Collison is a solid player now, and Pavlovic just started getting playing time this year, and the other guys have had some nice games this past year, they will contribuate well especially being late 1st round picks.

I'd go with 2003 over 96.

I'll think I have to say that '96 draft is better, atleast now at this point.
Hard to say how good this year's draft will be... :/

I honestly think 03 was better than 96...Although, right now, 96 has more bonafide superstars than 03, 03 has already better all round players, and far more depth IMO

At least at that time not many guys were serious in selecting a high school kid in the lottery.

Anyway, I still can't stop lol over a decision by the Knicks that brought in Frederic Weis when Ron Artest was still on the board.
