Gerald Wallace on being traded

28 posts in this topic

I mean you just named 15 players in the last 10 years. Picks 20 to 30 thats 85 players that are garbage since then. You named people after the 20's so that makes even more garbage players. The draft is a crap shoot. No poo. What im saying is there is a huge drop off from 20 on down. Really big drop off. 20 on down usually don't come in contribute and start right away. 20's are terrible in the NBA. Not to mention we haven't had great luck in the lottery. The 20's are full of roll players which is fine but we are full of roll players now. We need starters. Here's to getting lucky cause we are going to need it.:cheers2:

Well we do have our first round pick so maybe we get a decent pick in the lottery.

I wouldn't say that the 20's aren't good I would just say it depends on the particular draft.

Since the 2000

Draft

These guys have been selected for All Star Games or All-NBA Teams

2000- 19th pick- Jamaal Magloire

2000- 43rd pick- Michael Redd

2001- 19th pick- Zach Randolph

2001- 25th pick- Gerald Wallace

2001- 28th pick- Tony Parker

2001- 30th pick- Gilbert Arenas

2001- 37th pick- Mehmet Okur

2002- 35th pick- Carlos Boozer

2003- 18th pick- David West

2003- 29th pick- Josh Howard

2003- 47 pick- Mo Williams

2004- 20th pick- Jameer Nelson

2005- 17th pick- Danny Granger

2005- 30th pick- David Lee

2006- 21st pick- Rajon Rondo

However, like others have said it's really a hit or miss and a lot of the guys just turn out to be role players.

i don't think it's as much hit and miss as some of you claim. some teams draft well and some dont. i see the celtics, spurs, hornets, bucks, mavericks, trailblazers, magic in this list, teams that have drafted well historically.

i don't see any bobcats.

And we've been so good since he left.

Were they so good before he left? H*ll, were they ever good while he was here? (Not blaming him of course)

Draft picks are going to mean alot under a new CBA, maybe not this year, but the two picks we have for 2013. Both sides said they favor an NFL style CBA, which would make picks that much more important.

    • You miss the point. Taylor was here before. We picked him because of what he could do for our wide receivers not because he had some great knowledge no other person had on the staff. Shula and Rivera and Gettleman studied multiple college systems for months before signing Taylor or drafting McCaffrey or Curtis and would have drafted the same whether Taylor was here or not. They liked the way Taylor developed McCaffrey which showed his talent but Stanford's offense wasn't Taylors idea or unique to him. Shula has a connection to Taylor as early as when Shula was at Alabama.  The debate was whether Taylor was chosen to replace Shula because Shula didn't know what to do to run a college offense and if he screwed up Taylor would replace him. And that Taylor was the reason and most influential in getting McCaffrey. I said it wasn't even close to the truth and this plan predated Taylor and was more thorough and we'll thought out. Everything since then just confirms I was right once again like usual.  
    • Assholes should've never taken it away in the first place.  Me and a couple buddies had a hookup and were all hyped up and planned out going to it... then the NBA had to get all political and take it out on the city of Charlotte and the fans -- which made no fuging sense.  Seriously doubt we'll even get the chance to go again.
    • 6'6" 255.  He'll definitely have some good mentors with JP, CJ and the rest of the D-Line crew. 255 he'll need to put some weight on don't you think?
