Miller owning the Knicks and Spike Lee.

It's a shame that Reggie's last run at a ring was sabotaged by Ron Artest and the Malice at the Palace.

With my second pick: Pistol Pete Maravich

Pete Maravich

Hall of Famer "Pistol Pete" Maravich was a spectacular showman who helped open up the game of basketball in the 1970s. After a legendary college career at Louisiana State, he played 10 productive seasons in the NBA, earning five trips to the NBA All-Star Game and one league scoring title. Maravich wasn't the first player to dribble behind his back or make a deft between-the-legs pass. But his playground moves, circus shots, and hotdog passes were considered outrageous during his era and, perhaps because he cultivated a freewheeling image, some basketball purists felt he was more style than substance.

Reggie was at the top of the my list of four players I wanted to take. The other three are still on the board at this point, fingers crossed. (I know I just jinxed myself and the next three picks will be the three I want, lol)

Is the Kidd pick a reach? I was stuck scrambling for a playmaking point guard to feed Jordan, and AI didn't feel like a good idea. Plus, defensively, my team is looking solid.

I dont think so. Heck, Nash went in the first round. I dont think that you can definitively say that Nash is a better player historically than Kidd. Kidd has been the modern king of the triple double, and can do it by racking up defensive stats like rebounding and steals. I didnt realize that his career statistics were so slight though. Personally, I would have taken him before Nash and after Cousy. I would have picked them 1. Oscar Robinson, 2. Magic, 3. Stockton, 4. Jerry West, 5. Cousy, 6. Isaiah Thomas, 7. Kidd, 8. Walt Frazier, 9. Nash?

Kidd has led teams to the championship round, and is always a playoff contender. He's the king of the trip-dub. He's also a winner (at least after he left Dallas ).

His Playoff stats are much better than his regular season ones, plus, if his stats were one form his Nets days, they'd look better.

I was going to take Nash, in all honesty.

That wouldnt work.

Jordan was a high useage player, just like Nash. Those guys are required to have the ball in their hands quite a bit to get the most out of their ability. With Nash, you want versatile offensive players who can scrap for baskets. With Jordan, you want complimentary players.

With the 2nd pick of the 3rd round GSRelyea selects: Nate Archibald

Nate Archibald

On his way to the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame, Nathaniel "Tiny" Archibald learned all about rising from desperate surroundings to extraordinary heights. It was an education that started early in life and served him well through a 14-year playing career that led him from the lowly Cincinnati Royals to an NBA Championship with the Boston Celtics. Before retiring at the end of the 1983-84 season, Archibald became the only player ever to lead the league in both scoring and assists in a season (34.0 ppg, 11.4 apg in 1972-73). At the time of his retirement, he also had 6,476 regular-season assists, which ranked ninth among the career leaders.

Phew, I was sweating this one.....With the 3rd pick in the 3rd round Master Pain Selects........


The Human Highlight Film
Dominique Wilkins


Perhaps best known for his gravity defying dunks, Nique was are prolific scorer on an underrated Hawks team that was often over shadowed by the Celtics, Pistons and Bulls in the Eastern Conference during the 80 and early nineties.

(I could be running a small ball team! I have my smalls figured out now I need some bigs!!!!!)

To whoever asked, no Kidd wasn't a reach. I was targeting him as well. How many times has he had triple doubles? A lot. Granted, he may be asked to rebound more than other PG's, but still.

Kidd is really a historically unique player as far as style and production are concerned. I guess that he and magic may be alike. I think that Kidd is the best PG of his era. There was a span of 4-5 seasons where Kidd was the best guard in the league and arguably the top player. Kidd is a mult-facteded player with an extremely high B-ball IQ. I am surprised that he lasted as long as he did.

Time to get FREAKY!

Power forward Kevin McHale.



I've got the two long range snipers, now I want to complement them with an unstoppable force in the low post. I've never seen anybody who was more automatic than McHale down low. The following is quoted from his bio on NBA.com:

"He became the most difficult low-post player to defend -- once he made the catch -- in the history of the league,"
contended former NBA coach Hubie Brown in the Boston Globe. "He was totally unstoppable because of his quickness,
diversification of moves and the long arms that gave him an angle to release the ball over a taller man or more explosive jumper."

He developed a low-post game that featured many moves not previously seen in the NBA or anywhere else. McHale had a grab bag
of drop steps, head fakes, pump fakes, baby jump hooks, shovel shots and fadeaways that confounded even the best defenders.
Anyone who drew McHale as an assignment was in trouble. He had no preferred spot. He could set up on either the right or left box.
He could take the turnaround from either the baseline or the middle and he had extraordinary range. He could catch and shoot immediately
or throw a head fake as the situation demanded. Amazingly, given his gawky legs and disproportionately long arms, he had extraordinary
balance. He had become a force on the inside at either forward or center.

  • Elected to Basketball Hall of Fame (1999)

  • Ranks ninth in NBA history in career field goal percentage (55.4%)

  • NBA champion (1981, '84, '86)

  • Seven time All Star (1984, '86, '87, '88, '89, '90, '91)

  • All-NBA First Team (1987)

  • Sixth Man Award (1984, '85)

  • All-Defensive First Team (1986, '87, '88)

  • All-Defensive Second Team (1983, '89, '90)

  • Named to the NBA's 50th Anniversary All-Time Team (1996)

Considering that Slap's team name is the Flying Lithuanians, he's going to have to draft Linas with his last pick. It's only right.
