Reports leading up to the draft weren't very good... So, I'd question that reporters, all of a sudden, have a solid source within either camp. Almost all reporters had Charlotte taking Robinson if they stayed at 2. I don't think I saw a single mock draft leading up to this thing that had MKG going No. 2. Seems to me like no one had any idea what was going on in this thing. After they picked MKG, Charlotte said that there was never anything close to a deal with Cleveland.
And, anyway, we need to see how these guys pan out before we call this Waiters pick a bad one... I try not to get too high or too low on draft night. Waiters looks like a beast getting to the rack and he averaged three steals a game last year. If he and Kyrie can work well together and the Cavs front office did their due diligence in making sure his character issues were unfounded, I will be interesting to see how he turns out.
He was high on just about everyone's board, though. Let's not pretend as if this pick came out of nowhere. He has been flying up boards for a reason. Guy seems to have crazy potential.
