2002 draft redo
Haven't seen it yet so I figured I would start it.
1. Yao Ming-Houston
2. Amar'e Stoudemire-Chicago
3. Carlos Boozer-Golden St.
4. Caron Butler- Memphis
5. Tayshaun Prince-Denver
6. Jay Williams (Lost stock because of his motorcycle accident, although they wouldn't have known then)-Cleveland
7. Nene Hilario-New York
8. Mike Dunleavy Jr.- LA Clippers
9. Drew Gooden-Phoenix
10. John Salmons-Miami
11. Luis Scola-Washington
12. Chris Wilcox-LA Clippers
13. Roger Mason-Milwaukee
14. Nenad Krstic-Indiana
Not really based on team needs just talent, but some would fit to need.
John Salmons is too low
Amar'e Stoudemire is #1 easy
It's funny that this draft class has no PGs. Jay does not count bc he was out.
Ronald Murry and Juan Dixon are more like SGs.
SpeedyClaxton was like the only nonterrible PG, and he has not been playing for 2 years.
WORST PG class ever...
wow the 2002 draft sucked with only a few exceptions
Dunleavy is not better than any of the guys you have him in front of. He needs to be 14th.
I would give Salmons the age over Dunleavy right now and Nenad Kristic should be higher. Next year when he gets consistent minutes you will see it.
I believe John Salmons should be 6th and Roger Mason 5th based on what theses guys are doing right now for their teams. Roger Mason is the go-to player on the perimeter now and in late game situations and John Salmons is averaging 18 points per game this year on a team who is 1 up on the celtics in the playoffs
There is no way that Dunleavy is 14th. He averaged 19 ppg last season. He has been a consistent double figure scorer and blossomed once he got in the right situation--aka away from Golden State. Obviously the injury hurt him this year, but hopefully he can recover. I would say that Salmons and possibly Scola are ahead of Dunleavy though, but Dunleavy is definitely better than Mason and Wilcox. Kristic pre-injury would prob be higher than Dunleavy.
I would say that Jay Williams is #3 and possibly higher. Although Yao and Amare have been really, really good. If you could keep Jay from getting on that motorcycle then I'm convinced you would have one of the best pg's in the league today. Sure he struggled some his rookie season, but he was playing beside black-hole Jamal Crawford and under Bill Cartwright who is a horrible coach who ran a &$#%#&@! version of the triangle offense.
I agree about Jay Williams. he would have been Rose before Rose was Rose.
yeah he was solid... he put a triple-double against jason kidd so he could have been one of the best pgs today but it never happened unfortunately
