Bosh was getting mutilated down low as a young kid trying to play C.
Everyone wants to say that Iggy was a "no brainer" but we had Vince, Jalen and Mo Pete at the wing spots.
We needed a big man.
Haffa went to a decent school and had some big games against OTHER big programs. He had an NBA-ready body and was capable of banging with the biggest guys in the league (which he did).
I remember him playing very well against guys like Zach and Brand... guys who just toyed with our bigs otherwise.
Araujo, like Babcock, will continue to be a scapegoat and take the blame when it really should be placed on Vince. Him demanding a trade is what REALLY set our franchise back years.
pick was another one.
