What's up, everyone? It's pat here e from Yard Barker And today we're talking about a draft, a blunder for the ages.
In light of Luca Dodge, ex sop****re year ascension and DeAndre in suspension for using P D masking diuretics, it's time to address the elephant in the room.
Are we going to remember Aidan over Don Chick in the same way we remember Buoy over Jordan and Dark Over Carmelo and over and over Durant, your most Suns fans.
But the answer is yes.
While date while 18 may not be a total bust like Dr Melchers Waas or have his career derailed by injuries like Sam Buoy or Greg Oden, the sons will rue the day that they passed on such an obvious superstar talent for a big man whose game was better suited for the 19 nineties.
Let's travel back to the summer of 2018 for a second when the sun's in the number one overall draft choice.
Don check a basketball genius with prestigious feel for the game and a flair for the dramatic had just kept off a season for the ages.
In second best basketball league in the world, the Euro League.
He became the youngest player to win the MVP of the league and let Reality Madrid to a championship, where he was also named to your league's Final Four.
He did this all is an 18 year old.
The debate about the top pick in the 2018 eh? NBA draft should have started and ended right then and there before, whatever reason, it didn't.
Instead, the Sun selected 18 who had just completed a solid, albeit scandalous, season for an Arizona team under well, despite having three future N B A players on its roster.
Eight hand, eh? NBA size and athleticism but never displayed the shooting touch.
We're in protection chops that most of today's elite en bas enters possess.
The choice was even more puzzling given the fact that the sons had recently hired Lucas Slovenian national team coach core Kako Skov to be their head coach.
Sons that insult injury by firing could coast cough after only one season, despite saddling him with aged 18 instead of dodging passing on Luca Don Chick never made any sense for the sons, but I guess that's why the sons can't have nice things
