he was lottery and top-5 projected for awhile. I remember everyone going wild about how the Mavs robbed Utah for that pick.

I remember thinking the same about our gigantic 7.5-foot bust, Peter John Ramos. both I can remember being lottery projected. wild.

How was Ramos in the NBDL though? Pavel only put up 6 and 6, and he was being guarded by centers damn near a foot shorter like Roger Powell and Jawad Williams.

Then when he finally got NBA time, he got blocked by Maceij Lampe who is probably the only player in the NBA a worse athlete than him. I think there's a clause in every basketball contract that if Maciej Lampe blocks you, your contract is terminated and you have to give the NBA team a rebate for every gamecheck you have earned up to that point.

And this wasn't a sneak from behind, got me on the way up, I didn't see him coming type block. This was Pavel iso'd in the post making a move on Maciej like "what *****, I see you there. I'm backing you down, I'm making a spin move, you can't guard me" and literally got it smashed back into his face.

Son doesn't even look impressive in his highlight tape

I don't remember Romain Sato because i never even watched him play. But i was reading his strengths on nbadraft.net, and he seemed like a damn monster. what happened to him?

Quote:
Strengths: Freakish athleticism. Combines broad shoulders and amazing strength with jaw dropping leaping ability. Has a great 3 point stroke. Leadership skills, and winning attitude with excellent willingness to improve and be coached. Has a pretty amazing body-extremely well built but flexible. Super defensively and a strong rebounder. Sato rebounds like a power forward-he goes after everything.

He still needs to get better as a creator, but already possesses NBA 3 pt range, and looks great doing it. Has a great attitude as well. Romain is one of the rare guards who impact a game 3 dimensionally-meaning offense, defense, and rebounding. His 6’5 frame features a 7’ wingspan, huge and defined upper body muscles, and strong legs that enable him to jump 38+” vertically. As a 2 guard, he is a beast.

I think he tried out for the Suns about a year ago.
