    Pops Exum looks a lot like Luther Vandross, too.

    The average is about 14 being over 20 minutes.

    What is your definition of it then? You seemed to say a 15 minute player wouldn't qualify as such. I disagree completely. By that barometer, only 35 qualified centers were NBA players last year. Heck Omer Asik only played about 20 per game. Of course situation plays a big role.

    I'm not sure why it is a big deal though. It is pretty accepted that he could fill a backup role and be solid, but has limited to no upside beyond that.

    So now you don't even think Young can play 10mpg as a rookie? Yet he's "NBA ready" in your opinion?

    Yeah, clearly we have very different definitions of the term.

    Hate to say it but i think i might be a Jazz fan after this draft. They have an exciting young group. Same with Orlando.

    I thought they're gonna trade Lin? BTW, nice draft picks. I really like the 2nd rounders.

    I didn't say that. He is ready to be a backup at the C position right now. That means playing about 15 mpg. His role will mostly be determined by his team.

    You obviously are very heated about this but you can't seem to define what you mean or acknowledge that define it much higher means you are generally excluding the term to far less than 1 rookie per team.

    Okay. Now it's clear you are trolling now.
