Duncan is even stupider. Kidd and KG probably ranks about the same in stupidity. Stackhouse and Wallace are too much.

Joe F:

Antonio McDyess a low range superstar was basically traded for a #7 pick (Hilario) and you're telling me Wallace and Stack is too much for Lebron, who is not only a potential superstar but possibly also the best player born after 1979 (Odom,McGrady, Brand, etc. are born in 1979) which makes James quite valuable.....lets say for a minute that the Clippers have 2 mid-lotto 1st picks next year, do you think Marko Jaric,Chris Wilcox, Keyon Dooling and both of the 1st picks for James is fair for both sides?

why would you give up an already superstar for a maybe superstar? i personally think james will be the next kobe but i know i wouldnt trade a superstar for him. it would be just flat out dumb. if you already have an all star why trade for a maybe all star. it is too big of a risk. what if lebron gets a career ending injury before he becomes great? then you would have traded a all star for nobody. it is just too big of a risk

And what if your current superstar sustains a career-ending injury??? Just think, you could have had Lebron James! :)

It's a game of risks...

Yes, Wallace, Stack, and Rodney White is definately way too much for one player that hasn't even played a NBA game.

Wallace: DPOY, probably all-star this year

Stack: Former all-star...could happen again

Rodney White: Could be a future all-star

All for one player that hasn't played one game in college, let alone the NBA....yeah, I think that's a little much.

Ya but lebron is a rookie, ill use kevin garnett for an example. garnett is more unlikely to get an injury because he is a veteran and is smarter about the game. but lebron, has all ready got knocked down and broke his wrist. and it wasnt even in an nba game. the nba is rough and lebron has to learn to handle it and not get injured

well things have changed a great deal in terms of the value of high school players...
early example
Kobe for Vlade... y did the hornets even want vlade?
KG and T-Mac were low lotterys
DMiles turned into a quick project with great outlook
THEN we saw Brand for Chandler at the second pick.... and K Brown at 1.... people learned from those mistakes
and this draft, the first high schooler was taken at 9 back to the old standards.

i would agree with most people here that Lebron James shouldn't be clost to as much as KG, Duncan, Kidd, probably just Stack and a pick
just my thoughts

I would not trade KG or tim duncun for a player that is not proven cause KG and tim are in the top 10 and both are proven in my mind. I would trade jalen rose and rashard lewis(if the bulls sign him) and a 1st round pick. Anorther trade i would do is stack and 1st rounder and 2nd rounder.

imo he will ne great but not better than Tim Dunun or KG or even Jkidd.

This was just a deap draft. Amare is as good as the high schoolers taken last year but there were better players available ahead of him than there was last year.

Next year Lebron James will be taken number 1 and Kendrick Perkins will be taken high in the lottery.

First of all about Lebron's wrist, if you saw the game he was taken by his mid-section and inverted and he used his wrist to break his fall from like 8'... he could probably file a criminal complaint against that Wallace kid who hit him.
And about high schoolers not being ready for the league, Lebron is hardly like any of the other high schoolers that have been drafted. T-Mac was too skinny so was Kobe, but at 6-7 225 and maybe even 6-8 now his size and strength is already level with most NBA SGs. Lebron also passes better than even Kobe right now, Lebron is simply so far advanced ahead of time. His one weakness is his unselfishness, it's what killed KG in the playoffs, when you look to always create for teamates first you run into problems.

Hype. You can't help be drawn into it, can you? Now you've got me looking forward to seeing this kid in action. Gotta track down some tapes

Get ready to watch him get scorched defensively. As advanced as he MAY be....he'll get eaten up by 2's, 3's and even some 1's in the much quicker NBA.......on the defensive end.

Plus, playing against NBA 7 footers is a bit different than playing against HS kids.

The competition level is bigger stronger and faster now.

Hmm....I think I'll repeat that.

They were playing against less talent then. Who was there after MJ?????
