Default 1999-2001 NBA drafts: Who we chose, who we should've chose, and what could've been

1999:
Who we chose- Elton Brand, Ron Artest, Michael Ruffin
Who we should've chose- Elton Brand, Ron Artest, Manu Ginobili

2000:
Who we chose- Marcus Fizer
Who we should've chose- Jamal Magloire

2001:
Who we chose- Eddy Curry
Who we could've chose- Joe Johnson, Zach Randolph, Gerald Wallace, Tony Parker(best fit)

Our line-up would have been:

PG: Tony Parker
SG: Manu Ginobili
SF: Ron Artest
PF: Elton Brand
C: Jamal Magloire

You guys think we could've won a championship if we had that team and kept it?

The Bulls didn't have a good enough scouting department good enough to know who Ginobili and Parker even were. Very few teams bothered to grab players from overseas teams until the 2000s after they started seeing teams have great success doing it. Yeah there have been some international players prior to that, but not many at all.

I agree 100% that Eddy Curry was a horrible pick though. Anyone else would've been better.

If they did keep all that, and maybe signed a decent free agent center, they could've contended for a title prolly.

You're missing intangibles.

The coaches that influence players to get to that next level. The players who know the tricks and pass them on to keep their team winning. The right contracts to keep players happy, the right training staff to keep players conditioned.

Some people think the unrecognized variables mean nothing in the NBA< but they mean absolutely everything.
