The media, coaches, players will be at him. Lets see how he handles it.

Darko was hyped up as the euro KG. And now he is nothing more than a servicable big man (backup center). You gotta be mentally and emotionally prepared to deliver. Hopefully this dude can do that in Houston or he might be on a plane ticket back home.

Motiejunas is far more talented, he plays for one of the best teams in Europe and he's faced better opponents than any other player in the draft..
