There a reason you stopped at 08?

2008 - Rose #1, Westbrook #4, Kevin Love #5, Brook Lopez #10

2007 - Durant #2, Horford #3, Noah #9

2006 - Aldridge #2, Roy #6, Gay #8

2005 - Bogut #1, Williams #3, Paul #4, Bynum #10

2004 - Howard #1, Harris #5, Deng #7, Iguodala #9

I'd also throw in Brandon Jennings for your 2009 group and Favors, Monroe and George into your 2010 group.

The jury is still out on everyone from 2011 but there are definitely talented guys there.

Averages about 18 points, 8 rebounds, and 2 blocks per game over his career and has a PER around 20. Yes, that's very good.

He averaged less than four boards per game this season though. For a seven footer that's pathetic.....

I'd take Lopez any day.

Even over DJ like Brown did. Lol

So 8 drafts the Cats were in. Not one star or marketable player to show for it.

2005- refused to trade 5 and 13 for CP3

2006- went with Ammo over Roy or Gay

2007- Wright traded for Richardson. Passed on Noah

2008- DJ over Lopez

2010- no draft picks

yup. I swear I was thinking the same thing the other day about this topic also. That only if we had chose the right players, we wouldn't be in this situation.

Here's my thought:

-Ofcourse in 2004, we would stil take Emeka Okafor.

-2005 needing a PG, and not trading up for CP3, we'd still take Raymond Felton

(04'-05' having our big man and a PG)

(But now, this is where MJ should've done his hw and never fug up)

-In 2006, instead of listening to stupid Bob Johnson, he shouldve listen to Barkley and take Brandon Roy (Franchise Player)

-2007, what the Fug with the Brandan Wright pick? Take Joakim Noah!

-2008, why did we pass up on two big men in Lopez and Hibbert? but lets say that we took Brook Lopez just bc he came in as a higher prospect than Hibbert.

-2009, never knew why we passed up on Holiday for Henderson. Many mocks had us taking Holiday and I wanted Holiday. I love Duke too and every Carolina teams, but I'm not a big believer in Henderson. Say what yall want. I dont care. I dont like Henderson as much as many of you guys. Pick shouldve been Jrue Holiday.

(2009, we traded Emeka for Chandler)

(2010, we let Felton walked as a free agent, traded Tyson Chandler, and as the same time had no draft picks)

Now the 2011 lineup would've looked like this:

PG: Jrue Holiday

SG: Brandon Roy (saying he didnt retire)

SF: Klay Thompson or Kawhai Leonard

(We would never made a trade up for Biyombo at 7th and at 9th, we wouldve took Thompson or Leonard bc the trade of Wallace to Portland left a hole a the SF position.)

PF: Joakim Noah (a center but could play PF)

C : Brook Lopez

Yes it made be what some of yall may call "hindsight 20/20". And maybe if we had these guys on the roster, we wouldnt even be picking at the spot we were (lottery picks). But sometimes, we as fans has a better vision in seeing or guessing who will be a star in the making before some of these professional coaches and GMs do. Yah, yall can say its just lucky guessing and dont be stupid, or our jobs is not on the line like these guys when picking a player out of the draft, but we all as fans, and all yall knows it too, that we rather take the BPA. And these BPA that many teams keep passing up on, do become stars in the league.

Love it or hate it, suck it up. Just something I thought.

Would've been much more informative if you listed all of the NOBODIES who were in the Top 10s. There are a lot more of those.

    • 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?
