First, Springfield. We were intrigued by the Armor's selection of Chris Taft, who's overcome not just injuries, but also a muscular condition.

For Armor (Nets?) Big Prize Is Taft

In the summer before the 2004-2005 season, many thought Chris Taft of Pitt was the likely choice for the overall #1 pick in the June Draft.
