Chicago's clearly the big winner here-- returning to the playoffs this season, giving Miami a run for their money in the first round, and now they own the #2 pick in the 2006 NBA Draft?

Let's just hope (for their sake, not for everyone else's) that they don't Darko Milicic their pick away.

I wouldn't say that just yet. Most analysts are saying that this is a weak draft with no real standout franchise-fixing prospects, and I tend to agree with them. There's not even a consensus #1 pick, although Tyrus Thomas is pretty close to it.

My fear? With a shitty #5 pick, my Hawks are going to take Adam Morrison, who will most likely still be around at that point. While Morrison will probably end up being at least as good as Keith Van Horn, the last thing the Hawks need is another 6'9 swingman. Then again, that's all they seem to draft. Sigh. Is it football season yet?

New Jersey with the #22 and #23 picks? How do a couple of Bruins sound? Arron Affalo and Jordan Farmar. That is if they are not taken in the lottery.

Nice to see the two representatives of the 2006: Year of the White Guy Who Can Hoop At the College Level campaign aren't exactly burning up the mock drafts.

StingArmy: The Hawks just do that so the Knicks can draft all the 6'9" power forwards.

As for my team, not a clue what the Hornets should do at 12 and 15. But they were damn close to the playoffs this past year, considering the hot start and season-killing cold streak, so they could just be one player away, thanks to Your God And Mine, Chris Paul.

Have y'all looked the Hawks roster for this season? Harrington, Joshes Smith and Childress, Marvin Williams, and even Joe Johnson could play small forward. The last thing the Hawks need is yet another small forward when the Hawks were overloaded and were lacking a decent point guard; trading away Tony Delk didn't help mattters. I would have suggested center too but good centers are always at a premium league-wide.

It sucks when Billy Knight obviously wants to shoehorn a youth-filled run-and-gun team yet doesn't fit into Coach Woodson's defense-minded philosophy. Whatever happened to balance? -_-

Let's not forget they said "no thanks" to drafting Chris Paul when they had the chance (and took Marvin Williams instead.. brilliant). Any chance they wise up and take Marcus Williams? I don't think he's as good as Chris Paul, but you have to start somewhere. Maybe they have some cap room to make a big signing. Then again, I think that's what Joe Johnson was.

Everyone talks about how hopeless the Knicks are, but at LEAST they have some talent on their roster. The Hawks have disgustingly awful management AND a bunch of nobodys on the roster.

Thank the lord God that the Raps didn't win the pick when Babcock was GM. Lord knows who he would've taken...my guess is Isiah Thomas himself, somehow.*

Now, with Colangelo, I'm confident that the Raps will actually take someone who will contribute and be a star to their team.

* = perhaps that's not fair to Babs, since he did take Charlie V, who ended up being very good....though that was arguably because he whipped himself into shape after everyone trashed Babs for taking him that high. The NBA is funny.

I think it's a little unfair how people blast Isiah about trading the pick for Eddy Curry. Health issues aside, if Curry was in this draft (a 6' 11" foot Centre who can score), he would EASILY go first overall. I mean, in his last year in Chicago, he average 16.5 points and 5 rebounds. Even this year past, he was 2nd in the league in Field Goal percentage. And he's only 23. Isiah's made a LOT of bad moves (Francis, Rose, Larry Brown), but this really isn't one of them. I realize health is an issue, but who you rather have, a healthy Eddy Curry or the potential (possibly) of a LaMarcus Aldrige or Andrea Bargnani?

Curry's health issues are his heart (the literal, not figurative). That's more serious than pulling a groing or hamstring on a consistent basis. Plus I'd like my starting center to average more than 5 boards a game.

Another issue on that trade, Chicago also has the right to swap first rounders with NY next year if the Knicks pick is higher than the Bulls. If NY gets the #1 pick again next year, then the trade will look even worse than it alreay does. Especially if Greg Oden enters the draft then.

I'm not trying to downplay his health issues, but he seemed fine this year. Anything can happen to anyone. John Olerud had a brain aneyrism and played baseball for a long time.

He averaged 5 rebounds, but he's only 23. Remember, we're not comparing him to O'Neal or Yao Ming. I'm just saying that if he was coming out in this particular draft, he'd be the No. 1 pick easily (maybe No. 2).

And no one could predict the Knicks would be this bad. They aren't a playoff team or anything, but they shouldn't be worse that the Raptors or Warriors. So when they made that trade, the last thing Isiah thought about was losing out on Oden.

But what about the poor cap management and getting guys with very similar skill sets (Francis, Marbury, Rose, Crawford) and crippling the future of the team. The Curry move is just one in a series of bad ones.

Marcus Williams has a great college pedigree and appears to be the pure point guard the Hawks desperately need.

Roy can make the backcourt more explosive while Joe Johnson plays the role of Jason Kidd.

Either one could help the Hawks tremendously; too bad GM Knight will likely take some unknown or unproven prospect.
