Look, the NBA Draft is a diligent process. Teams don't just show up and pick a name out of a hat. There is months and months of scouting involved, of getting to know each and every player. When it all came down to it, our scouts didn't think Drummond was the right pick. Maybe they're right, maybe they're wrong, but I think I'll trust an NBA scout over some messageboard GM's anyday.
And for those of you who are crying over Drummond, I've got two words for you: Jonas Valanciunas.
NBA GMs make mistakes all the time... that's how guys like Carlos Boozer, Paul Milsap and Michael Redd end up going in the second round.
And I like JV quite a bit.... but I'd have liked Drummond and JV A LOT more....
