DescriptionRound 1, Pick 3: Shawn Marion

Okay, I have to admit it.  I asked Ron whom he was going to take with the second overall pick and he said that he probably would go with Marion at that point.  However, he had no problem in relinquishing that pick if I wanted to write about the Matrix because he knew about my man-love for the guy.  All I can say is… MY JEDI MIND TRICK WORKED!

Seriously, I am crushing on Marion and Ron was nice enough to let me pick him for the inaugural Dropping Dimes Draft Blog.  Ron… thank you, sir.

DescriptionOpinionated.  o•pin•ion•at•ed

adj.
Holding stubbornly and often unreasonably to one’s own opinions.

Now, to me, there is a fine line between stubbornness and persistence...especially in the world of fantasy basketball.  Sure, I can choose to like 28 points a game, but I can also choose to despise the four turnovers that come with it.  You see, I’m not a big fan of “baggage.”  I’m a firm believer that you shouldn’t have to “give and take” in this sport, thus I choose to hate on certain big name players from time to time for the things that they don’t do…

With that said, I present to you, the soon-to-be (if not already!) dedicated readers of DroppingDimes.com, the first Sargent Says of the 2006-07 basketball season.

Amare Rocking the Rim!Okay, some of you are probably still infatuated with what Stoudemire did during the 2004-2005 season and it’s nothing to sneeze at - 26.0 ppg, 8.9 rpg, 1.0 spg, 1.6 bpg, 55.9 FG%, and a big man that can actually shoot free throws, my word, at a 73.3% clip!  And on top of all those very good numbers, Stoudemire was center eligible!  That in itself elevates his value a great deal!  But, did you read the subject line?  I’m sure you did.  What does it say?  That’s right… despite all that good stuff during the aforementioned season, do not draft Amare Stoudemire.

I know, I’m crazy, right?  And I’m sure I’m going to hear from all the Suns fans, but I’m telling you, listen to Uncle Dennis, Amare will not be worth where he gets drafted and we all know that some guy (the proverbial that guy; don’t be him, I implore you) will take him in the first or second round.

I believe in Chris Paul

I think Steve Nash is probably definitely the king of assists at this point and will be again, but don’t laugh about Chris Paul possibly taking the assists title in his sophomore campaign.

Nash has the horses to run the floor with him and great shooters that can stop and pop, as well as great penetrators that can take it to the house. And, obviously, Nash has great court vision, but he’s lucky to have the personnel that he does - namely Shawn Marion, Amare Stoudemire, and the perimeter player du annee. This past season it was Raja Bell and Leandro Barbosa; the previous season, Joe Johnson and Quentin Richardson.

Who did Paul have his rookie year?
