when they passed on him and grabbed Tristan, BC probably couldnt believe it and jumped to grab him.
i have a feeling JV was number one on BC's list, with Knight being second... and when JV became available, BC was all over him.

i must admit i was upset initially, but i like what im hearing and seeing.... if we are going the Defensive route, this kid may be exactly what we need.
its just a little tough for some raps fans to swallow, seeing how our first euro pick is panning out. hopefully this time will be different.
i think it will be.
It's too bad Aleksandar Radojević just couldn't get healthy.

That's who you're talking about, right?
