Default Re: The 1998 Draft Makes Me Sick (on nbatv right now)

This draft is just one of many illustrations of what a dunce Rick Pitino was and why he should never be allowed near an NBA team again.

Pitino wanted Dirk very badly - then found out that Dallas was trading up to get him. Well, why not swap Antoine Walker for a top-5 pick and bypass Dallas? 'Toine was very highly regarded at the time - someone would have bit. Dirk and 'Toine were both 4's - you dont need both of them anyway.

Then if Pierce still slides to 10, take him too (remember, no one was expecting PP to slide.)
