Kaponen?! Give me a break. The guy plays in some crappy league in Finland or that area. How could any team pick this guy in the first round? He has not proven he can play at a high competitive level and supposedly he has a difficult time getting into the lane. Try doing that in the NBA or in a top Euro league.
