If we were to trade for another pick around #8 then i wouldn't have a problem, but i wouldn't our ONE pick on him. And who has ever said he's the best defender in the draft?
Too short? Like Trane said, he has a 7'7'' wingspan. This guy has a motor that never stops, he does everything you can possibly want on the defensive end. With a guy like Casey coaching him it'll be great for his development as a defensive player. Height doesn't mean anything especially if you have a 7'7'' wingspan. If you think being 7 feet makes you automatically great then you are mistaken. Bismack would torch Bargnani in the paint. I have never seen Bargnani hustle defensively in his entire career, and Bismack is doing it at 18. Hating Bismack is nonsensical as he can be an incredible player in this league.
