Nope. Try this

1. Grizz: Pau Gasol, Shane Battier, Drew Gooden, Robert Archibald, Matt Barnes (traded to Cleveland)

2.New Jersey:Richarson Jefferson, Jason Collins, Brandon Armstrong, Brian Scalabrine, Nened Kristic

3. Bulls: Tyson Chandler, Eddy Curry, Jay Williams, Roger Mason, Lonney Baxter, Trenton Hassell

don't confuse quantity with quality (Warriors drafts).

Nets did not have that great of draft....
Warriors have 2 future all stars Dunleavy and Richardson and 2 quality starter Welsch and Arenas. Murphy and Logan also will be 2 guys that will play solid minutes and be good off the bench or even starting for years.

So Warrior fans are going to start Arenas, Welsch, Richardson, Dunleavy and Murphy. And I didn't think you guys could get any worse. I have serious disagreements about Dunleavy becoming an all-star and I don't think Richardson will ever be an elite 2-guard (I don't think he can develop the long range and mid-range shot). The Warriors better have had a great last two years in the draft because they gave away a future first (likely to be lottery) for Welsch.

You guys have to remember which teams have a lot to work with and which don't. I think San Antonio should rank high in the list. They got an immediate starter and upgrade in Tony Parker who also has great potential and they traded away John Salmons for a future pick.

Pretty sure

Pretty sure the trade was Sixers 2005 1st rd. pick back and GS 2003 1st rd. pick(but the pick is top 26 protected, so unless GS is a top 3 team, Sixers get the Warriors 2003 2nd rd. pick) for Jiri Welsch.

But I could be wrong..........

It doesn't say from the last 2 drafts.

It says from consecutive drafts. Odom went in 99, and Miles and Co. in 2000.

He oviously meant the last 2 years... Anyways, the answer is the Bulls. Why? They got 2 talented big men in one draft, which is almost impossible. Plus they got the best player in college basketball over the last 2 years. Not to mention Hassell and Co.....

How do you figure? He said best draft over a 2 year period. That refers to any 2 year period. Not just the past 2 drafts.

He may have meant the past 2 years, but he said something different. He said over a 2 year period and didn't limit the choices.

He then proceeded to list players from the last 2 drafts ONLY. Take his post in context.

And? He could've easily just thought that those were the best. People seem to always remember whats most present, and he could've easily forgotten about others.

He did not say the past 2 drafts. Like I said, that may be what he meant, but that is not what he said.

And since he said any draft over a 2 year period, I stick with the Clips, by far.

If it is just the last 2, it is the Bulls no doubt.

well if it's any team's back to back drafts it's the Magic with Penny (Weber traded for him draft day) and then the next year Shaq/
and the Clippers come in second with Lamar Odom, Darius Miles, Keyon Dooling, Quenitin Richardson, Marko Jaric, and Rico Hill (the CBA's leading scorer whom the Clippers still own the rights to), not to mention aquiring Corey Maggette draft day '00. and after that it's hard to tell but I'd say Toronto with T-Mac then Vince.

Good point about Shaq and Penny. As I said, people seem to remember the things that were more present, and forget the things a bit older. And I totally forgot about that one. Shaq is the most dominant player in the game, and the following year they got another superstar(when he was healthy) the year after.

good responses,i actually meant the last 2.i like what the warriors are doing.they even did well getting rid of hughes,next is fortson.they have 3 problems though.they need a top coach and i dont have a clue who that should be.2nd they dont really have a top pg,which in the west you need to deal with guys like bibby,payton,nash and the like and 3rd they dont have a decent post player.i would be for them packaging some assets like a murphy and a jamison and making a run for andre miller.

What are you talking about? The Warriors had alot of quality in their draft, and definitly more so than NJ.

Richardson and Dunvleavy are worth more than all of the players NJ has drafted in the last two years.

And what about Stockton and Malone?. I think it is not bad at all.

And for the last two years, I wouldn't forget Houston: Griffin, Ming, Nachbar, Maddox.

Question...

Didn't Philly pick Stackhouse and Iverson in consecutive drafts?

And going farther back...

Didn't the Rockets get Craig Ehlo and Ralph Sampson one year, then Hakeem Olajuwon the next?
