not sure what u mean but i can guarantee you that my answer is not Todd Fuller
Great Draft..4 Future Hall of Famers in Kobe,Iverson,Nash & Ray Allen..10 of those guys have made an AllStar Team..And Camby might've if it wasn't for him being injured alot...Looking back at that draft..Kobe is the undisputed best player from it..I remember John Calipari really wanted to draft Kobe..But upper management felt Kittles was the safer pick..I also remember Jerry West making the bold statement saying ''years from now when we look back at this draft..Kobe might turn out to be its best player..And he was right...If i had to do it again..My top 10 will be like this..
Is Iverson for sure better than Nash?
I'll take Marbury ovr Abdur-Rahim and maybe Camby over Jermaine O'neal
Kobe first pick though
Should we rank them or say who'd we draft?
If it's a re-draft then:
AI and Nash is a hard choice, if I recieved AI as a finished product, I'd take a raw AI over a raw Nash. I think in a different system he could develop into a different player.
Same thing with Marbury and Rahim.
And you can't say that if I had O'Neal, he'd hurt himself again, can you? Then I'd take him over Camby, hoping to get lucky and aquire an all-star (Maybe I'd be a stupid GM, who passed on a healthy Camby and the glass man would get hurt even sooner, I'd be called a complete moron, as I knew what I was getting)
1 Bryant, Kobe to Philadelphia 76ers..should have drafted him ,..kept his rights until he decided to play for his semi hometown...
2 Steve Nash to Toronto Raptors...They should have traded down or flat out picked Nash to man that roster in its first years..
3 Allen Iverson to Vancouver Grizzlies- Iverson should have been drafted a little lower than the # 1 pick...it might have humbled him a little bit and given the upstart Grizzles a hall of famer in his prime...
4 Ray Allen to Milwaukee Bucks...Should have never been drafted after Steph...
5 Marcus Camby to T'Wolves...KG and the Camby in their prime would have been sick...
scarecrow, The Raptors had the reigning rookie of the year at PG in Stoudemire. In 1996 drafting Nash would have seemed redundant.
Also does anybody think Ben Wallace would have been a top 10 pick if the draft were redone instead of being undrafted?
And been better for it...maybe got a top 10 pick at that....they lost Damon very shortly after and Nash is still going strong....
