Granted this isn't Blazer-centric... this is a tangent to CJB's Wilt Chamberlain post.
Here's my unoriginal question: If you were the G.M. selecting a team from all past and present NBA players, who would you want to take in the first round?
Here's my logic: Wilt is the greatest basketball player ever based on statistics (obviously)... but he wasn't the best team player. There are plenty of other dominant centers but I'm betting I can still get a perfectly serviceable one in the second or third round like Ewing, Mourning or Walton. I'm drafting my captain in the first round, someone who sets a tone.
Here are the rules:
1. You can choose anyone at any point in their NBA career, but college or European achievements don't apply.
2. First come, first serve. If you want to take a turn, please copy the most recent list and add your pick.
3. Moderators and newbies are all welcome.
I want my team to be fired up at all times. There are a lot of good options but with my #1 draft pick of all time, I'm taking:
- Larry Bird. Clutch.
