The last thing I wanted to add, was everyone should notice how hyped Darko was back then. A lot of people today like to talk as if they knew he was going to be a bust, but the reality is, NBA scouts, coaches, and GMs all thought he was going to be great, so people claiming they knew all along are 99% full of it.
I'm so sick of most media outlets that I didn't even watch the video (don't plan to either).
On my thoughts on Wilbon: Back in the day, I didn't mind him that much. He was okay. I can certainly seen him being the contradicting type, though, but most of people in the media are.
That 2003 draft was pretty deep, so yeah, I can see how people could be drinking the kool-aid on the Darko hype.
