who would they draft?
Package it with Odom and make a hard run at Kevin Garnett.Pinball said:It sounds like you don't really like Bogut. What would you do with the #1 pick?
I doubt it. I absolutely hate Kupchak and I was all over his jock when he obtained Mihm and Marcus Banks.TheATLien said:I bet everybody here would bash Mitch no matter who he picks.

Then when Danny Ainge went Ashton Kutcher and Punk'd Kupchak, I quickly jumped back on the "I hate Mitch" bandwagon.
You're only as good as your last move so if Mitch makes some smart moves this off-season he'll be cool with me.
You know what? I like your first thought. Nothing would make this team better in the immediate future than another superstar to play alongside Kobe. I'd love to try and package a #1 pick and Odom to the Wolves for a player like KG. Who knows if Minnesota will bite but it's worth a try. A KG-Kobe duo would probably bring Phil back into the fold for good as well.Jamel Irief said:Package it with Odom and make a hard run at Kevin Garnett.
Or package it with expiring contracts (Vlade, Atkins, George) for Elton Brand.
I don't think M.Williams should be on the radar unless something is done with the glut of forwards before the draft. And I'm skeptical on how D.Williams or Paul would do with Phil coaching. Basically I'm not sold enough on any rookie to not utilize the trade power of the #1.

I'd like to see both teams
I've only seen him play about 3-4 times but I generally liked what I saw from him. I think he's going to develop into a poor man's Tim Duncan. He probably won't be the dominant defender that Duncan is but I can see him developing into a similar rebounder and low post scorer. Some people have compared him to McHale or Divac but I see a combination of all 3 players when I watch him play. Even if he is only as good as Vlade, that's still an All Star caliber big man.Jamel Irief said:Atkins
As for Bogut, I want to make it clear that I think he'll be a good player. Unlike 90% of the posters here that have barely seen him play I'll openly admit I've only seen him play 6-10 times. I feel he'll make anywhere from 1-5 all-star teams and see him as a Brad Miller with a better work ethic.
