    shyt happens. Find me a GM who knew he'd be a star and I'll show you a liar.

    Many players far exceed expectations after being picked late. Kawhi. John Stockton. Draymond Green.
    Suns ain't the only ones who passed up on him so im sure every team not bolded above are kicking themselves right now

    I'll also point out that most of the GOATs also weren't picked number 1. Jordan... Picked third. Durant was picked after Greg Oden. Kobe was picked thirteenth... And yes, there are some duds picked ahead of him. Sometimes draft choices are about luck more than decision making

    further evidence that job interviews some the dumbest shyt we do in america.


    pay attention to peoples actual merits instead of asinine shyt like that, that has no bearing on the actual fukking job he's paid to do.

    you not wrong, but how many of those teams passed on him because he sweat too much?

    whatever though. we already know the suns a terribly run organization.


    anyway kawhi is an all-time great already, but he definitely blessed to have ended up in two well run organizations so far in his career. the suns passing on him was a good thing for his life and development.

    It's not just that they passed on him, it's the reason why. One of the most bullshyt I've ever heard.

    They dubbed him the Euro Blake Griffin cause he is athletic and can dunk. But he couldn’t shoot even FTs, has no dribble game, didn’t get a ton of boards... he had no skills except running and jumping.

    They took another Czech player in 2012, Tomas Satoransky, who got compared to Vesley in that we thought he’d bust. But they kept him in Europe for four years to bring over but atleast Sato can hoop.

    The Wizards worked out Kawhi. There was good reason to believe he would get picked at #6. In fact I was expecting it. I wasn’t excited about it because Kawhi didn’t have much offensively coming out but we had John Wall coming off his rookie year playing with Nick Young, Javale McGee and Andray Blatche...

    And then on draft day, I listened to the radio on my way home from my internship. Got out of the metro, got in my car, and immediately heard the entire Czech Embassy was at the Wizards Draft Party at the arena. I yelled in “NOOOO!” in my car and prayed someone would take Vesley before #6. I was pissed.

    This was 2 years after the Wizards traded the #5 pick in 2009 for Randy Foye and Mike Miller.
