chuck D said it best... Don't believe the hype.

You read so much shit on mock drafts, articles, media releases..... its all speculative shit to make people pay attention.

The draft sucked.
The pg's were average.
Ours is already better.

The best bigs were gone.... so we Jonas. I can dig it.

wait till July 1rst, everything will feel better then, and will all become clear.

Yeah, dude, i don't need to be sold. Jay Bilas already sold me.

I found the Cavs' fans reaction interesting for 2 reasons:

1 - I figured the Cavs desperately want to win right away, even moreso than Raps' fans. So I was impressed that some of them would have the patience required to back the decision to draft Jonas.

2 - It's funny. No matter who you draft, there will almost always be some pissed off fans. It's further confirmation.

Congrats Tristan Thompson! I remember playing D'youville in a tournament in Pennsylvania a few years back. He's come a very long way since then. Highest drafted Canadian ever! So awesome

i wouldnt be surprised if it were the comparisons to Z that had the cavs fans wishing for him.

also,

congrats to the canadian kids. both landed in excellent spots to showcase their talents.

I'm watching the replay now..... and I LOL'd hard when the reporter asked that question. Idiot.

I wish the kid well.... I really like his personality and he seems like he's going to be a fan favourite.

Maybe if we're lucky this MIGHT be a guy who'll consider signing with us as a FA down the road? BEFORE he's on his last legs? lol.

So what if it's smaller? It's where the kid is from. A city within a city? Brampton doesn't even border toronto.
Cuz if he said Brampton all them dumbass people from New jersey would have been like "WTF?"
