My thoughts on the draft will come a little later, but they were pretty much laid out on the Interview with DJ last night(that aired on T.V) and flushed out even more on the DJ and PK show this morning when I called in to rebuttal PK.
I don't like the pick at all and can't believe we waited six years for this pick. I compared the pick to a honeymoon night and yes I do understand that Dj and PK were making fun of me. I don't care. I realize what good radio is and was fine with. At the 55 pick you have a 7 footer who played for arguable the best college coach of all time, who plays defense and can rebound, why not take a shot he is pick number 55.
I know we have to wait and see, but as I said, we waited six years for this, this.
Here are Bill Simmons thoughts on this pick- 5:24:
Utah picks NCAA near-legend Gordon Hayward ninth. He was two inches away from being the real Jimmy Chitwood. I loved everything about that pick: Made sense for the Jazz (they needed a perimeter scorer); I can make Utah/white guy jokes about it (what's better than Utah stealing the best available white guy from Indiana?); and, by the way, if you don't think Hayward is going to cause a riot among Utah women, you don't know Utah well enough. They may as well have drafted Zac Efron and converted him to Mormonism.
