    this is partly my fault. i got confused on who picked what when, and thought drexler was his third pick. so YES it is mcclain's turn, and i've just sent him a PM clearing up my previous confusion. my apologies.

    McClain's going to think we're all impatient here because I mentioned it in our ongoing PM conversation :p

    Looking to trade up. Anyone interested in some later picks? Or, since Trimao has imposed regulations, promises for who I'll pick?

    I may talk trades after my 3rd or 4th pick. Too early for me now since I only have 2 players at the moment.

    When I wanted to move up, it means that after your third pick, you will...

    More or less since we are pretty close in the order and you'll have back-to-back picks after my third.

    Really like that pick EF, killer frontcourt with Wilt/Barkley and I was definately looking at KG as a potential guy for my pick, curious who that other guy you were looking at was...

    Kevin McHale

    Out of my 1st 3 picks, this (by far) was the toughest decision.

    They beat Boston!: 2009-2010 L.A. Lakers: Back-to-Back World Champions :cool:

    I think he means he is going to proposition you for a trade at some point, but I am not entirely fluent in Yak.

    I was hoping Wade dropped back to me, though to be honest I would be conflicted to choose him over another.

    This is very interesting, as I don't really have any idea what any of you value in a basketball player. A lot of the players--outside of the more obvious choices--that I value pretty highly seem to be being overlooked. But I guess it is still early.
