Default This Could Of Been Our Team

I'm doing this just for fun but had we drafted better over the years this could of who ended up with.it would had ben no reason to do the wright trade for jrich had we got things right.

pg: Chris Paul
sg: Rudy Gay
sf: Gerald Wallace
pf: Brandon Wright
C: Dwight Howard

Bench DJ,Matt Carrol,Walter H,(prob some others we brough on)

I mean that starting 5 looks sick damn kinda pisses me off when I see what could of been but oh well we are getting better and should be in the playoffs next season.

Dwight Howard had nothing to do with drafting better.Magic took him 1st overall leaving you with Emeka.You guys never had a opportunity to draft him.

No we didn't! We had the the FOURTH overall pick gifted to us by Stern as an expansion franchise and Bernie swapped with the Clippers for the 2nd overall pick for a 2nd or two.

We never had the 1st.

There's no need in talking about what we could've been. Even with all of those "all-stars," there's no guarantee they would've blossomed in our system like they have in their own respective systems.

Adding Dwight Howard in there is understandable. Like in the NFL, the Bobcats should have gotten the 1st pick as an expansion team and Orlando was close to passing on Howard for Okafor; but we also might have taken Okafor with the 1st pick so who knows. The next year, it would have been feasible for us to get Paul b/c I believe we passed on packaging the 5th and 13th to move up; I think we would have picked CP3 over Deron b/c he is local.

After that it gets very fuzzy. CP3 + Howard would have been a force no matter the depth around them. We still would have been a lotto team b/c of youth but not #3 and I think we would have wound up with Ronnie Brewer, Randy Foye, or Ammo. We wouldn't have needed a high profile guy to get butts in the seats and Foye was a 1/2 and we obviously wouldn't need a 1 so I think we would have taken Brewer.

You really can't go any further b/c a team of CP3, Howard, Crash, and Brewer is incredibly different from what we ended up with and we don't know how they would have grown as players or as a team. Also, who knows what free agency moves we would have made by that point. What is for certain is we would be much, much better today... Going to go cry in a corner somewhere after thinking about it.
