Re: Pacers/Mavericks postgame thread
There was a thread before the season where we were talking about the draft and I had PG at 5 in a redo.
I think now it wouldn't have been a bad pick for Paul at #1 even. You could definitely make that argument, especially when you add up the intangibles like his demeanor, attitude and professionalism. Greg Monroe and John Wall are right there too, possibly Favors, but it's more of a tossup. Demarcus Cousins is a beast, but so was Ron Ron... I would have him behind those guys now.
At any rate, we totally lucked out with that pick. Larry Bird is awesome.
