1980 - 2006

6. Mike O'Koren, North Carolina New Jersey
6. Orlando Woolridge, Notre Dame Chicago
6. Trent Tucker, Minnesota New York
6. Russell Cross, Purdue Golden State
6. Mel Turpin, Kentucky Washington (1)
6. Joe Kleine, Arkansas Sacramento
6. William Bedford, Memphis State Phoenix
6. Kenny Smith, North Carolina Sacramento
6. Hersey Hawkins, Bradley L.A. Clippers (1)
6. Stacey King, Oklahoma Chicago
6. Felton Spencer, Louisville Minnesota
6. Doug Smith, Missouri Dallas
6. Tom Gugliotta, North Carolina State Washington
6. Calbert Cheaney, Indiana Washington
6. Sharone Wright, Clemson Philadelphia
6. Bryant Reeves, Oklahoma State Vancouver
6. Antoine Walker, Kentucky Boston
6. Ron Mercer, Kentucky Boston
6. Robert Traylor, Michigan Dallas (2)
6. Wally Szczerbiak, Miami (Ohio) Minnesota
6. DerMarr Johnson, Cincinnati Atlanta
6. Shane Battier, Duke Memphis
6. Dajuan Wagner, Memphis Cleveland
6. Chris Kaman, Central Michigan L.A. Clippers
6. Josh Childress, Stanford Atlanta
6 Martell Webster, Seattle Prep HS Portland
6 Brandon Roy, Washington Minnesota

What this list tells me is that the only real players are SF or 2 guards. A lot of teams reached for a low post player and they were all failures. And from that list the only real impact player is Roy, however he would have gone higher but there were injury concerns. Also a few guys had some really good years and then fell flat so the jury is still out on Roy IMO.

I'd trade down to the slot where only good players get picked...

of course player scouting is the key but when the best player picked is Orlando Woolridge in 27 years there has to be something about the pick. for the most part it looks like college guys who had great college careers but weren't NBA players or big men who were drafted WAY too high because they were 7 ft

I was so wrong about Kaman

He's turned into a very good defensive center with a competent offensive game.

I was going to flip out (I was at the draft) if the Knicks took Kaman but the Clippers snatched him up right before the Knicks- I thought I was relieved. Whoops :)

There are some quality big men on this list..

Antoine Walker was a stud in his first go round with the Celtics, 7 straight years of around 20 pts and 7-10 rebounds per game. He just declined once he started putting on weight.

Chris Kaman just had a breakout year with 15 pts 12 rebounds and 3 blocks a game.

Gugliotta in his prime consistently put up around 15-16 points and 8 rebounds a game.

Mercer, Sczerbiack, Battier, Childress and Webster are all players that I would take on my team any day.

Agreed. Some good solid players on the list but it is surprising that that there were no breakout stars.

What's the track record with the #10 pick? Now that is spotty for reasons other than JJ Reddick inexplicably getting picked there.

Some good history with the 10th pick. there are some flops but also a lot of very serviceable players and some consistent all-stars.

Reddick went 11th but now we are deeper in the first round so in my mind you are looking at a strong player who may make an all-star team or 2 in his career but worst case should be a starter and or solid contributor to a playoff team.

With the 6th pick you should be getting a guy who best case you can build the team around worst case is a definite starter and the second or third best player on your team.
