Bringing Back The Draft:2005

Justin June 23, 2008 1

The Playoffs are over, but that just means the NBA off-season has begun. The Draft is only 3 days away. In preparation for that magical evening, and the mistakes that are bound to be made, it’s time to review drafts of the past. We’ll do one a day until Michael Beasley or Derrick Rose put on a Bulls hat, and share an awkward handshake with David Stern.

Today: 2005

Top 5:

1. Andrew Bogut (MIL)
2. Marvin Williams (ATL)
3. Deron WIlliams (UTA)
4. Chris Paul (NOH)
5. Raymond Felton (CHA)

Hindsight is 20/20 Top 5: floor leaders abound.

1. Chris Paul
2. Deron Williams
3. Monta Ellis
4. Danny Granger
5. Andrew Bynum

Say hello to the two best point guards of the next decade. Monta Ellis is electric. Granger is the only good news on a weak Indiana team. Watch Bynum’s feet. He has skills that can’t be taught. Just wait.

1st rounder who should have gone in the 2nd round: Fran Vasquez was a monumental screw up by Orlando. They grabbed him with the 11th pick, and THEN found out he didn’t want to come to the US.

2nd rounder who should have gone in the 1st round: Monta Ellis. No explanation needed.

    Now that the playoffs are over I can’t wait for the draft to be over, so I wont have to hear about the NBA for a few months.
