Poll: 2003 NBA Draft Take Two (Pick No. 4)

Drafting players is far from an exact science, and many a GM has been second-guessed for his draft night decisions. I’m willing to bet that every team executive has at least one pick that he would like a mulligan for. While life, and the NBA, doesn’t allow for such opportunities, we at Hoops Rumors decided it would be fun to give our readers a second take at picking players, complete with the benefit of hindsight.

We are in the process of taking you on a journey back to June of 2003, and revisiting a draft that saw the likes of LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony, Dwyane Wade, and Chris Bosh available to potentially change the fortunes of a few struggling franchises. Wade was the first of that group to win an NBA championship, though James and Bosh would later join him in Miami and go on to win multiple titles together years later, while Melo is still seeking his first trip to the NBA Finals. Detroit, which owned the No. 2 overall pick that season, chose to go with Darko Milicic, who didn’t work out so well for the Pistons. Not all picks pan out, but that one is especially painful given the talent that the Pistons passed over to select the big man, who owns career averages of 6.0 points and 4.2 rebounds, and has been out of the NBA since making a single appearance for the Celtics back in 2012/13.

We continue our revisionist history with the Raptors, who used the No. 4 overall pick to select Bosh, who still happens to be available in our draft. Readers, you are now on the clock! Cast your vote for Toronto’s pick and check back Thursday night for the results, as well as to cast your vote for who the Heat will select with the No. 5 overall pick with Wade already off the board. But don’t limit yourself to a simple button click. Take to the comments section below and share your thoughts on the No. 4 overall pick and why you voted the way that you did.

One thought on “Poll: 2003 NBA Draft Take Two (Pick No. 4)

  1. Chuck Myron

    The fact that three out of the top four picks in the draft could go the same way more than 12 years later is remarkable. It also speaks to the colossal mistake the Pistons made with Darko.

    And it’s odd how Bosh has become even more of a clear-cut choice for the Raptors with this pick since he left Toronto.
