Default Re: 2011 NBA Draft

Jazz general manager Kevin O’Connor talked about what he’s looking for and how he plans to evaluate prospects.
Asked about drafting players based on availability versus need, O'Connor replied:
“Just always go back to the Michael Jordan rule."
O'Connor was referring to Portland's ill-fated decision to select Sam Bowie over Michael Jordan in the 1984 draft.
O'Connor also indicated that position would have no bearing on his decision.

Easy to say when u need help everywhere. We can only hope they fill that hole at the 4 though.
