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?
Like I said in the other thread when you called him short, he's not. He has the longest wingspan in the NBA (I believe, if not, he's top 2) and he has the tallest standing reach in the NBA (9ft 3" (or 4")). On top of that he is EXTREMELY explosive. As other have said his measurables are through the roof and are one of the best of all time.
