With most of the teams having picked seven players or more, I thought it was a good time to break down one thing I liked and one thing I didn’t like from each team.
LIKE: Gilbert Arenas as a sixth man.
Brooklyn Grave Diggers
LIKE: Michael Jordan and the positional flexiblity.
DISLIKE: All that perimeter talent yet no stable point guard for key moments.
New Jersey Swamp Dragons
LIKE: It’s a fun roster.
DISLIKE: So much selfishness.
LIKE: Terrific defense and enough offense.
DISLIKE: Glen Rice is the only trustworthy shooter so far.
San Francisco Rush
LIKE: The passing.
DISLIKE: The defense is going to be especially bad.
LIKE: The positionless, pass-heavy exciting factor.
DISLIKE: Those top three picks all need the ball.
LIKE: Everyone fits a role perfectly.
DISLIKE: A few conservative picks make this team less talented than others.
LIKE: A lot of proven winners with low-key personalities.
DISLIKE: The talent level isn’t great. Little shooting, little ballhandling.
LIKE: The pure skill level is very high.
DISLIKE: Not so much a dislike, but draft a top-tier perimeter defender soon.
Detroit Wall Aces
LIKE: The top three picks were great.
DISLIKE: Taking Giannis instead of one of the many great point guards available when that’s such a huge need.
Los Angeles Corey Feldmans
LIKE: The defense.
Dislike: Mookie Blaylock over Dennis Johnson, Kevin Johnson, Mark Price, Tim Hardaway, etc.?
Los Angeles Deserters
LIKE: The Kevin Garnett-Bill Walton combo.
DISLIKE: The Derrick Rose-Pete Maravich combo.
St. Louis Explorers
LIKE: The toughness.
DISLIKE: That’s a lot of forwards.
LIKE: Dr. J and Moses! Chris Mullin slipping to the sixth round was silly.
DISLIKE: Dwight Howard doesn’t fit at all with plenty of better fits and better players still available.
Boston Victory Cigars
LIKE: Just about everything.
DISLIKE: How the hell did Boston get the best roster even in this thing?!
San Antonio Chapparals
LIKE: The winning pedigrees and hard workers.
DISLIKE: Joe Dumars, Eddie Jones and Shane Battier all feel like reaches.
LIKE: David Robinson.
DISLIKE: Most of the other picks.
LIKE: The positional flexibility.
DISLIKE: A lot of scorers and noted selfish players/jerks.
LIKE: The starting lineup should work well together.
DISLIKE: Steve Francis. I mean, really?
LIKE: The playing styles mesh.
DISLIKE: This is a very short team and Michael Cooper as a starter is a stretch.
