People had concerns about Dwill being able to control his weight. He actually worked REALLY hard in the summer of his draft and came into camp in great shape... and to his credit he's stayed that way.

CP3 dropping was just stupid. He was being compared to Isiah Thomas even when he was in college. ATL made a MASSIVE mistake passing on him for a guy (Marvin Williams) who wasn't even good enough to START for his team at the time. Just a huge blunder.
