I strongly believe Darko would’ve developed into an All-Star had he been drafted into the right team and situation. Much like it played out in real life, Outlaw works out well here. This Class ranks right up there with the historic 1984 and 1996 NBA Draft Classes.
In an alternate universe, the Knicks don’t have to trade and overpay for Stephon Marbury’s services. He was a tremendous passer and always made the proper play. Is there a more natural matchup for team and type of player in this draft than Collison and the Jazz? The Series continues here on The Sports Scientist.
After trading Stephen Jackson for Al Harrington, ATL needs his type of presence on a roster grossly undermanned on the wing. In 2003, post players were still valued, and Toronto needed a power forward, especially with Bosh now off the board. But who knows, maybe this time around the Raptors do a better job of surrounding Bosh with more pieces and he doesn’t leave. 14. Shooters shoot, and Kapono is an outstanding standstill shooter. West was an All-Star Forward in his prime that could stretch the floor and at times carry the load offensively. He’s skilled enough offensively that he could take advantage of weak defenders, but didn’t elevate his game enough to become a consistent starter. This is a solid and needed pick for a team that has missed so many over the past few years due to their shady salary cap situation. The Pistons could’ve won more than just the one Championship if they drafted Melo here. 3. As it stands, this is one of the most pivotal moments in NBA history.

The Wizards seemingly had the right idea when they drafted a wing player like Hayes. He never reached that ceiling as a pro, but the Atlanta native is good fit here for his hometown Hawks. LeBron did come back though after a four year stint with the Miami Heat and was able to deliver Cleveland it’s first Championship in 2016. The defense certainly suffers, but at least Calderon isn’t an offensive liability, too. Josh Howard was a good 2nd or 3rd option for a Championship caliber team in Dallas. Plus, sites like Bola88 would’ve loved to have fans scoreboard watch on their platform to see how well Milicic performed. Original pick: Ndudi Ebi, Westbury Christian HS. Kaman was a solid low-post presence that could defend and score. Hinrich certainly produced early on in his Career, and was a really good defender and solid Point Guard.

Of the three Oregon players drafted this year, he’s probably the least talented, but had the longest career by far.
Pietrus turned out to be a solid role player, but Barbosa with out a doubt, is the far superior player who could’ve put up big numbers if asked to take on a bigger role. A solid all-around contributor, Hinrich is capable of contributing at either guard role. Darko never lived up to it and collapsed.
Melo is no longer on the board for the Nuggets in this Re-Draft. Today we look back at the 2003 NBA Draft. In kind of a fun twist, the draft drops off pretty dramatically after the fourth spot. The Warriors really needed a Point Guard at the time. Korver can score whether he comes off the bench or starts. 13. This means there were arguably 22 better choices than Darko, including the likes of Luke Walton. He was a leader and floor general that didn’t always put up flashy numbers, or have a flashy game by any means, but it’s hard to argue with his production and results he produced in his prime. Ironically, Howard would end up playing for the Wizards (past his prime) anyway. Another NBA Re-Draft. Kaman played 13 seasons, averaged 11.2 points, 7.6 rebounds and made an All-Star team in 2009-10.

You can’t tell me a young core of Ray Allen, Rashard Lewis, Desmond Mason, Jose Calderon, and Darko Milicic doesn’t sound appealing. Beyond that, it was the largest pool of international players taken (a record-setting 31 declared) mixed in with an impressive group of seasoned, well-known college talents. The perfect player, staying home and turning the tides of one of the longest suffering franchises in NBA history.

Yes Bosh ended up leaving the Raptors. This is a great pick for the Knicks. He fits right into the post-Malone (nasty pun there, but here we are) and Stockton era for the Jazz.
He gives Phoenix another decision-maker that keeps the ball moving alongside Steve Nash.
Miami Heat: David West, PF, Xavier, Sr. West Original Draft Slot: New Orleans Hornets/Pelicans, 18th Overall. Calderon is one of those borderline All-Star talents that never actually made the All-Star team, but at times certainly felt, and played like an All-Star. As was the case with West, the 2003 ACC Player of the Year got knocked down being 22 years old instead of 19 or 20. Is there disappointment for the Heat here? However, he never made the next step to stardom, that the Nets believed he would after signing him to a $35 million deal in 2011. That’s really good Production. He’s no threat off the dribble, but teams still have to worry about him whenever he’s on the floor. A raw player like Milicic needed playing time to rough out the “kinks” in his game.
