i said i didn't want to get into whether he was a bust or not, but i said he definitely is not top 3
he then says Bargs is top 3 if u consider those that were top 10 picks or legitly considered to be top picks (leaving out millsap and rondo)
so basically what i was saying is, if thats all ur considering then ya he's top 3 cuz basically there was only 3
fair enough... he's not top 3... but he's top 3 of what should be reasonable to expect...

Anytime you can claim a top 5 player out of any draft, it should be deemed a success. Nitpicking is useless in discussing a crapshoot. It's like saying Bosh was a bust because Wade went after him.
