That can only happen when a select group of 30 NBA writers and super-fans get together and participate in the first official NBA Re-Draft.
Completely redistributing all of the league’s talent across the 30 current teams, these basketball minds built 12-man rosters geared to compete with each other during the 2012-2013 season in a magical world where injuries are suddenly healed before the first game.
Where will Jeremy Lin end up? How good will Anthony Davis and the rest of the 2012 rookie class be?
Is Brian Scalabrine even worth drafting?
For the answers to all these questions and far more, this is the 2012 Re-Draft, a unique preview of the upcoming 2012-13 season.
This article will contain the first-round results of the 12-round selection process, complete with a description of each pick, as written by the team's make-believe general manager.
