I'm building my team around the best PG in the league Kal, not a guy who could be Gumby's stunt double. :-D

I was thinking about Dwight and Paul for #2 also. Out of curiosity, where would you have picked Lebron, kal?
Yes, Warriors sold at last!

Great pick. Went first overall in the first Cafe Reshuffle. ;-D

Oh and I love the pic in the rosters section - you've likely started a trend. B-)

i'd have to take him #3. way too much talent to pass up more then twice. i feel that kd and d-how offer better combination of age/health, talent and character, but after that all other choices lack in one department or the other

I would have taken Howard at #2 personally. I don't have any major problems with Paul LBJ or Bryant, but he would have been my choice ahead of each of them. I do agree with Durant going first though.

I would have taken Howard over Bryant at this point in their careers.

Howard does have major limitations though on the offensive end and in real life teams have shown if you can get him in foul trouble, you can render him almost useless.

Can't argue with Durant at #1. He'd be my first pick to build a franchise around right now.

Did think Dwight slipped, I fully expected him to go top 3 along with Lebron.

Kobe is Kobe, but given his age I don't think I would have picked him quite that high.
