I've seen a lot of teams with really good rated players be either average or just plain bad. Hell the Suns McAdoo and Haywood in their primes and still weren't very good. The way I see it, the Suns have a pretty good starting 5 already, they need more bench players. I didn't feel like wasting a #2 on a position already filled with a solid blue, and young, guy and make one of them come of the bench and thus make him unhappy. Trade away the pick for a good reserve and two 1st round picks...one in the same draft and one in '85. It's a gamble, but could ultimately be better for both teams in the end.</p>

<p>Draft results: (Only highlighting key picks)</p><p> </p><p>

1. Warriors - Clyde Drexler</p><p>

2. Warriors - Ralph Sampson</p><p>

3. Knicks - Dale Ellis</p><p>

4. Pistons - Craig Ehlo</p><p>

5. Lakers - Sidney Green</p><p>

6. Hawks - Thurl Bailey</p><p>

7. Celtics - Mark West</p><p>

8. Kings - Doc Rivers</p><p>

9. Spurs - Steve Stipanovich </p><p>

10. Jazz - Bob Hansen</p><p>

11. Pacers - Rodney McCray</p><p>

12. Mavs - Byron Scott</p><p>

13. Suns - Derek Harper</p><p> </p><p>

The Suns would have drafted a PG with the 2nd pick if they kept it anyways, so they didn't really lose anything as Harper, Rivers, and Scott all had the same rating. The PGs were the most talented position in this draft, but due to teams already having good PGs, they fell in the draft.</p>

<p>A pretty big trade went down.</p><p> </p><p>

The Hawks sent SF Terry Tyler and C Thurl Baily to the Pistons for C James Donaldson and SF Bruce Seals.</p><p> </p><p>

Reason for trade: Tyler is a solid blue player relegated to a bench role playing behind Dan Roundfield. Pistons needed in upgrade at SF in their starting 5. Bruce Seals is more suited to be a backup, which is what he will do in Atlanta. Donaldson is an upgrade at Center for Atlanta and Bailey has potential to be a suitable replacement for Donaldson in Detroit.</p>

<p>Another big trade:</p><p> </p><p>

The Clippers send:</p><p> </p><p>

PG - Rory Sparrow</p><p>

SF -Kenny Carr</p><p> </p><p>

The Warriors send:</p><p> </p><p>

PG - Norm Nixon</p><p>

SF - George Johnson</p><p> </p><p>

Reason for trade: Sparrow is too good to be a backup to Magic, Warriors get an upgrade at starting PG, Nixon will fit in better backing up Magic. Johnson is an upgrade for the Clippers at SF.</p>

Mid season standings.</p><p> </p><p>

Cavs have been ravaged by injuries throughout the season.</p><p> </p><p>

If the season ended today, the first two picks of the draft would go to the same two teams as last season (Warriors and Suns).</p><p> </p><p>

Milwaukee's having a terrible season after the success of last year.</p>

Congrats to the Clippers! First time in their history.</p><p> </p><p>

Surprised that the Bulls got upset in the first round. Also surprised to see the Pacers sweeping the Bullets, then the Clippers sweeping the Pacers.</p>

All I have to say is WOW. The Warriors can not seem to find a winning formula despite having Clyde Drexler, Ralph Sampson, AND Michael Jordan. What's worse is that they traded their 1st round pick to the Suns for Ralph Sampson. So if they keep this up, the Suns will have a top 3 pick.</p>

<p>This is an awesome read! I'm currently in the process of running my own "Rewrite History" league and it's awesome!</p><p> </p><p>

My question is what are Adrian Dantley's stats each year he's won the MVP? Is he blowing away the competition?</p><p> </p><p> </p><p>

Keep up the good work!</p>

<p>Well it's kinda hard to say...Dantley has been leading the NBA in scoring most of these years, average close to 40 PPG. Dr. J has been the closest to him, winning a few MVP himself. However, I think Moses Malone had a case to win a few of them over the last few years. I think this game takes scoring way too much into account when determining the MVP. </p><p> </p><p>

I have a feeling that Dantley's reign of terror is almost over. The season is almost over, the Nuggets have 8 games left and Dantley has only played in 46 games so far this season due to various injuries. I have a feeling the MVP is Moses Malone's to win.</p>

The Pacers won their first NBA Title.


They almost didn't make it out of the first round as they were down 2-0 to the Knicks.


The Nets upset of the Bulls was surprising in that they didn't have 3 of their 5 starters for that series.


The Clippers should not have even made it that far with Magic being out.
