How about a an 'Non US' i.e international draft?

Boy, it's been crazy today...

Needing to shore up what I consider to be the weakest squad, I'll go for a scoring big that can run with J Kidd:

Amare Stoudemire

Exciting scorer who can also pull a few boards and block a couple of shots.

PG: Kidd
SG: Ray Allen
SF: Adrian Dantley
PF: McHale
C: Wilt

CP3
D Wade
Amare
Akeem


That second team is coming along nicely.

For my second to last pick, I want to shore up my frontline with a defensive-oriented center/power forward who can also score. This guy at one time was one of the best, unfortunately his career as a dominant force was derailed by injuries, but through the late 90's, with David Robinson, Ewing, Hakeem in the twilight of their careers, he was perhaps the 2nd best center behind a coming-into-his-prime Shaq.

Annnnnnnd for my final pick in this draft, I want instant offense perimeter punch. Amazingly this all-time great scorer seems to have been forgotten, and perhaps its because his game was considered one-dimensional? On this team, all I need from him once he's in the game, is to score in bunches, and posterize some poor ******* who clearly didn't get the memo: when he jumps, don't try to join him in the air. 9/10 times, you'll be on the wrong end of that exchange.

I select:
