Great story I heard yesterday that pretty much sums up how I feel about the draft.
Before the 1984 Draft, Bobby Knight called up the Portland Trailblazers GM (who was a friend of his) and the following conversation ensued.
Knight: "I had this Michael Jordan kid when I was coaching Team USA, and he's the real deal. You should draft him."
Blazers GM: "I drafted Clyde Drexler last year, I need a Center."
Knight: (irritated) "THEN DRAFT MICHAEL JORDAN AND PLAY HIM AT CENTER!"
