    The others are good picks, but Taylor was a ridiculous bad pick.

    Jeff Withey was one of the top defenders in college basketball.

    Joey Dorsey sucked ass too, I'm glad he found an inferior league to show off his mediocre talent...

    That's funny, because he had better numbers in the NBA than he did in Euroleague. He also lasted much longer in the NBA than he did in Euroleague........

    Oh wait, right, you meant the "inferior league"

    :rolleyes:

    Let's hope Morey does well again, it's time to find another gem and please no undersized PF who thinks he's a SF or the other way around. That means no more Morris types. Also, no more undersized fake centers who cannot play PF like Dorsey. Lastly, please no more guys with character issues like White. I want guys who can play defense and still improve shooting like Landry or Parsons.

    Odd, considering he had his best season in 2011-2012.

    Let me clarify. I think Jeff Withey WILL BE a nobody in the NBA. I think of Mitch McGary putting 25 on him in their loss to Michigan in the tourney.
    Meanwhile, Withey only had 12.

    But you and others could be right about his NBA future. I could be wrong.

    I just see a big white guy coming into the league and not having much of a future.

    Aaron Gray had a good run at Pitt. There were high hopes for him. And now? Flat on his face.

    And I CANNOT HELP comparing him to Cole Aldrich. I know people say 'well, Withey's way more athletic.'


    We'll see. Let's just hope he's not in a Rockets uniform when we see it.

    I think in Withey's case, his age will help and hurt him. Being 23 and a four year player will help him contribute early, but will probably drop him into the 2nd round.

    Aaron Gray, like Cole Aldrich, is not the same type of center as Jeff Withey. Gray is a big, plodding center. That's not Withey. He's mobile.

    Like I said, lazy comparison based on height, years of college experience, and race. You're counter to being told Withey is more athletic than Aldrich was to bring up Aaron Gray, another slow center that doesn't compare to Withey. You don't have an argument, and it'd be better if you just admitted that and said you just don't think Withey will pan out.

    I'm still pushing for Rice. He won't be there at 34 though.

    Withey will have to hit the weight room for sure. Love the Dieng kid from Louisville, very mobile and perfect for an uptempo team. Bigs take several years to develop once they come into the league, McHale would be perfect scenario to draft an athletic big.

    I'm all about Mark Lyons at 34, but if we got offered a top 15 for Robinson, we'd be foolish to not take Adetokunbo.

    This. I think what he was good at in college will not translate well over to the NBA to be an effective center.

    False and untrue. He had his beat season in 2012-13 in the Turkish League. TURKISH League, not Euroleague.

    He was cut twice in the Euroleague. He was cut by both of his Euroleague teams.

    There is absolutely no way in hell that Antetokounmpo (the actual spelling) is not going in the first round. He's being projected as high as 8-13 right now.
