We would have had the one scorer we have been lacking if we had gotten any of those players & most likely would have already made the playoffs by now!

2003 Draft:

#3 - N. Horton(FLA)

#24 - M. Richards(PHI)
#25 - A. Stewart(FLA)
#26 - B. Boyle(LA)
#27 - J. Tambellini(LA)
#28 - C. Perry(ANA)
#29 - P. Eaves(OTT)
There's just one flaw with your theory: back in 2003, nobody knew any of that. No one knew Stewart would be on the verge of being a bust by the end of the 2007-2008 season - after all, he looked like a character guy who had offensive upside and was a solid powerforward pick. And remember, Dudley picked him because Keenan wanted him. Same with Horton. None of those others are Keenan types.
