Lots of surprise I didn't take Ewing. Honestly, I've never been a fan. I likely don't give him enough credit, but I'm usually looking for "cleaner" big men with bigger boards than that. I probably had my best chance ever to take him here with Rodman on board, but I was focused in on Amar'e and Dirk after picking Manu.
I will defend Dirk over him, though. Admittedly Dirk has 2% lower efg% and 30+ lower defense, along with hardly any blocks. But rebounds are about equal, and Dirk has substantially more assists, much lower fouls and TOs, and his FT shooting makes up for some of the efg% gap. With Marshall and Rodman on board I really didn't need more fouls in the frontcourt. Hopefully, their 86/90 D will be enough to cover for Dirk. The big problem is, picking in this part of the draft means slim pickings in the 6th. May not be able to fill out my bench the way I want/need to.
