MARTY BLAKE'S POST-DRAFT ANALYSIS:

"Jerry West told me they were taking Gooden. He has a high regard for Gooden's ability and if Jerry West thinks he can play, then the kid can play. Gooden is a very good basketball player. Jerry West did very well in getting a banger like Archibald. He's big, although he's not an enforcer. He's limited offensively in that he hasn't gotten enough shots, but that will change."
