Coltraning - Head Coach: Greg Popovic
Roster: MJ, Lebron, Walton, Nash, Dirk, Kidd, Carter, Cowens, Amare, Dantley, Ray Allen, Joe Fulks
Best offensive team without any kind of doubt. #32 brings a valid point with MJ being more used to a half-court setting, but I don't think that would be a problem.
Several issues I have with this team:
Defense.- Not much defense. MJ, Kidd, Cowens... and that's all. Terrible defensive team. Probably wouldn't matter much, tho, as it's a team built to outscore rivals.
Center.- I still think Walton is a big time reach at the point he was drafted (although he fits the team's style perfectly). Never been in love with Cowens. Should have gotten someone to help there with the last pick, instead of getting Fulks.
Coaching.- Pop is a terrible pick to coach that team. Just terrible.
John Patrick - Head Coach: Larry Brown
Roster: Wilt, Barkley, Iceman, Cousy, dominique wilkins, Wes Unseld, payton, Bernard King, Hal Greer, Richmond, Mullin, Bosh
Another weird pick to coach this team. Larry would probably play the same 5 guys 40 minutes per game... I can't see him working well with, say, Bernard King or Bosh.
What else does this team have?. Lots of firepower, which makes it a dangerous team. But I agree with Pest. It's too small. And defense is not exactly stifling. I think Larry would rather coach his Pistons than this team.
Looks like a team that can beat anybody if they're hot. And will lose the rest of the games.
Reggielewis - Head Coach: Lenny Wilkens
Roster: Kareem, Barry, Elvin Hayes, Iverson, Reggie Miller, Parish, English, THompson, Bing, Lanier, Marques Johnson, Tony Parker
Some great picks (Kareem, AI, Hayes, Barry... even Thompson, who I personally like). I also like the coach. I think Lenny fits this team pretty well.
What's not to like?. Some reaches drafting (Parker, Marques Johnson... even Reggie Miller and Parish. I think both would have been available later). Also, could AI adapt to being the PG and not the first scoring option?.
Another dangerous team... but not the best one.
Pestilence - Head Coach: Red Holtzman
Roster: Magic, Mailman, Moses, Kobe, Rodman, Alonzo Mourning, Jerry Lucas, Nate Archibald, Ron Artest, Bob McAdoo, Alvin Robertson, Dennis Johnson
Pretty serious talent here. Magic, Mo Malone (a steal in the third round), Kobe (a steal in the fourth. You picked these two a round after the one they belong to). Great role players (Alvin Robertson, Rodman, Mourning...) and a great pick as a coach for that roster.
What's not to like here?. Chemistry issues. Artest, Rodman, Kobe, the Mailman (who I think it's overrated and should have been no higher than a third round pick, but you got steals on other rounds, so it was good drafting anyway)... It may all blow up. Actually, that's probably what would happen with this roster. Looks great in fantasy basketball, but I doubt it would work in real life.
If we don't count chemistry, this team would be one of the top teams (if not the top). No doubt about it.
Xbayareawarriorx - Head Coach: Pat Riley
Roster: Bill Russell, Dr. J, Isiah, Pippen, Mikan, Wade, Reed, Artis Gilmore, sam jones, chris webber, Chris Paul, Dave Debuschere
Riley was a great pick to coach the team. What else looks good?. Russell, Pippen, Wade, Gilmore, Willis Reed.
What's not to like?. Almost any other pick. Dr. J should have been a 3rd or maybe even 4th round pick, Thomas is a cancer that can destroy any team if he's not the star (that would certainly happen here)... and the final picks are weak.
Migya - Head Coach: Phil Jackson
Roster: Larry Bird, Hakeem, KG, Pete Maravich, TMac, Ewing, Tim Hardaway, Grant Hill, Elton Brand, Kevin Johnson, Paul Pierce, Walt Bellamy
I like this team a lot. You were lucky both Thunder and me botched the Olajuwon pick. I also like the PGs, Hardaway and KJ, who not only were good players. They're also a perfect fit for this team. Also, Bird and Hakeem are enough to be a contender. Jackson is a great coach. Probably not the best fit for that roster (or the roster for him), but he'd be able to make it work.
What I don't like are certain picks that came a bit high (Maravich, Grant Hill...). I also have my doubts about the role T-Mac would play in that team. Average defense, as pest said.
Also, you drafted lots of underachievers:
KG.- 8 times in the playoffs, just one series won.
Brand.- Just one season in the playoffs.
Hill.- 4 times in the playoffs, no series won.
T-Mac.- 5 times in the playoffs, no series won.
Still, a great team.
THUNDER: Head Coach: Chuck Daly
Roster: Shaq, Logo, Havlicek, Stockton, Pettit, Drexler, McHale, Yao, Sidney Moncrief, Marion, Ben Wallace, Dumars
Great coach, great center, some great picks for their respective rounds (Drexler, Moncrief, Stockton, Dumars...)
On the other side, West wasn't a good pick in the second round and Havlicek would have been available later. The first rounds are key in making a winner.
Lacks a true star outside, a Kobe or Lebron to feed off Shaq... Could have had better drafting with the first few picks.
Ok, that's all. Just my two cents about the draft
. My honest, unbiased (as much as I could) and (most probably) wrong opinion about each and every team.
