    As far as the voting being a popularity contest, my view is that it cheapens the whole process and does S2 a disservice. Why? Well, why bother to have the draft at all when we can just vote for the most popular posters in a poll. Why does it do S2 a disservice? It sure makes the appearance of the overall actual basketball knowledge (when it comes to all-time players) look weak.
    You hear the one about the fella who died, went to the pearly gates? St. Peter lets him in. Sees a guy in a suit making a closing argument. Says 'Who's that?' St. Peter says, 'Oh, that's God. Thinks he's Denny Crane.

    Regarding assists... Wilt averaged 4.4 for his career in an era when assists weren't easily awarded. He had back to back seasons of 7.8 and 8.6 APG- not sure if any center ever has come close to those kinds of figures let alone leading the league in assists. Given that he would be double teamed by bigger players today, he'd most certainly be passing out of those more. Combine that with relaxed awarding of assists, he'd have a good shot at 10 APG, IMO.

    Wilt also never passed at that level without subjugating himself on offense. And when he averaged over 8 assists a game his team took 8400 shots that season.

    Man I missed out on a good thread, oh well.

    It appears to me that a lot of these posts are made because a lot of people are butthurt and have their head up their ass over their opinion of older players. It's not too surprising, you usually get this in a lot of "___drafts," especially one where there's such a large spectra of comparisons to be made, especially the modern vs old school dynamic. At least that's my perception.

I enjoyed the draft process.
    I rest my case.

    despite this being a draft about the greatest players of all time, a team with a bunch of guys barely into the prime of their careers wins... just fucking stupid and thoughtless voting.

    Actually thru the research I had of the players I drafted, I learned alot about some of the older more uncommonly known players of the league. It was fun to learn.

    Yeah, same here even though I picked quite a few people from the 90's, I looked up most of these other guys other people took just to find out about them and stuff.

    I feel bad that I missed this thread. I'll back up huevonkiller on this. I think Rodman is the greatest rebounder of all time. And, moreover, I don't think its even close.

    Sorry Wilt, sorry Russ.
