Also, can you imagine what his offense would have looked like had Keith Smart given him a solid green light on any open shot at the beginning of the season like he did with the rest of our players?
Fact, unless something drastically changes, we probably screwed both those picks up.
Harrison Barnes was the pick we should have gone for not T-Rob, he has potential and is the perfect fit we needed at the SF.
Drummond was the pick. Played the same poisition as the guy we picked, except his skill package was much more aligned with what we should ahve been looking for, and his body/athleticism was a impressive as anybody had seen. We had him in for workouts. There simply is no excuse for missing on him given all that other than that you just simply missed and went for the name instead.
I would love to resort to the "what's done is done" foxhole on this one, but its oen fo several moves or nonmoves in recent years that have deeply hurt me. I could see a Cousins/Drummond frontline, could see what that could have meant for a very very long time. It all fell into place draft night, all you gotta do is call the name into Stern...and we won't ever get that opportunity again. One last too small "big" on your way out the door, eh Geoff? Ignore the long shotblocker one last time for old time's sake? Idiot.
