does anyone else see the resemblance?
