If the kid ends up even half as good as kd, it will be worth it at #20.

Have some faith people, Masai isn't a stupid GM, he was a pro scout many years before he was GM, he knows what hes doing.

To all of those who assume that Bruno would've been there at 37 or 59, tell me, how do you know? Because of mock drafts? Seriously? That's your thought process? Do you really think Masai is that out of touch with reality after so many of you were drooling over his moves in year 1 ?

Get real. Be patient for once in your fanhoods.
I love this post. Sums it up perfectly for me.

Could very well be true.... looks like a Spurs pick. Thing is.... Masai will have to prove that his staff can develop a young player like the Spurs can (and have).

Unless this is just a pick for some other team...

It's surprising though. I thought that we'd go for a player who was able to contribute right away considering the current state of our team.

Haha, my thought exactly. Like most, I'm shocked by the pick, but can't say anything because I know nothing on the kid. I'll trust MU with this one, of course.

I didn't. That would be stupid and shortsighted. I wanted the BPA, and if this guy is the best of the available players, he's the right pick. We'll see, I know next to nothing about him, but I completely disagree with what you said there.

He was 17 playing against men. Regardless of the league, a 17 year old playing against men generally won't fair well.

I'm hoping this IS the Spurs pick and they're picking for us at # 30.
