Yes, I think that's an amazing draft, considering he got Labissere, Papagiannis, and Bogdanovic.

I can tell you that for sure, the NBA tends to in general, greatly overrate the level of Spanish players. I'm not saying that is the case with him, because I have not watched him play enough to judge, but it's something to always keep in mind every time the NBA drafts a player from Spain.

NBA overrates players from Spain, more than any other international country.

I like Papa-G. How did he go so far under the radar pre-draft? His scouting vids are awesome. If he gets some defensive fundamentals down and puts on some muscle, what do you think his potential is?

Because of racism. Just look at the threads I posted here about him. Endless and nonstop racism. If a player from USA was posted about, people would consider him.

If it's a Greek player, automatically they get discredited.

This is especially true of those mock draft sites, that are racist against all Greek players.

Spanoulis said he openly dealt with racism in the NBA and that they purposely sabotaged his career, yet not one thing was done about it.

If a black American player said something like that, there would have been a congressional investigation probably.

Just look at the reaction on social media to Papagiannis being drafted, racist comments all around.

It's the same reason obviously why Porzingis was booed and attacked by Knicks fans after he was drafted.

USA is the most racist place in the world, and probably in all of history. Someone from Greece, that is white and plays basketball (in USA culture "only blacks can play basketball") and has a "weird name" is automatically going to be dealing with racism in USA.

As for putting on some muscle, I don't think he needs to gain more weight. That 240 listing is bogus and was from when he was 16 years old. He weighs 278 now, according to the last time he was weighed.

He does not need to keep getting bigger, or he will lose his mobility. 7-2 278 with a 7-6 wingspan is already super massive as it is.

For years dude kept saying Pagiana was going #1 in this draft to anyone that would listen. Now that he hasn't, we are seeing the subsequent meltdown.

lol, no meltdown. I agree - airhead NBA fans are definitely anti-euro for some f*cking retarded reason.

But dang, didn't realize Papa-G was already jocked so hard by Euroleague. And yeah, maybe "weight" wasn't the right term, but just overall physique. he seems like he needs to tone up a bit, not bulk up.

Either way, I'm excited. Hopefully Cousins get traded before season starts so Papa-G can get more mins this season.
