After that pick, people said they liked critt because he had really good potential, and a good attitude. Right after we got him, he scored 27 points in the first pre-season game against GSW. After the game he was super pissed because they had lost by one. All that was good enough to lure the Grizz into giving us Gasol. At that time it was a great move. Gasol is the main addition that made us contenders. But as far as current success, yes Brooks would have been great to have. He's a successful point guard while the other guy currently resides in some Jail somewhere for a murder.
