some of these our kind of messed up like in 1997 San antonio selected Tim Duncan with the #1 so we couldn't have got him same with Shaq and Stevie Franchise and Paul Pierce. So we really didn't miss taking them because they were alresdy taken.

But you have to remember if you got a player early here it throws off where you finish elsewhere... so it's a moot point.

true, but they still would have gotten at least one of those players, which would help them now, prolly.

That also holds true for the players you did trade then, imagine in 1994, you drafted Eddie Jones instead of Donyell Marshall, I am sure you would have won 2 or 3 games more atleast which means you have less lotto balls, and might not have gotten garnett, and in turn which means you might not have gotten Wally later.
