What if someone took Tony Parker sooner then 26 or whatever he was?

Or if Duncan went to the Celts with Billups instead of Ron Mercer, Boston coulda been winnin titles for years this decade.

Kobe woulda been the all time scoring leader by now if he stayed in Charlotte with nothing around him.


Wasn't VC drafted by Golden St?

I don't remember/recall this
...more info.
They were trying to trade Paul Peirce and Al Jeferson for the number 3 pick so they could draft chris paul.

Actually I think it was only Paul Peirce. Bill Simmons mentioned it a couple times.

Some more I thought of:
What if Portland kept that #3 pick in 05 and picked DWill or CP3?

What if Pavel Podkolzine had stayed in the 03 Draft? There were rumors he was headed to Toronto for awhile.

What if Washington dealed the #1 pick in 01 for Elton Brand or Stephon Marbury?

What if Ben Gordon didn't have that great workout that he did in Chicago in 04?

this has to be one of the biggest steals in draft history.
Josh Howard (although not as good as TP), and Rashard Lewis are up there too. Not to mention Arenas. All 30+ picks.

And hell, Manu was like 57th pick.
