    not expecting him to ever play in the league and wish we used that pick on machado, who might be able to play in the league. would have saved a little bit of money on a third stringer if he had of made the team and could have learnt from jose before he leaves.

    i think we drafted him because no one would buy the pick and we had to use it.
    The problem with that theory is that there will be a hundred Machado's that you can choose from on a yearly basis from the NCAA, D League or Europe etc. but a 7 footer who can shoot and handle the ball like a 3 is far more desirable a risk. He may never amout to anything in the NBA, but just look at Sundiata Gaines, Mike James, John Lucas III, there are a lot of them out there.

    For what its worth, I agree with you. Many detractors will likely point to Isaiah Thomas at 60 last year. Personally, I think it further supports the theory even the first round can be a crap shoot and the 2nd round - especially late - is a lottery ticket.

    Exactly.

    I hated when people were saying "oh it's a deep draft" before the draft and then using a mock draft to support their arguments that Ross was a reach after it.

    agreed. I like Machado's game and thought that the Raps could have taken a chance on him. But if I had a choice between taking a flyer on an undersized third string point guard or a 7 footer with shooting range and decent handles and athleticism, I am going for the 7 footer every time.

    Default Tomislav Zubcic vs Jonas Valanciunas

    Yeah, it's pretty long. Tomislav comes in at the 29:30 mark and Jonas starts. They both on the at the 30:11 mark for the first time. In Tomislav first stink on the court you get to see him push the ball up the court on the break. His handle is superb for a 7footer. He would definitely give DeMar a run for his money. It was pretty impressive! In 8 minutes he had a stat line of 7 pts 2rebs 2 ast all in the 2nd Q(Didn't play first Q)

    Teach him to pump fake a bunch of times and you'll have the second coming of Bargnani


    EDIT: Also, is this a Euro-thing?
