I thought about Wilkins in like round 8, but I felt I already had enough explosive scorers, but I am also surprised he lasted until round 10.

The last two picks you made were really good. I considered both Mourning and Wilkins in earlier rounds, your team looks real good too. Im excited for my last pick, I already have my mind set on who Im picking.

Love the Alonzo pick, there were better scoring centers but I don't think anyone was more feared as an interior defender.

Thanks, I realized looking at the roster( actually I came to that conclusion a few rounds ago) that I don't have many dead-eye shooters, a Chris Mullin-Reggie Miller type( though I suppose West would qualify). My perimeter guys are scorers/ playmakers, though with 3-4 bigmen who command a double team I have confidence in their ability to knock down shots when left open.

Thanks, there was one other guy I considered in Zo's place but I surmised that Mourning supplied the same interior presence but with much better scoring( Alonzo wasn't exactly a smooth scorer, but he was still good for 20 a game in his heyday). I won't mention who else I had pegged, but I'll be sure to point out if he's one of the remaining picks.

A mixture of offense and defense was my goal, I wanted to ensure that the majority of my picks were competent to great defenders, as well as being potent scorers. Dominique doesn't fit that description, but I couldn't give up the chance to draft a guy that scored 26,000 points in his career. I wanted an instant offense perimeter guy, and I did think to go in a few other directions, again I'll point out if he gets picked later on.

Beyond that, I think I've covered the majority of bases: Scoring bigs, defensive standouts in Duncan, Pippen, Payton, Mourning, Ewing, size, athletes who can get out on the break with all-time finishers like Lebron, Pippen, Drexler, Wilkins, and each unit, regardless of who I have on the floor, should be capable on both sides of the ball. I'd have liked to have perhaps another pure point guard and shooter, but overall I'm fairly happy with my team.

George Gervin - The Ice Man

12x All Star (inc ABA)
28.1 PPG NBA Career Avg

The dude was smooth as syrup, and a touch on the mean side. 4 times he led the NBA in scoring, and a decent rebounder for a thin man.


Olajuwan
Chamberlain

Amare Stoudemire
Kevin McHale
George Gervin
Adrian Dantley

Jason Kidd
Chris Paul
Dwyane Wade

Have to open this week early, and my pay depends on taking care of collision customers. Believe me, I'd rather build all time great teams for a living.
