When I look back at how we have drafted, we have not had all that much success have we? Hopfully with another strong selection in the upcoming draft we can reverse the trend.
Hind sight is a wonderful thing, but just for fun if we drafted the bolded players instead of our real selections..
PG - Knight / Lawson
SG - Wade / Stuckey
SF - Prince / Wallace
PF - Lee / Jerebko / Blair
C - Monroe / Gortat / Blair
