I think I'll exercise my perogative not to agree with them.  Bias was what
6 foot 8 and 240 or so?  Sounds like a power forward to me.  As to the
Celtics drafting him instead of a center, what center should they've
picked?  William Bedford?  Chris Washburn?  Brad Daugherty would've been a
better choice, but he went #1.  Besides, they were presumably worried
about Wedman recovering from his playoff injury (with good reason, it
seems).  I think they would have used him to back up both Bird and McHale,
and that he would've would wound up starting when Bird went down with his
heel problems.
