The Cavs spent the entire draft trying to get back into the lottery, the Zeller deal was, at best, a fall-back.
And if you take T-Rob you trade up for SOMEONE THAT PLAYS A DIFFERENT POSITION.
Dallas made that trade to shed cap money for their D-Will pursuit. They saved around 1.3 million last night thanks to the trade.
And this team is not good enough to pass on the best prospect on the board (by a good bit) in T-Rob to protect Tristan Fucking Thompson.
Pretend I'm not Pros and know that I hate the picks of TT & Waiters.
Sell me on the panic angle without brow beating me. Sadly, I see a conceieved plan that came to fruition. Why?
- Waiters meets the profile of Dunphy picks
- Grant says he did more due dilligence on this player than he ever did on any other player via Boeheim well in advance of all the post-season scouting stuff.
- A vet NBA draft pro and panic seems like a cartoonish charaterization that Gary Reents taught me a long, long time ago is a pretty fantastic scenario.
The only thing worse than panic induced suck is planful suck.
