The Do Over Lottery Draft 2004
Draft day is always a gamble and looking back at the 2004 draft, then looking at what those players have been doing since joining the NBA, I've decided to redo this draft in the way that would of played out nicely for every team.
1. Orlando - Dwight Howard (the only no brainer)
2. Charlotte - Luol Deng
With all the injuries to Emeka Okafor, Deng would of been a nice choice here. Prior to the 2004-05 season, Wallace was a King's restricted free agent.
3. Chicago - Andre Iguodala
Iggy Pop would of been that big 2 guard that they've been searching for.
4. LA Clippers - Ben Gordon
We all know what happened to Livingston.
5. Dallas - Emeka Okafor
Okafor even with all his injuries would of helped the Mavericks inch closer to the a title with his rebounding and defense.
6. Atlanta - Al Jefferson
7. Chicago - Josh Smith
Instead of Deng and Gordon, Imagine Smith and Iguodala!
8. Toronto - Andris Biedrins
Andris is turning out to be the best center prospect in this draft if you consider Howard and Okafor power forwards.
9. Philadelphia - Kevin Martin
10. Cleveland - Devin Harris
11. Golden State - Anderson Varejao
12. Seattle - Josh Childress
13. Portland - Jameer Nelson
14. Utah - Trevor Ariza
