Do you mean the World Champion Detroit Pistons?
The same World Champion Detroit Pistons who missed out on sweeping the big, bad, highly favored LA Fakers only because of a chuck and a prayer in game 2?
The same World Champion Detroit Pistons who have gotten BETTER this offseason? How about a fully healthy Antonio McDyess and Derrick Coleman backing up 'Sheed and Ben - is there a better frontcourt in the NBA?

PFFFFF - wishful thinking. Melo is the man, but KMart and Camby??? not a chance. We will see how good KMart is without Kidd. Camby on the other hand -what a pleasant suprise he was for me and others who had him last yr, huh? I dont think he stays healthy for another full season, but its possible. How deep is DEN's bench?

WHat do you guys think of Marion this year? Late first round selection? I know he's a stat filler but im worried about the effect the improved roster will have on his numbers.

AK47 is in a similar situation, with the addition of Boozer and Okur, I think his rebound numbers may still take a hit, but other than that he should remain as valuable as last year.

Your thoughts?

Good point :-D

And aussie boy...I've only done basketball for one year so I don't really know too much about draft positions for certain players. Kirilenko should still be great, even with less rebs he's still awesome all-around. I've never really liked Marion, although he's undeniably good and is probably still worth a 1st rounder...Sorry I couldn't be of more use.

Any places out there with mock drafts available to see/do?

I'm a huge BBall fan, I know almost as much if not more about BBall than I do about football. This is just another plan of Arlo's to make me spend all of my time at his sites.

If there are any good sites for fantasy basketball up with info and possibly mock drafts could someone direct me to it?

I've never done fantasy bball before and although I might skip on it this year a site to look at before the "gray side" is operational.
