Editor's note: Monte Poole, Logan Murdock, Drew Shiller and Grant Liffmann participated in NBC Sports Bay Area's inaugural Warriors Ultimate Draft. All four chose squads from a 25-man pool of legends from the last 30 years, plus five "classic" players from before 1990.
No more waiting around. The time has come to crown the winner of the Warriors Ultimate Draft.
So we asked our very own Chris Mullin and Garry St. Jean -- two former Warriors general managers -- to choose the best team.
It turns out we have two champions:
Mullin: "Grant's team basically traded out Jason Richardson for Harrison Barnes. That's a championship team. They got the chemistry, they got the ball movement, they don't need to practice."
St. Jean: "I'm really intrigued about Monte's team -- there are plenty of people to get him (Mullin) the ball. That's what I like about that team. We better not forget, the guy who left to go to Washington was one heckuva player. I'm talking about Gilbert (Arenas). He's a wild card. Out of all these 24 guys, that guy there is unique."
Monte, who had the No. 4 overall selection, ended up with Mullin, Baron Davis, Latrell Sprewell, Nate Thurmond, Arenas and Billy Owens.
The reality is that Mully and Saint are wrong, because my squad -- Rick Barry, Wilt Chamberlain, Tim Hardaway, Andre Iguodala, Monta Ellis and Shaun Livingston -- would crush the competition (as long as we are playing under pre-1979-80 rules with no 3-point line).
