    bro I seen one of his where he had alabi going in the 20's
    Alabi was considered a late lottery pick until teams found out that he had Hep-B which explained why so many teams passed on him. That wasnt Chad's Ford fault, he had no idea that would happen.

    What was even more surprising was how far Hassan Whiteside fell, I htink at one point they had him going to us at 13!

    I like Whiteside, if there's ever a trade with the Kings for Thompson or something, I wouldn't mind Whiteside being thrown in there. His defense is heaps better than Bargnani, and he has huge arms.

    Whiteside's a tease. He's got the tools to be a very good NBA player, but he's got Benoit Benjamin syndrome.

    phili pepa in toronto:
    im still not sold on raptors selecting jonas. How would yu rate tha pick and what do tha raptors really expect from him?

    Joel Brigham:
    They should expect him to be the perennial All-Star that they build around for the next ten years. He's going to be fantastic. Best pick the Raptors could've made there, and I don't think fans are going to be disappointed at all. Give it just a little bit of time, but within three years you're going to see serious returns on that particular investment. He'll be the best player from this 2011 draft.

    Big praise for Jonas. Granted it is one person's opinion and earlier in the chat he said DD would average 12-15ppg for the majority of his career.
