No, but I know a lot of us lost ours from TinyPic - they discontinued something or other.

Is it just me or does Drexler perennially get under drafted? He is a total steal at that spot.

I was real close to taking him and going Drexler/Mullin/Durant/Howard but all the pgs left are pretty high fga that I could think of so woulda been tricky, lots of low fga PFs

He is a great player but a bit difficult to build around imo. He fits really well on Laimbeer's team since he has great spacing around him Terry Porter and Paul Pierce.

Yeah, he's tricky. Opinions on his defense are iffy and spacing is big around here.

Actually he was one of two players I was hoping might make it back and both did. Chose Clyde.

I like the fit of that four, but I've got Payton about on the same level as Drexler so you didnt give up much value and you can pursue a cheaper position for your last starting spot so I think your pick made more sense too.

Boy I'm glad Ariza made it back to me. Took a risk passing on him with ardee and migya both needing SFs.

Iguodala going just before my pick was annoying.

Seeing how many still don’t have a C, I’m having second thoughts on that

Torn between two guys here. One is the clear better player for same fga, but I think the other guy fits a bit better beside Dwight

Jesus, I'm glad I have the option of starting Jones. The PF pool has suddenly been decimated.

Well I’m about as smart as a dump truck, was debating between Shawn Marion and Kevin McHale only to realize McHale was taken and Marion only played 6 games in the playoffs with CLE, none in the finals lol.
