    Not liking his expression, but if he is pissed hopefully that translate him to work harder. I think the Magic did him dirty because I think they weren't up front with him. Magic will have to delete the Jabari Smith workout youtube video.

    At first, no - wanted Chet or Paulo, as I think they have a higher "The Guy" ceiling.

    However, Jabari fits better, he is a very good 3 and D player - and will fit nicely with Green and KPJ on pitch outs, and he will play well with Sengun too.

    So overall we got better.

    Yeah he 100% thought he was going #1 to Orlando. Hope this gives him even more motivation. He seems pissed.

    If 4 months ago with all the uncertainty on where we'd finish, where'd we pick, and how all the chips would fall...if you said we'd end up with Jabari Smith...who would be disappointed? Who???
