    Battle of the NBA Mega-Drafts

    In recent years, the NBA has had two drafts that are head and shoulders above any other in recent memory: 1996 and 2003. Which team, comprised of players taken in these drafts, would prevail? (Assume all players are healthy and in their prime)

    2003 Roster

    C: Chris Kaman
    PF: Chris Bosh, David West
    SF: LeBron James, Carmello Anthony, Josh Howard
    SG: Dwyane Wade, Mickael Pietrus, James Jones
    PG: T.J. Ford, Kirk Hinrich, Steve Blake

    1996 Roster

    C: Jermaine O'Neal, Zydrunas Ilgauskas
    PF: Antoine Walker, Marcus Camby
    SF: Kobe Bryant, Malik Rose
    SG: Ray Allen, Predrag Stojacovic, Kerry Kittles
    PG: Alan Iverson, Steve Nash, Stephon Marbury

    Analysis:

    The 2003 Squad has some excellent active rebounders in Kaman, Bosh and West. The 1996 Squad has more true post-up players. Kobe and LeBron are pretty much a wash, but Anthony and Howard give 2003 better depth at the position. Wade can't be guarded by any of the 1996 guards, but the 1996 has much better 3 point shooting with Allen, Stojacovic, Kittles and Iverson. PG is where 1996 has its biggest edge.

    Outcome: 1996 defeats 2003 4 games to 3 (as much as it pains me to say so as a big Wade/Miami Heat fan)

    Both sides are fairly even except for the PG position as you stated. I do think Wade could play PG in a pinch and play it well.

    Definitely a 7 game series with game 7 going into triple O.T...

    Flip a coin in my opinion.
