It was crazy how much hype was going to Kemba and Knight, both of which seem to be decent if not yet very good players, but I was happy with the idea that Colangelo went off the cuff to take the best available talent in the draft after he'd been passed over despite not knowing too much about him. It never hurts to draft seven footers with skill, always better to miss with size if you're going to miss.

To be honest, I kind of took pleasure in them drafting 'another euro' just because I knew it would create a groundswell of distaste.... give us something to argue incessantly over!
