Gotta draft Rivers, maybe with him on our team, we will finally beat Boston Celtics in Boston!

I agree.

I also think Barnes could be a similar player to Carmelo Anthony but with defence and a more consistent outside shot.

I like Perry Jones and Miller as well. Kidd-Gilchrist could be an outstanding player if developed properly. He's already an outstanding defensive player, his offensive game is coming around (very good handle and decision-maker), and he has a high basketball IQ. I think he could develop into a Luol Deng-type of player and maybe even Tracey McGrady.

Harrison Barnes and perhaps Drummond or Davis or Jones
Just get Barnes and Marshall that's all I'm asking

Wade is the only game changer from the 2003 draft.
I guess you can count LBJ in it, if you count choking.

Like example: Shaq was a lock for the number 1 pick & so was Lebron. It just doesn't happen often is all I'm sayin...


Even when Rose was drafted there were rumblings that Beasley might go number one.

I think that Griffin was a lock for the #1 spot in his year. With his body and athleticism you pretty much knew that he was going to be a gamechanger too.

You're right though in that those players are pretty rare.

I can't give you decent draft advice, because I'm a long time Blazer fan.

You guys don't think "the eyebrow" would be a great pick?

LOL! There can only be one una-brow on this team. I hope the rookie initiation is 2 pieces of masking tape and a razor. I know, pretty mean.
