    Haha sorry but Pistons never gun make a big their No 1 or No 2 pick after Darko anytime soon.

    They have been burned bad.

    It is also great that Scottie Barnes, Franz Wagner are playing well. Testament that later picks could be great too.

    Dark horses are way more interesting.

    The problem is that Mobley is never on the floor due to his brittle frame and high ass causing constant nagging injuries.

    Yeah people were making that argument because they claimed he had no offensive game.

    No, nobody said that exactly but plenty of people said he could never be impactful as a # 2 should be or that he could not play with Wood because.

    The arguments were definitely that outlandish let's not trying and claim it was just about preference, you got people still arguing that he should not have been the pick because of Alpy so that's people still making the "playable" argument.

    That's just false.

    No actual draft insiders who get paid for content said that and most of the ones who get paid ranked Mobley over Green.

    The same people were talking about how skinny Green was as well and needs that 15 to 20 as well, its definitely up for debate.
