Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, welcome back to another sports talk episode.
I am Euros Matthew. Talk.
Now, I understand that.
I just did a episode of not too long ago.
I just I thought I wanted to go through this with you guys, and hopefully you guys agree.
Or if you guys disagree, so be it.
But we are going to be redrafting the 2003 n b A draft.
Why? And my redrafting 2003 nb a draft.
Okay, so let me tell you guys a little bit.
So, um, I was, uh I was four years old when this happened.
I know I'm young, um, and so I remember vividly of this draft, and I remember some of their picks for the teams.
I remember who got drafted wear and etcetera.
I remember that.
That was probably what made me wanted.
I love basketball.
Um, and I started getting older, and I started really watching sports.
Um, so let's get into it.
So let's get into the redrafting of the 2003 n b. A draft.
I don't know about you guys.
All right, so Like I said, this is my first draft of the MBA.
Um, that I watched.
Um, Now I was born in, um, 99.
Um, but I do remember this specific craft very vividly.
So for the number one pick, LeBron James, he's gonna just be that was probably the best pick of the draft.
Um, LeBron James.
So any original pick was LeBron.
So everyone knows that was just not.
That's just a no brainer.
Great athlete on perfect picks of the Cavaliers.
Okay, so number pick number two pick for the Detroit Pistons.
Um, where I'm going to say Dwayne Wade pass ago.
Picked number two.
It was originally picked five for you.
Originally supposed on.
You got to go to the heat.
But I'm saying for number two, I think Duin, which should be picked number two and go the pistons.
So so far, we got LeBron James at one.
Going with that too.
Oh, imagine that, uh, Dwayne Wade on the piste inside Isis. Crazy.
OK, number three.
We got the Denver Nuggets.
We're gonna so like Carmelo Anthony.
Um I mean, Carmelo Anthony is a great player on the made the playoffs with them.
A plethora of times zero is just a no brainer.
And number four, another no brainer.
Is Chris Brooke Bosch going the Raptors as just a no brainer? And number five, um, David West.
So David West was number 18 in this draft, but, ah, that I say that David West should be number five and he should go to the Miami Heat.
The original pick, as everyone knows, is Wait, wait.
Um Number six is the Clippers, and they're going nations.
They should get Josh.
Our, um He had a pack Euler career.
The abruptly ended in the middle of his prime with an A C l injury and some medicinal problem.
His best season.
He averaged around 20 points and seven rebounds per game and was a solid defender.
Um, so maybe if you went to the Clippers, maybe his career would have been different.
So we got number seven.
Um, that's just another no brainer.
Henrik, Um, that's just perfect spot for him.
He was there now is his original pick was seven.
So perfect on that Number eight, I believe boars die.
Iowa should have been picked by the Bucks.
Not, um, where he was originally picked.
Hay was number 21 in the draft on the original pick thrower, the Bucks.
At number eight was T.
Um, number nine.
And that is for that.
That's for the Knicks.
Chris Kaman was number originally.
Um, So I think the Knicks should have gotten Chris.
Um, original tech was Michael Sweetney.
Um, he's not the ***iest pick for the Knicks, but Chris, come on was an above average center.
Um, he went to the all star team in 2010 eso.
Maybe if you once in exile, little maybe something would have happened here.
So number Ted, we got the Washington Wizards selecting Kyle Korver again.
Carl Korver was at number 51 in this draft.
Um, I think you should have went to the Wizards as just me.
Um, Kyle Korver, if you guys do not know Kyle Korver, he actually was not Was he still in the league? Is the that one of the best three point shooters and the leak and we history um and I really believe that he should've went to the Wizards instead of going to the six years Who that Who should? I went to the Wizards instead of the 60.
Um, are so at number 11 for the Golden State Warriors.
We got Mo Williams.
He was number 47.
Original pick for the Golden State Warriors was McHale of P tress.
Is the Warriors actually picked Mo Williams? They probably would have been something at that time.
Um, I think Mo Williams was a great player.
He was 1/6 man, point guard and shooting guard.
Williams could always be counted on to get buckets, but still adequately distributed around average of 13 points and five assists per game in his 13 year career for number 12 he Seattle SuperSonics should have gotten Leandro Barbosa.
He was originally 28 and the original pick for the SuperSonics was Nick Colson for number 13 Grizzlies.
Um, this is where T J.
Ford should have followed us.
Cell was at number 13 with the Grizzlies.
If he went to the Grizzlies, keep, I would have done a little bit better.
Ford was number eight, the regional pick for the Grizzlies was Marcus Banks from Nevada.
Um, speaking of speed before it's Gary Spinal injury suffered toward the end of his rookie season.
Florida was one of the faster players in the MBA.
That's what the core is Lee's need and somebody was speak somebody that could get to the boat basket quick and makes employees.
Um, but unfortunately, T J four did not end up with the Grizzlies.
Ah, Seattle SuperSonics should have went with marquees.
Daniels, who went undrafted, Who did the SuperSonics pick out 14.
It was Luke Rig Nord.
Okay, Syria, because they re drafted a non traditional point guard in number 12 and Barbosa, who supersonic settle on a versatile small forward who could make up for some of their play making deficiencies in select marquees.
Daniels Daniels, who went undrafted an old three and signing the Mavericks late November, played so well in 56 games that he made second T and old Brookie.
I don't know what to tell you.
I supersize messed up on that one.
If they got more keys.
Daniels Boy, I think they would have been something, um, OK, number 15.
P tress should have been on the magic.
He was selected number lovin.
Um, so who did they take at 15? Reasonably to the magic was Ah, Reese.
Gains from Louis Lewisville McHale.
Petri spent two of his best years as a three and dealing with the magic, helping them reach the N B A finals and, 09 His frame and skill set, um, were a little ahead of his time.
I would compare him to Robert Covington.
Um, but he would have been a coveted rule player in todays and be a The Magic grabbed him and number 15 to help what in Tracy McGrady's burden as the only legitimate wing on the roster.
So if he could have been on the magic, that I would have been amazing, Um, so was keep going.
Jose Calderone, who was undrafted in No.
Three, should want to the Celtics.
Okay, The original player, who was at 16 was Troy Belt.
Armed with pick 16 and 20.
The Boston Celtics desperately needed a point guard to get their franchise player, Paul Pierce, easy looks.
Instead of taking you swing and miss on markets banks, they smartened up and take the study inefficient.
Who's a colder, own out of Spain cauldrons pass, first mentality and spot up shooting would have played right into Pierce's strengths as he score and employment.
So it Jose Calderone went to the Celtics.
Do you think the Celtics would have been something? I think so.
I really think that if Jose Calderone went to the Celtics, the Celtics would have been something they would have.
Actually, they would have not have to wait till, um, so six, Right, um, to win the fines if I could have been earlier.
All right, Number 17.
We got Kendrick Perkins to go to the sons.
Hurricanes went to 27.
Okay, in all reality of the notoriously cheap Jerry Collagen gel, O probably would have traded his pick for cash in the redraft.
Since we're operating in, Ah, hypothetical, let's say two keeps the pick and takes a bruising, defense oriented senator help protect his young star forwards Amar E.
Stoudemire and Sean Marrone.
This job was pre Mike D.
Antonio Tony so Kendrick Perkins still would have fit with sons plans at the time, So if Perkins went to the signs, what could have happened, guy.
Now, the original pick was Zarco.
Cab are coppa from Serbia? That was the son stick.
I've never this dude.
That's how big will impact he made in the NBA.
Um, I give Perkins went to the sons.
You would have made a huge impact.
He would have done something with the sons and probably at least bring them to another finals appearance. I don't know.
Anything could happen.
My number 18 New Orleans Hornets Selected drum roll, please.
Who'd onus has long.
Okay, now I am a Lakers and heat fans.
And for that, I has Lem.
Oh, no, if you want to Little hornets.
Uh oh. No. Three.
And he stayed with the Hornets.
You would have played with Chris Paul.
Um, and he would have played with a d.
Um, if he stayed the duration like he did with the heat.
So also, I have to admit, the reason why he also sustained long is because, um, ****l troll loves.
Has he advocates were, um but we're not talking about that.
We're talking about number 18.
The Hornets select doll in its has, um Xavier.
So what did to the heat? New Orleans Hornets takes the next closest thing to him you don't has has been like West has, um, was undersized, ready? Big man with a picture and the pop jump shot like West has Long probably would have needed a couple of years of development.
Would have had a breakout season with the arrival Chris, Paul and 05 tough trade off of the Horner's, but at least a recoup at about 75% of what West gave them and has Okay, I think, has it would have been a great addition to the Hornets thinking of Chris Paul coming in, 05 And then in the later years, getting a D, they would have been a meat.
Okay, so Number 19 Utah Jazz selects Travis Outlaw.
You'd originally went for number 23 and the original pick for the Jazz was Sasha.
Have luhovyk from Montenegran? No, if instead of catching the back end of the jail, believes or his era, So why do I say the jail believes this is because that's the bad era of the Trail Blazers.
The aptly named Travis Outlaw gets scooped up on the Jazz in the old three redraft.
The Jazz were deep at the wing position to know three so outlawed would have been allowed to develop that inappropriate place work player coming out of high school.
By the time they're on Williams with was handed the keys of the offense, the Jazz would have had a quite the roster with two top and athletes and Dream Kerlan Co.
And Outlaw at Wing and two gifted big man Carlos Boozer and Mehmet Oakar that would have been in an insane jazz steed.
Okay, if they had those key players, I think that guy's actually would not be so bad.
Um, now, nowadays, in the modern era, the Jazz were doing phenomenal.
Right now they're doing amazing.
I think that if you give them or key players, and if this rookie class off 2020 actually gives them the boost, the Jazz are gonna go to the playoffs.
Um, all right, so I'm number 20.
We got Nicholson.
Nicholson was originally picked 12 s, so I think that the Boats Boston Celtics should have picked up ****elson.
The original pick for the Celtics at number 20 was Dante Jones from Duke.
Instead of ending up was Marcus Banks and Kendrick Perkins, a Celtic come away with Jose Calderon and Nicola's? Well, it's not the ridiculous hall today.
Self stands are used to.
They definitely benefit from hindsight in the region.
Coulson Breezes steadying presence to the team was anything but during the early to mid two thousands and retrospect having Ricky Data's been Baker, Antone Walker, The Long Day West acceptable cycled through your roster probably wasn't the smartest thing in the world.
Now I think that if the Celtics pick up Nick up Nick Coulson, if they had picked him up, I think that the Celtics would have been something with Nicholson and with their roster that they had with Paul Piers.
And I think it would be amazing for them to actually accomplish.
But again, who do they pick at number 20 on Billups and Celtics? Nicholson did not end up with Celtics.
It was Dahntay Jones.
And but in the redraft that happened, I think Nicholson should have been picked number 20 with Celtics at number one, t one the Atlanta Hawks.
So let Luke Ridnour originally number 14 original pick for the Hawks was Boris de Law.
Now, Boris, I was no right player, but if they got book written or instead of boards do all seems like a bad trade off for the Hawks.
But people forget that Atlanta traded You are as a throwing in the Joe Johnson sign and trade and 05 those rigged towards a nice pick here as he brings a pass first mentality.
That's what you need.
You need somebody that will pass first.
Okay, you can't rely on a player that is always going to score.
So if you have somebody that is willing to pass the ball, work with his team, that somebody you need on your team somebody that keep written or is a nice pick and he also is a shoot first players with a number of shoot first players like Jason Terry and Shareef Abdur Rahi.
Okay, and Number 22 we got the New Jersey Nets, and they selected Steve Blake.
Steve Blake originally was number 38 original pick was neuron plan in the from Bosnia and hers of Gotovina, a number 23 Riyadh Portland Trail Blazers, who select Georgia's hates, who was originally at number 10.
The blazes were in need of a wing who could contribute a little quicker than Outlaw, who only played eight games and all three. No. Four.
That way, they could have moved off of us.
Some of the wild cards.
All right, Number 24.
The Lakers should have picked Luke Walton.
Not when he was at 32 at 24.
Lakers have picked. We won't.
Who do they pick at Number 24? It is Brian from Illinois's Google in that number 32.
So why not just take him here in the redraft at his people? On average, 11 points, five rebounds and four assists.
25 was the Detroit distance.
And that was Carlos Delfino, originally 25.
And what Picard react 25.
So this was his actual pick, although it would have been more appropriate at number 25.
Something tells me that the Piston still would not have selected Darko Millet kick here.
Number 26 Minnesota Timberwolves Select will agree who was originally at four you want and you pick.
It was duty Abby from Westbury Christian High School at number 27 the Memphis Grizzly Select, Zaza Pachulia, not at number 42.
Original pick was Kendrick Perkins.
28 The San Antonio Spurs sort of selected Darko Millet chick here.
But where does he go? He was at number two at the Detroit Pistons, and who was the original pickup for the Spurs? At number 28 was Leandro Barbosa and number 29 dollars Mavericks Select Matt Boehner.
And he was originally pick 45 the original pick at 29 was Josh Howard from Week fours and those air the 1st 29 picks of the NBA.
