I think Thompson is gonna pan out. He is definitely better than Tyrus. It'll be interesting to see what Val does in Toronto, though.

You guys passed up Valanciunas, maybe I'll eat my crow after we see him play this year but Valanciunas >>> Thompson by far. I don't think anyone is saying Thompson is some scrub who should be in the D-League and is a huge bust, but it was a mistake by passing up Valanciunas to get Thompson.

i feel the same about waiters, but zeller is great for us

we need a center who can shoot, since tristan cant make a thing outside the paint, and ontop of that can get you som buckets down low

i feel better about the waiter pick then i do about zeller...

cleveland must be very confident about him... jim boheim had some great comments on him as well.. said no one in the nba can guard him one on one unless their name is russell westbrook.

Stoked about getting a true Center.

Zeller/TT starting with AV off the bench as a swing PF/C 6th Man.

Not too thrilled that we went with an undersized shooting guard as our main pick, but we will have to wait and see how he does.

Overall I am not at all disappointed with this draft.

Zeller will be Z 2.0

Cunningham will probably end up being better than Waiters in the long term.

Zeller was ****ing stellar value, I was screaming for Bird to move up for him. Not sure I buy him as long term starter at the 5 but he's a perfect major minute 3rd big at either frontcourt spot.

Waiters was just ****ing dumb though.

I wasn't really dissing ya'll. Just that you guys do it differently, now either you guys or geniuses or not. Still, both Tristan and Waiters got picked by Cavs way too early with some high quality drafts available.

Thompson was 2nd Team All NBA Rookie Last Year. Now, it's not a badge of honor to carry around 2nd Team awards, but it's far from a flop. They drafted three things with Thompson: Energy, Defense, and Rebounding - and he was very good in all 3 areas.

Dion Waiters: Does anyone listen to Fran Frischella? He seems to have this inside niche on Foreign players and other "sleepers". When asked about Dion Waiters vs. Harrison Barnes, he said: "I'd draft Waiters and it's not even close." And he coached Barnes in some under 18 national competition. Jim Boeheim said hands down Waiters is the most talented player he has ever coached at Syracuse . He was rated as the best one on one talent in this draft and the player most likely to get to the basket in the entire draft. STRANGE SELECTION, no doubt - but this isn't a Darko pick.
