Paul George instead of Johnson they would be considerably farther than they are now, and that's not even seeing how that would affect their 2011 pick. They could have very possibly have George/Valanciunas instead of two guys who are already busts. Rubio/George/Kirilenko/Love/Valanciunas seems like it would be a damn good line-up for the next 3-4 years. (Even though Pek is farther ahead of JV right now)
Well to the Timberwolves' credit Derrick Williams was considered a lock at #2. There was also rumblings of him even stealing Irving's top spot. He isn't considered a bust yet either. The guy just doesn't play because with the exception of Rubio(who they have to play), Adelman favours older, more veteran players. Hell I'd take him on the Raps over 1/4 of our guys atleast. The last game he started(in replace for Kevin Love) he had 23 points, 7 rebounds and 4 blocks. The next game he didn't even PLAY.
