Its a "lottery ticket" for sure, and one that comes with the added benefit of providing that extra "chip on the table" when Giannis hits free agency in a couple of seasons.


At the end of the day, a player for UD got drafted for the first time in a "longggggggg" time. If he was helping work the basketball camp last week as someone posted, then there can't be that bad of blood between he and the coaching staff. Be happy for him and the program, wish him well and perhaps if he finds success, no matter how small some deem the possibility, it will reflect well on UD and CAG down the road.
Poppycock. Those traits are rationalizations for drafting him, not why he was drafted. He was drafted because of his name. Period. There are literally thousands of better and more deserving players out there. He is a bench warmer from a mediocre (at best) A10 team.

I'm as happy as anyone that he was drafted and I hope he becomes a perennial all-star, but that doesn't mean we have to play pretend.
