The #19th pick

I'm pretty new on here but a big fan of my Atlanta teams. With that said I think we are only a few pieces away from 1-3 in the eastern conf. I have also heard a lot of people say the history of the 19th pick isn't good.. what??? What does that matter? Technically it depends on talent as well as heart and willingness to learn and get better. There plenty players who was picked late in the draft and I would take them on the hawks all day. My plan for the pick take a pg, like Maynor or even a sf like Casspi. Then resign Bibby for maybe 2-3 years this year to start and the next to come off the bench. Sign a few good role players like Gortat or the birdman Anderson and we good.

OK, that list isn't all that encouraging looking at the history of the 19th pick. Maybe Teague could be our Rod Strickland?

Ok u jus gave me a list of just pick 19s. That's nice u went thru such detail but that's not wut I'm sayin I could also give you a list of players who went after 19 and became allstars. Y'all talkin bout pick 19 like its sum kind of bad omen or sumthin lol. That's wut scouting is for if u pick somebody sorry that's your fault jus like when we got Shelden Williams we coulda took bpa cuz it wasn't him.
