Pick Team Draft Player Diff Comments
1 Los Angeles Clippers Usenet Mike Bibby -1 Bibby went to Vancouver.  I'm not sure why.
NBA Michael Olowokandi
2 Vancouver Grizzlies Usenet Paul Pierce -8 Paul took a huge slide.  Bibby gives Vancouver what, 4 PG's?  Can't blame the Usenet GM, almost all Mock drafts had Pierce take by 5.
NBA Mike Bibby
3 Denver Nuggets Usenet Michael Olowokandi +2 Olowokandi really jumped in the days before the draft.   Denver wishes it could be so lucky.  A good pick for Thad.
NBA Raef LaFrentz
4 Toronto Raptors Usenet Raef LaFrentz +1 Jamison has been traded to GS
NBA Antwan Jamison
5 Golden State Warriors Usenet Larry Hughes -3 Russ said, don't draft Vince.  So they traded him to Toronto.  Russ selected Brevin Knight last year and that worked out so we shall see.
NBA Vince Carter
6 Dallas Mavericks Usenet Dirk Nowitzki -3 Was Dirk in or was he out?  He is going to play in Europe from what I hear.
NBA Robert Traylor
7 Sacramento Kings Usenet Antwan Jamison +3 A big plus 3 for for the Kings.  Antwan took a dive in the Usenet draft who tends to hate "Tweeners".
NBA Jason Williams
8 Philadelphia 76ers Usenet Vince Carter +3  
NBA Larry Hughes
9 Milwaukee Bucks Usenet Robert Traylor +3 Traylor decided to get into shape after leaving Michigan (for which I'm sure the Wolverines is much appreciated).

14 Houston Rockets Usenet Nazr Mohammed -15 I think that Nazr should have stayed in school :-).

NBA Bryce Drew
17 Minnesota Timberwolves Usenet Michael Doleac +5 Doleac dropped in the Usenet draft because of a lack of athleticism.

NBA Mirsad Turkcan
19 Milwaukee Bucks Usenet Keon Clark +6 Usenet GM's had "Tweeners" and players with a bad attitude.  A big +6 for the Bucks.
NBA Pat Garrity
20 Atlanta Hawks Usenet Matt Harpring +5  
NBA Roshown McLeod
21 Charlotte Hornets Usenet Brian Skinner -1 Ricky Davis!! Ricky had a great camp and great workouts.   I thought that Charlotte would take  Mohammed.  Ricky did not get picked by the Usenet'ers
NBA Ricky Davis
22 Los Angeles Clippers Usenet Vladimir Stepanija -5 Not a bad pick by the Charlotte GM.  -1 at this point is great.
NBA Brian Skinner

NBA Tyrron Lue
24 San Antonio Spurs Usenet Ansu Sesay -6  
NBA Felipe Lopez
25 Indiana Pacers Usenet Felipe Lopez +1 What a pick!  +1 is really good.  Lopez might help the Spurs but I'm not sure about his outside shot.
NBA Al Harrington
26 Los Angeles Lakers Usenet Bryce Drew +10 A huge +10 for the Lakers.  Drew had a great Chicago camp and really jumped.  I'm not sure about going at #16.
NBA Sam Jacobson
27 Seattle Sonics Usenet Roshown McLeod +7 I have to admit that I did not think McLeod would be drafted in the first round.  Good for him.

32 New York Knicks Usenet Brad Miller -oo Miller went undrafted.  The only player in the Usenet draft not drafted in the NBA draft
Seattle Sonics NBA Rashard Lewis
33 Portland Trailblazers Usenet Radoslav Nesterovic +16 I knew this would bite the Usenet'ers.  The funny thing is that the Minn. GM wrote the scouting report for Nesterovic and hated him.
