MARTY BLAKE'S POST-DRAFT ANALYSIS:

"The Wizards are a bad team who have gotten better. Kwame Brown is much better than Rashard Lewis was coming out of high school. I thought it would take Lewis 3-4 years and he started in his second year. Brown may be the best all-around player in the Draft. He’s going to be an outstanding player and since he is likely to start, he’ll have a chance to produce right away. Some people don’t understand this guy is 6-foot-11 and multi-talented.

"I hope Michael can play and Charles can play. They've got a guy from Dallas who can play guard, Corey Alexander. He can score. Then Michael's got to decide. There are a lot of free agents out there who weren't drafted."
