Heh, all in good fun. I mean you did take a shot at my West pick because he 'gifted' the Lakers Pau Gasol. Mind you, that trade isn't as one-sided now as it was then, because Marc Gasol has developed into a fine player. And as we saw from this year's playoffs, the Grizzlies are a team on the rise.

Alright Im up. With my 9th round pick Im going to go with Carmelo Anthony for more offensive scoring off my bench. The theme with my starting lineup was to pick guys who have won championships and were great players. My bench Im willing to take guys who are still playing and have the ability to go down as all time greats. And Melo is one of my favorite players so I have to go with him here.

Career stats so far-24.8ppg(14,681), 6.3rpg(3,747), 3.1apg(1,810), 1.1spg(659), 46% career fg%, 32% career 3point%(463 made), 81% career ft%, 4 time all star, 1 time on the all nba second team and 3 times on the all nba third team.

My Team
PG-Oscar Robertson SG-Kobe Bryant* SF-Rick Berry PF-Dirk Nowitzki* C-Moses Malone
Bench-Isiah Thomas, Dikembe Mutumbo, Paul Pierce*, Carmelo Anthony*
*means still playing

Since it might be a looooong offseason, we can do one with active players only at a later date. Those are fun too, and more challenging.
