I liked Luke Babbitt in college and think he could end up being a good pro, maybe similar to Toni Kukoc. But Ive soured on him after I read the Grizzlies are really high on him
Demarre Caroll isnt that bad man, sounds like someone is holding on to some Tiger hate after he basically single-handedly knocked the Tigers out of the tourney
Mike Conley is as soft as ever. The kid can still dribble though too bad he cant pass
Marc is a Center. Shows how little you know about basketball. He isnt fast enough to compete with the true power forwards. Also I think its funny how everyone talks about our terrible defense( I agree it is terrible) but we had the 2nd worst offense in the league and so know we drafted a center that has no offense at all and wont be able to sit in the paint like in college b/c the NBA has a 3 second rule.
Sorry I meant to direct that last comment @ EJ. I looked at the names wrong.
Thabeet = End of Grizzlies
Dražen Petrović never made an All-star game but he is in the Hall of Fame. But all of the Spanish NBA guys have been fairly successful some more than others obviously.
But saying that you shouldnt taken certain players b/c other Euro guys have been busts is just silly. How many American guys have been busts? If you are going to use that same logic then Derrick Rose shouldnt have been taken #1 b/c all the previous guards under Cal at Memphis have been busts in the NBA.
Also Thabeet is not an option at 2. Its not even a topic of discussion, and if Heisley takes him then he will see how much Memphians care about the Grizzlies when nobody shows up to a single game all season.
