Re: Pistons Trade For Brandon Jennings
and rethinking it, MOST TEAMS had Darko as #2 or #3 pick, so how was it really a mistake? This kid was a mystery, his work outs were great, and he really impressed scouts.
Its rare you see the amount of athleticism and moves he displayed when working out for teams. Every account I read of Darko, scouts were in awe with his shot, movement, and handles for a big man.
He just wasn't ready for the NBA and Larry Brown probably broke him. Larry Brown is notorious for riding rookies hard and not letting them play much.
