The 2001 Ridiculous Upside REDRAFT: #1

This is the season of our inactivity.  We are doomed by September to a life of boredom and pre-training camps. So we rounded up the rest of the SBNation homeys and some others, and we're ReDrafting the 2001 NBA Draft. Up first? The Washington Wizards after their original pick of who else? Kwame Brown.

With the first pick in the 2001 SB Nation NBA ReDraft, the Washington Wizards, represented by Bullets Forever, select Gilbert Arenas from the University of Arizona.

Bullets Forever says: We believe Gilbert would be a major asset to our team and are not concerned with his ability to play point guard because our offense does not specialize positions as much.


Judging from the success we've had with Arenas these past few years, it was a no-brainer.  Pau Gasol would look nice posting up, but Arenas is too good a scorer to pass up.

 

The Los Angeles Clippers, represented by Clips Nation, are on the clock.
