I was looking through some websites trying to find some TD topics- and  looking at the draft classes- I was stunned to see just how little talent was DRAFTED by the east-

http://www.fannation.com/blogs/post/50071

Lets look at a West this time- and my time frame is 95/96 (when Van/Memphis came in) to last year.

Now please keep in mind that I used my biased opinion on who is a good player- The way I look at it, If he was traded to my Bobcats- I'd be happy. I might have missed a few boarderline all-stars but I doubt I missed  too much, if so let me know.

Now Just to reiterate, these are players DRAFTED by the team, I know Kobe plays for the Lakers but he was DRAFTED by the Hornets. That is what matters.

 

Dallas - Josh Howard

DEN- Carmelo,

GSW - Arenas ONLY and NO I am not counting Jason Richardson- I don;t want him for what we gave up for him.

Hou- Rudy, Rudy, Rudy, Yao, Richard Jefferson,  A heathy Randy Livingston maybe.

LAC - Lamar Odem, McDyess, Tyson Chandler, Darius Miles

LAL - Not a single swingin player- I know Bynum and Walton have fans. But am I running out to get finals tickets for them? no.

Mem - Shane Battier, Steve Francis, Bibby, Abdur-Rahim

MIN - Roy, Ray Allen, KG

Cha/NO - Kobe, Baron, Paul

Phx- Deng, Amare, Marion, Finley, Nash, Steven Jackson

Por - Jermaine O Neal

SAC - Peja

San A - Tony Parker, Manu, Duncan,

SEA- Rashad Lewis,

UTH - Ostertag, Kirilenko

Now in my East Blog, I mentioned that there are 4 teams in the west that could WAX the east-

How about this team?

C - Yao, Amare

PF Duncan, McDyess Oneal

SF KG, Carmelo,

SG Kobe, Arenas, Ray Allen

PG Parker, Nash

-- I debated between Baron Davis, Marion, Chris Paul, Battier and Ray Allen for that final spot.

 

I think that takes the East of

C - Howard
PF - Bosh
SF - James
SG - Wade
PG - Hinrich

with Gordon, Okafor, Butler, Johnson (Dirk) on the Bench

I Think PHX takes this all Draft Team fairly easy so no TD on this one, but look at Strength of the Hornets and Memphis.

The 4 teams: Phx, San, NO, Min

That gives me Duncan,Amare,KG, Kobe, and Nash

My starters Take yours (TD if you want)
