I thought everyone should have to fill their starting five first before picking another player of the same position ie Fill PG, SG, SF, PF and C first so not picking Magic and Stockton in the first five picks as both are PGs.

What do you guys think?

Nah, because that even further limits the potential to get a steal in the draft. Keep it how it is.

yeah, just like the real world, folks should draft whoever they want. I mean if Karl Malone and Kevin Garnett are available back to back I'd pick 'em...

I take Bill Russell and all of his 11 rings.

At 6'9/6'10 do I get to qualify him as a PF/C since in reality he can play either effecitvely?

Updated. Pest, you're on the clock now.

EDIT: I'm taking Hakeem Olajuwon. Everybody knows how much I like drafting players who can play multiple positions and good defense.

Eman is on the clock for back to back picks.

Nice one. I was hoping he'd fall to the second round, like last year (if I remember correctly), but I guess I was expecting too much.

EMAN is on the clock for consecutive picks.

I too was hoping Hakeem would come back around. I regretted not taking him last year in the back to back picks at the end of the first.

Elgin Baylor.

Another tweener but he has so many skills it is stupid. He's what LeBron could be.

If Lebron played in Baylor's era he'd probably average about 40-12-12

I doubt his assists would be that high, just because he would never need to pass, much like Baylor. Baylor did rock a 38-18-4 though, which I suppose is comprable. I say in about a decade those two players are going to be matched as evenly as any other two players in NBA history.
