Draft by year with star or very good players in top 10 picks

25 posts in this topic

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.

That's a lot of typing on a touchpad to do it that way. Just trying to show a few points.

1. Big time free agents will not sign here so its the draft or bust for a franchise player.

2. If you get the #1 pick there's about a 63% chance you get an impact player. After that its luck.

3. Other than the #1 pick, not to many stars out of 10 players taken each year.

4. 80 players drafted in the top 10 spots, 22 players broke out and are very good to excellent. 28% chance for a star player.

5. The #1 pick spot. 5/8 with 3 players disappointing.

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.

To be honest, thats not a very good lineup, especially considering Brandon Roy's lack of knees. Jrue Holiday isnt very good, Brook Lopez is a seriously flawed player, and while Noah would be nice he is better as a complementary player anyway. Plus we didnt really have a draft pick that year (traded for Jason Richardson)

The major draft miss was clearly 2006 when we had the #3 (and maybe 2005 if that reported trade was on the table), all the rest arent a big deal to me. Its time to move on

I would add that while clearly worse than the #1, top 5 picks did better than 6-10

Yes its the past . I'm not living in the past. This is a topic so I'm just giving my own thoughts. Thinking if we had hit the previous draft picks, how good we could be.

But funny how you say that would not have been a good lineup. Funny how people like you always have something to say like you know everything. Even a lineup made out of no where that could be an all star lineup and you still call it no good. So what up want? You want what we had last year or this year? Good luck then.

So because I think a team led by Jrue Holiday, Brook Lopez, and Joakim Noah would be terrible, somehow I would rather have the worst team in NBA history?

Get the sand out of your vagina

I'm just tired of people saying "Oh the bobcats would be better if they drafted the best player possible every single year"

Yeah no sh!t sherlock

Because Jrue Holiday is the 4th or 5th best player on a mediocre Eastern playoff team, Lopez is the worst rebounding 7 footer in NBA history, and Noah cant score more than 12 points a game

Your point is worthless.

Yeah, but what if they had drafted Joakim Noah with their 5th pick in 07 instead of Jeff Green? Then they could blah blah blah
