we need a team list in one place, its a pain going back and forth double checking picks lol. thought orangish was gonna add it to the OP.
Yeah I should do that. Now that we are in the second to last round though, is there any point? I figured we would have a new thread once its over, list the teams in the OP and have everyone vote on the best team.

Im up, pick will be posted in a 5 min

Ok, Im going fairly old school here for my 9th round pick.

Spoiler

Elvin Hayes. Here is a description I borrowed from another sites bio on him.

Quote:
Hayes is one of the most underrated players in the history of the league. He ranks in the top 10 in career points, field goals made, rebounds, and minutes played. He has career averages of 21 points, 12.5 rebounds, 1.8 assists, one steal, and two blocks per game. He was also selected to 12 All Star teams in his 16-year career.
He was also one of the most durable players of all time, as he only missed nine games in his career and played 80 or more games in every season. He was also selected to the All-NBA team six times, with three of the selections as a member of the first team. Finally, he also led the Bullets to a championship in the 1977-1978 season.

Oh man you can't hold his GM moves against him. Hell, you took Michael Jordan with the first pick, and he drafted Kwame Brown at no.1

I mentioned a few pages back, that the first post should be modified to have all the picks and/or teams there, for easy reference.

I've got a scratch pad with everybody's picks listed - I'm a caveman with a crayon sometimes.

Honestly I think everyone has done a good job here, though I'd like to see all the teams listed so we can really dissect them to their roots.

I put the draft order in the OP, I will do complete teams once I have some time later today. and again, I say a whole new thread will be needed at that point so we can have a poll and let other CD'ers vote on the best team.
