I like Lopez's potential and was looking at him for one of my next two picks, so he likely would not have been available at 10.04. The question on Lopez is being injury free with his back.
Yes, Warriors sold at last!

Gotta admit, I was very tempted to take him this round and was going to have a hard time passing on him if he made it back to me. I think Arenas will very likely outperform his draft position by quite a bit this season.

I was torn between Arenas and Jrue Holiday until you made the choice for me.

I actually opened up this thread to comment on your team. I think it is about as good as could be through 6 rounds (worth putting into the rosters thread :*) ).

Howard
Kidd
Gasol
Camby
Felton
A.K.

I noticed Murphy went one pick before you grabbed Gasol and I think he would've been better fit for your team, seeing that you grabbed Kidd in the second. All in all, though, I think you've got a great core.

My draft through 6:

Howard
Rondo (matches up with Howard equally with Kidd, IMO...just has more upside...or should I say, "less downside.")
Nene (probably an upgrade to Gasol, seeing that he's played in 77 and 82 games the past 2 seasons.)
Felton (Very important piece to my team so I reached)
Bynum (Huge downgrade from Camby when punting PTS and FT%)
A.K.

Cheers to Howard, Felton and A.K. having healthy and productive seasons. ;-D

Yea, Lopez wont last you till the 10th round in a league with saavy managers. I did get him 10th round in both Yahoo public leagues im in, but those kids arent that aware about certain guys like Lopez...hes a sleeper pick.

Wasn't a fan of the Lopez pick to be honest, especially with Tyrus still out there on the board. Good pick George -- I've looked at him the past 2 rounds, this round more seriously, but just wasn't the greatest fit.

The Tyrus pick stood out when looking at who went around him...great value.
