you mean slow moving? It really hasn't been, we just had one person hold it up and we gave them 12 hours. Everyone else has been rather prompt.

Agree, he even killed my Suns one year with a three pointer, causing me to spill beer. But even that deadly banker is somewhat available because it is cleared out in the paint and he's got a threat to go either direction with the ball.

Either way, I see your point, and I don't think you can go wrong with Tim Duncan with any center.

And furthermore..... I think we should be able to, once we've made our picks, set our final starting lineups at that point.
Agree again. Like I said my strategy was to take Duncan at PF and if I felt there was a better PF than center available in rnd 3 Duncan would be my center.

Nope slow is fine, just looking over picks, and how surprising some have been. Wow, that's all.

Ralph Sampson? Tell you what, if you pick Ralph Sampson I'll pick Jerry Sichting for old times sake.

Care to elaborate? Or you don't want to say too much? Bear in mind with you picking number one, you had close to an obvious no-brainer. The picks after that get a bit trickier, but I imagine most of us would have selected Jordan. I sure as hell would have....

Prob surprised at the lack of early big men love like you and I were...

Yeah Jordan is an easy 1, I wouldve went that way too.

If we do discuss picks we should try to avoid naming undrafted players (unless its in jest like some of the posts in this thread).

I've never liked the guy, but numbers don't lie. He grew up a frail child, but he got over it.

Spoiler

Wilton Norman Chamberlain

2x NBA Champion
4x NBA MVP
71-72 NBA Finals MVP
8x All NBA 1st Team
13x NBA All Star

30 pts and 23 reb/gm for his career. Led the league in assists in 67-68 - because he could.


The stat king - in a world where we appreciate a 20/10 guy, he was a 50/25 guy. How many people the world over would pay to see a prime Wilt vs a prime Shaq go head-to-head?
