the nike hoops summit brought his attention to us, it doesn't mean that all the NBA scouts in europe had no idea who this kid is.
him being drafted 20th any other year means nothing considering how he fairs in this years draft. do you think leonard would be a lottery pick any other year? he was borderline with barnes, sullinger and the jones kids in the draft and that was still considered a weak draft.
