NBA Draft Day

Tonight’s NBA Draft is being called one of the weakest drafts in years. There will be no players like Lebron James or Michael Jordan drafted tonight. No one who will be able to step in and transform a losing franchise into a playoff team.

Since this draft will be a bit lackluster, I looked at a different kind of draft with much more star power. Ten writers from the Sports Illustrated website did a mock draft with all the greatest players in NBA history. The first round picks were : Michael Jordan,Wilt Chamberlain, Bill Russell, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Oscar Robertson, Shaquille O’Neal, Larry Bird, Magic Johnson, Kobe Bryant and Tim Duncan.

What do you think of this draft? Anyone who went higher than you thought? I thought centers went too high. Who do you think should have been in the first round but wasn’t (my pick: Jerry West)? Who would you draft if you could make an all-time NBA team?  My top five would be Bill Russell, Oscar Robertson, Michael Jordan, Larry Bird and Jerry West.

Enjoy watching the NBA Draft, and who knows, maybe the next great superstar will begin his career tonight.
