Which NBA Lottery Pick would you Build Around?

Posted by Jeff Chan Categories: Drafts, Fantasy, NBA,

NBA Draft Lottery logoAs a fan I love participating in the sports polls by ESPN and Sports Illustrated just to see what the rest of America thinks.  I also like to compare and see if I’m on the same page with other fans across the country.  The newest poll asked which player from the last two NBA drafts would you most want to build your team around?

The choices are Andrew Bogut, Dwight Howard,  Emakor Okafor, and Chris Paul.  The reason I found this particular poll interesting was that I couldn’t make my decision for about five minutes; normally these polls make me formulate an answer instantaneously.  I could not choose from either Dwight Howard or Chris Paul.  I finally went with my initial gut and went with Chris Paul, because finding a good floor general is just too hard to find.  My debate with Howard was that, scouts and GM’s normally go for size when it comes down to two players.  Howard will end up being a rebounding machine which might also make me regret my decision.

Well, America has spoken and with over 72,000 votes it was a close race.  The winner was Dwight Howard with 36%, Chris Paul with 30%, Emeka Okafor with 23%, and Andrew Bogut coming last with 12%.
