What do you think the best draft year was?
 
I would go with the 2003 draft. That is the one with Bosh, James, Melo and Wade right? I am only fourteen so I don't know too much about the draft years before I was born. That is the best one that I have seen.

Some of the best are....

1960: Oscar Robertson and Jerry West going 1 and 2, enough said

1984: Michael Jordan, Hakeem Olajuwon, Charles Barkley and John Stockton.

1996: Steve Nash, Kobe Bryant, Allen Iverson, Jermaine O'Neal, and Ray Allen

2003: LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh, and Carmelo Anthony

Ok thanks for the info. Like I said I am only 14 so I don't know too much about the older players draft years.

Definately '84. I think '03 has a lot of potential I think it just depends on how well the rest of the class besides LeBron and D-Wade do.

1996
 
I definitly think it would have to be 1996:
Allen Iverson, Marcus Camby, Shareef Abdur Rahim, Stephon Marbury, Ray Allen, Antoine Walker, Kobe Bryant, Peja Stojakavic, Steve Nash, Jermaine O'neal, Zydrunas llgauskus..and thats just the first round...

I like the old school 1960 draft (back when only 7 or 8 people were drafted at a time): Oscar Robertson followed by Jerry West.

I really like the 1999 draft:
Elton Brand, Steve Francis, Baron Davis, Wally Szerbiak, Richard Hamilton, Andre Miller, Shawn Marion, Jason Terry, Corey Maggette, Ron Artest, James Posey, Andrei Kirilenko.

A lot of our future superstars have come in the 2003 draft:
Lebron James, Carmelo Anthony, Chris Bosh, Dwayne Wade, Chris Kaman, Kirk Hinrich, TJ Ford, Luke Ridnour, David West (Hes getting good), Boris Diaw, Josh Howard (what a steal at pick 29!)

You have to put up here 1984 only because of the four players:
Hakeem Olajawon, Michael Jorgan, Charles Barkley, John Stockton

oldschool32 07-14-2006 10:00 AM

yea 1996 is the best draft class, then 84' than 03.

Bulls_Fan20 07-14-2006 10:33 AM

'84 '96 and '03 are top three no doubt, but don't forget about '85. Patrick Ewing, Karl Malone, Charles Oakley, Joe Dumars, Chris Mullin, Arvydas Sabonis, Spud Webb, Manute Bol :hammerhead: are all household names, and pretty good players too.

marny_navis 07-16-2006 08:55 PM

You're only 14 Italy? I'm only 13. I like the 2003 draft b/c of Melo, Bosh, Flash, Bron, and Kirk Hinrich. That was the first one that I watched too.

eauclaire447 10-16-2006 05:30 PM

those were the best from every draft

adrenalize 10-16-2006 09:14 PM

1984: Come on, it had Jordan!! However, for me it was also the worst EVER!! Thats when my Blazers picked Sam Bowie over Jordan. I still imagine sometimes a team of Porter, Jordan, Drexler, Kersey and the Duck and what might have been. <sigh>

:cry:

eauclaire447 10-19-2006 10:51 AM

1970 was a good one too
