Yea I was glad he fell to me. I figured Melo would pick up Ewing and I would get Robinson (speaking of that I think Barkley was a reach with the 3rd pick, but thats just me). I figured that he had his best stats (with a ridiculous 4 block a game), was all-NBA 1st team, and was 27, which is generally when a player is in his over-all prime.

Wasn't really a huge fan, but I guess I have no choice but to take...

1991 Karl Malone



29 ppg, 11.8 rpg, 53% from the field

He was in all-out beast-mode around then.

Glad you picked up Ewing. He definitely deserved to be picked near the top.

Draft basically going how you'd expect it to so far. Barkley you can argue may have been a reach, but no doubt he was an elite beast too

Barkley was fine at #4. He actually played defense that year, was a great "big game" player, had elite stats and came a couple of clutch MJ/Paxson plays from winning in the finals. There actually isn't much separating the players after the clear top 2, and maybe Shaq. D-Rob is great, but in the playoffs it's a different story. I was considering taking him because I think on the right team where he doesn't have to do as much offensively he could be really deadly and more realiable, but the playoff card is too easy to bring up with him.

I wouldn't say Barkley was a bad pick, but within this draft your better served to get a top-4 C (Shaq, Hakeem, Ewing, Robinson) with your first round pick if possible to put yourself in the best position to win. It's just my opinion that you start your team with a Center first if possible. (unless the talent gap between the best Center compared to the best player available is enough to justify picking the other player)

FYI, had Barkley been available, I would have probably taken him over Malone. Statistics and all aside, I think Chuck was a slightly better player at his peak.

Robinson's always had a bit of an issue in the playoffs and being a certified #1 guy. He was a specimen and brought it on both sides of the court and had gaudy numbers to show, as most of these guys do, but the personality is a bit of a question mark. Great person, but didn't have the killer instinct of the other guys we're talking about up here.

Of course now that Malone's gone, that's another guy I love trashing about finishing lol. I kinda feel bad when it's Robinson, but the Mailman? The gloves come off :)

Of course again we gotta consider that it was the 90s and everyone at some point was losing to MJ....

It's a dream-team. Robinson's not the guy who's going to be taking any last shots or anything. He was a beast that year, but he was insane defensively in his prime.
