Default Is there anyone on ISH who approves of the Pacers choosing Miles Plumlee?

He blocked .9 shots per game and scored 6.6 points per game despite being a 7-footer that can jump higher than anyone.

If they wanted athleticism, why didn't they pick Moultrie who at least knows how to play basketball?

Is there anyone on ISH that honestly likes the Pacers' pick of Plumlee?

My face when the Pacers chose Plumlee:

The most underrated bad move of the draft.

It was kinda head scratching but at #26 it really doesn't matter.

I'm guessing they are looking for a tough big that will go hard/goon for 10-15 minutes(Hansbrough?) and he'll probably be a better contributer to the team than someone else who will probably be buried on the bench.

Pacers drafted a white guy.

Larry Bird was on a hot streak and he ended it with a major dud.

I wouldn't have approved of anyone taking him even as an undrafted FA. Dude is not a good player.

playing devil's advocate, why not take a chance on a huge, athletic center? it was the late first round, not like there was a ton of talent left on the board. he might develop into a good rebounder who can bang with dudes down low

pretty much this. If they can get a 10-15 solid minutes a night from him where he's hustling, banging down low, rebounding, etc, than it's a good pick.

Unless you get lucky and draft a gem most of those guys around that pick aren't going to be anything special. No sleep will be lost.
