Surprised the Lakers took Russell. Mitch is gambling. He'll either be great or mediocre.
I don't see it, especially at #2. There are 5 guys like him in every draft, I see nothing that makes him stand out. Other than Wiggins, there isn't a single guy in last year's draft that looks a real prospect with a similar skill set.
I agree with above. LAL has luxury of attracting FAs, so they may be banking on that.
I fooled a bunch of my Knick fan friends by saying: did you hear the knicks chose the white guy?! at 6:00pm, when we were all hanging out after a softball practice.
They were all white and their reverse bigotry (disgusted/dejected faces) against their euro/caucasian brethren was hilarious. When the actual draft started and the knicks ended choosing Darko 2.0, I had to turn off my phone from the pissed off texts.
I do hope that darko 2.0 and kamisky end up being awesome though...
