Ha, it wasn't just the Toronto media. It was here as well and i recall some saying he looked too skinny and frail and that he'd get killed in the NBA. Don't remember who that was but i remember reading that here. And a couple people brought him up with most not really that interested in us picking him. I knew nothing about him really and pretty much dismissed him because it appeared a foregone conclusion that we'd pick Walker or Knight....so it seemed.
