Wayne Embry pulled the trigger on the groundwork that was already in place.
The Haffa pick was a no-win scenario. At that point we didn't know what a bitch VC was going to be and we needed a C desperately. The scouting staff backed that pick after doing weeks of workouts and months of legwork. Babcock came in right before the draft and went with the pick. Hard to fault him for that unless you're using hindsight.
VC fucked this team far more than Babcock ever did.
