Yea Im up for that. I don't start college till August and its not even July yet lol, so the only time Im not near the computer is when Im at the gym or sleeping.

I think at this stage it makes sense, as we've nearly done 8 rounds in,what, 2 days? Besides, it adds a greater degree of strategy to fill out your roster after picking the obvious Jordan/Wilt/Kareem/Magic/Bird/Shaq/Hakeem/Kobe etc etc picks.

That may well be the case - I'll discuss that with my HOF coach.

For my 8th pick, I'll go with another PG.

Chris Paul

He's still young, but he's proven himself to be one of the best already. He's led the NBA in steals 4 times already, he's the active assists per game leader currently (9.95 per), and he can score.


Kidd and Paul - I like it.

Okay for my round 8 I'm going with....

Spoiler

Solid defender and playmaker, plus in his prime everyone knew he was going to drive, but couldn't do **** about it.



1999-2000 = 26/7/5

Tragic what happened to Grant Hill with the injuries, he was primed for all-time greatness.

My Team
PG-Oscar Robertson SG-Kobe Bryant SF-Rick Barry PF-Dirk Nowitzki C-Moses Malone
Bench(so far)-Isiah Thomas, Dikembe Mutumbo, Paul Pierce
