Someone with similar size, athleticism & a lesser skillset got drafted in the lottery.

I hope you're not comparing him to Fab Melo.

Miles Plumlee is a shit defender defender. Fab Melo is one of the 10 best defenders in the entire draft.

I do

He will be fine in Indy. Underrated prospect. Mocks don't mean shit. If a team reaches but the player is good, nobody freaking cares. Look at Westbrook.

Take a look at this :

http://wagesofwins.com/2012/06/25/20...-the-rankings/

This was made before the draft.

Look at the n1 player in the list. Look for the guy that the Spurs drafted with the 59th pick this draft and then take a look at the list again.

If you think this doesn't mean shit, take a look at the same model from 2011. The top 3 in the list were Faried, Irving and Leonard. Who made the 1st all-rookie team again ?

Oops lol

Maybe he's talking about the talentless Drummond? Drummond may not know shit about basketball but he's one of the most athletic players I've seen in years and at least blocked a lot more than .6 shots a game...

I don't know this guy got drafted before Draymond Green. Pathetic.
