Compete with Lowry possibly leaving? You need to see the bigger picture. We have no franchise player and drafted the best player available (durant 2.0).
People said the same thing about JV and was freaking out over that pick, how did that turn out? Would people be happier with drafting the "sexy pick" in austin rivers? For the time being, yes. Overall, no.
