The projections are very interesting from "let Lebron write his legacy before you create it" comments from Tom Tolbert resonate today still.

Jay Bilas saying Darko Milicic would be the number 1 pick in the last 10 drafts if not for Lebron James made me lol as it did on draft day with Detroit taking him over Carmelo Anthony.

Went by Grainy footage of Milicic making hook shots over his neighbor in the driveway was his basic scouting film.

It just shows how far you can miss not taking the most ready to play guy in the draft.

Noel is not ready and like Jason Williams said on a segment..he will have to grow and develop his body over the next 4 or 5 years before he is NBA ready to defend on the block.

Lebron was deflecting Rookie of the Year honors in his post draft interview bc he said individual honors of of no concern to him as he is wants to improve his teamates and team performance.

For Lebron haters: he took that Cavs team with mighty Jamario Moon and Broken down Zudrunas Illgaskas to the finals. He deserves some other new award for that..like broad azz shoudlers of a player we need to appreciate while he is on the earth award.

Painful interview for Milicic as his english is basically me strong..I will break you. Drafting potential will break your franchise.

Carmelo looking mad at everyone but what a steal at 3.

Ok just realized I am doing live play by play from the past but it is an interesting draft none the less.

Read something the other day that the Nuggets were desperately trying to trade with Detroit to get Darko.  Bullet dodged there.

Don't worry, we would've drafted Darko.

Expansion teams can't have the 1st draft pick... but you're right, we probably would have traded Gerald Wallace if possible just to move up and draft Darko.
