2.21 Chicago Bulls selects:

Mo Williams, PG.

I think he has a strong offensive game but can also pass the ball very well. He has a fairly low career TO avg at 2.2 per game and has improved his game every season. He hasn't really played with a very athletic big man yet (sorry Bogut) , but I believe that he will mesh well with Amare and feed him the ball ala Nash. He's also able to take over games and make clutch shots. His FG% has improved every season of his short career as his shot selection is getting better. I also like that he can hit the 3 ball which I like out of my PG.

At 2.22, for the win :-b , the Wiz select Richard Jefferson. In all seriousness, I am in a hurry, and I just wanted to get my pick in on time. I will elaborate more later in the day.

With the 26th pick of the 2nd Round, the New Orleans Hornets select:

Ron Artest

Image

Ron is a small forward with extremely versatile offensive skills (from posting up to shooting the 3) and is widely known as one of the best defensive players in the game. He is strong enough to handle the most rugged of forwards while quick enough to defend star shooting guards and small forwards. He is a pretty solid rebounder as he doesn't mind muscling players in the paint.

He has been known though for temper issues and has been considered borderline crazy. We feel that Ron won't pose a problem with our team for a number of reasons. First, Kobe is one of the few people in the NBA who has the ability to command respect from anyone much like Jordan did as he was able to bring the best out of Rodman. Second, Ron is now a little older and hopefully wiser after having gone through a number of questionable incidents. Third, we feel that a winning ballclub will help keep Ron happy. There isn't much to angry about when things are going your way.

The pairing with Kobe should be outstanding and with a few more pieces should be considered a strong championship contender. We feel the two of them will easily be considered the best wing combination in the NBA. They are two of the most determined individuals, pose incredible offensive skills and are considered among the best defenders in the game today.

With the 28th pick of the 2nd Round, the Nets proudly select:

Image
Vince Carter

2.27 Vince Carter, SG
Born: January 26, 1977
Daytona Beach, FL
Height: 6-6
Weight: 220 lbs. Age: 30
Pos: SG
College: North Carolina
Drafted: 1998, 1st round, 5th pick by Warriors

Wow. Getting Vinsanity and LeBron on the same court....one of the most spectacular players in the NBA...simply unbelievable leaping skills..the best dunker ever...but obviously not only a dunker..very creative scorer...his jumpshot has consistently improved over the years....a lot of finesse...doesn't need to play his best basketball to score 20 points...has good rebounding ability...current stats are similar to career averages of 24 ppg, 5+ rpg, 4-4.5 apg, 1.5 spg, 1.5 3Ppg, 1 bpg....

Now, putting LeBron on the same floor as Vince provides two dynamic, creative and unbelievable scoring threats reducing the ability for defenses to collapse and double-team...The Nets will fill seats and not only entertain, but provide two cornerstones for a championship franchise...

:-) :-D :-b ;-) :-]

With the 29th pick of the 2nd round and 58th overall, the Phoenix Suns select:

2.29 Jason Richardson, SG

26 years old
6'6"

By selecting JRich and pairing him with Chris Paul, the Suns have assembled a formidable backcourt that has speed, offense, and defense. From the SG spot, JRich rebounds at a very respectable 5.4 rpg, dishes out 3.2 apg, and gets 1.2 steals and 0.6 blocks per game.

It may seem that JRich has been in the league forever and is on his downward slope, but he is actually only 26 years old and has a good 6 years of prime playing time before he even starts to slow down at 32 years. The reason is that he entered the league as a sophomore and started 75 out of 80 games his very first season in the league.

JRich becomes a good go-to scorer for the Suns who can play off of the ball and give opponents fits. By doing so, this alleviates some of the pressure off of Paul throughout the game and in the last minute of games.
