Peja Stojakovic
Round 4, Pick 5 Peja Stojakovic, SF, New Orleans Hornets

Thanks Al for the write up on Stephon Marbury! Just wanted to give you another outlet to express your man-crush. Now it is my turn to write about my fiancée’s crush on Peja Stojakovic for Al’s team. Just proves to show that chicks dig the long ball.

Peja Stojakovic is one of the best shooters in the NBA. It is no fluke that he is the two-time All Star 3-Point Shooting Contest winner (’02-’03).  He sports a mean 5 o’clock shadow that is reminiscent of the cowboys in the old spaghetti westerns, so imagine Peja with a cowboy hat, cowboy boots with spurs, poncho, rifle, and a six shooter, and you know he could totally pull it off. In the off-season, Peja the gunslinger for hire was signed to 5-year $64 million contract with the Hornets to ride shotgun with Chris Paul. Peja and Chris can be the modern day Butch Cassidy and Sundance Kid with Peja playing Butch and Chris playing the Sundance Kid…wait hang on. Chris Paul is not white.

Kirk Hinrich can dunk?Round 4, Pick 2: Kirk Hinrich, PG/SG, Chicago Bulls

Just about everyone remembers the top five of the 2003 NBA Draft:
1) LeBron James - The kid who became a man and found witnesses to his greatness almost immediately.
2) Darko Milicic - The other kid whose potential never surfaced until he found some Magic.
3) Carmelo Anthony - If LeBron has the potential to be one of the best ever and Wade has his ring, where will Melo fit in when all is said and done?
4) Chris Bosh - Smooth big man makes the game look easy and is reppin’ Canada to the fullest.
5) Dwyane Wade - The first to get a ring that showed just how good he could be during an amazing Finals run.

But what about those players outside this sphere of current and future greatness?  I bet most would forget that Chris Kaman was taken right after Wade at sixth overall.  It took him a little longer to break out, but he eventually did last season.  And at the seventh pick?  Well, he played well enough to join four of the top five picks (James, Anthony, Bosh, and Wade) on the All Rookie first team and finished in the top eight in total assists and assists per game average.  Of course, all you have to do is look at the picture to know who I’m talking about - Zydrunas Ilgauskas.  Just kidding.

This is all about Kirk Hinrich, his world, and the fact that we’re all squirrels in it just trying to get a nut.

Ben Wallace is now a BullRound 2, Pick 10: Ben Wallace, PF/C, Chicago Bulls

After signing a four year, $60 million dollar deal during the offseason to join the Chicago Bulls, there are big expectations for the team this upcoming season.  Can one man really make that much of a difference?  Well, when you have personnel in place and have the foresight and vision on how you want to build a team, the answer is YES.  Big Ben Wallace will make a difference on the Bulls and guess what.

He can make a difference for your fantasy basketball team as well.
