turiaf, walton, bynum, javaris, farmar, i'm ok with, not star material right off the bat, but each one of them can become a valuble member of the team
yeah cook was a hard one, he was the 24th pick big ten scoring champion seemed like a safe pick but seems to actually get worse each year instead of better.. once again it just goes to show that once you get past the 15th player in the draft it can go either way
jerry west once said in an interview, if you can get one player that can help the team within the next 3 years it was a good draft... that was when he had a stcked roster so it actually didn't matter if he found a good pick, but the point still stands
considering how some other teams have fared with low picks - San Antonio, for instance.
well the thing is with a team like san antonio, first off they may have one of the best scouting teams in the league, if they are not the best they gotta be a close second..secondly when your as deep as the spurs you can afford to gamble on that player that everyone else may like but will pass up because of some quirk or something, the guy maybe a great shooter but he's slow or can't jump...the spurs can and do gamble on those guys and they end up panning out for them
