Amid the free agent rumor swirls, this is the only real down time in the NBA schedule: after the draft and before training camp, unless you are a summer league junkie like me. In continuing with a series last year (click here to see the 2008 NBA Redraft, I will admit some of my picks were misguided at the time), I will be redrafting the 2009 NBA Draft for each team in the first round.
The profile of the draft eventually revealed itself as a weak draft, seeing careers unfold three years later. After Blake Griffin and a few other current or future stars, it was filled with role players and many non-rotation players. Still, I press on and bog through the mixed results.
Join me in a shameless attempt at a fruitless endeavor. It'll be fun, I promise, and I know the readers will disagree. If you do, do it as part of a constructive discourse by leaving a comment at the bottom. Thanks for reading in advance and let us begin!
