    Deadpool is his favorite Marvel character. He also has the Joker and Batman I believe.

    This guy is a gigantic nerd. I like that.

    So, what are the knocks on this guy? At 6'7" with PG skills, 3-point range, and a nasty dunking habit, he looks great. He's also supposed to be a plus defender.

    Is it just the age? For a PG, I think that I'd prefer that he be 24. Maybe he'll be more mature and ready to step in.


    It will probably evaporate when I see him play for us, but I'm excited by the highlight reels. With Ellenson, it's sort of the opposite. The highlight reels make me wince as I imagine his weak dunk attempts getting blocked into the 10th row.

    SVG said he was in the top 25 on their big board.

    There is usually value in the 2nd round. If you pick right, it can really help.

    Here are a few pretty good 2nd round picks: Ginobli, Rodman, Boozer, Arenas, Hornacek, Marc Gasol, Redd, Monta Ellis, Danny Ainge, Stephen Jackson, Kukoc, Varejao, Millsap

    For each one of these guys, there are two dozen guys that don't cut it. It's a crap shoot. You have to be lucky.

    Magic played point a 6'9" which I thought was cheating.
    The league should've stepped in and made him a SF.
    Looks like he can see the floor.
    I see Popes minutes around 29.

    It's a long shot but the Pistons have drafted some second rounders playing in the League...Middleton, Jerebko, Amir.

    It is the place to gamble. I would love to see the Pistons start stockpiling 2nd rounders.

    This is where you find your 3 and D guys. If they don't like anyone go after young B league/junior league guys.

    Don't forget 3-point specialist Will Blalock.

    You could have taken this from the Spencer Dimwiddie welcome thread.

    Wasn't he referred to as a lottery if not for injury pick?

    Most of the comments were about his mustache.

    Except Spencer didn't shoot the 3 and wasn't a ferocious dunker.

    I have a lot of faith in SVG's player picking ability. Tobias Harris has been a revolution in Detroit. He is putting up less numbers but has become a winner. He has completely destroyed the expectation that I had when we got him from Orlando.

    You can add Isaiah Thomas and Danny Green to that list and there are actually a tonne more. 2nd rounders have to fight to see the court. I like that.

    We don't need Magic Johnson. Just give us a good rotation player.
