Nacho: FUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK YOU LARRY BROWN!
Fuck you with pants on because you've shackled us with a Frenchman who won't put on a Bobcat jersey until long after you've gone.
Fuck you for taking Kevin Durant's ShortRound with a top 10 pick.
Fuck you for using the 2008 Draft to replace Earl Boykins and Primo Brezec.
Fuck you for GETTING BRONZE WITH A TEAM COMPRISED OF NBA ALL-STARS!
Brethren's hatred, after...
Brethren: I am the cock-eyed optimist of the two, but even I raised an eyebrow at this draft. I'm not gonna lie, hearing Larry Brown say he "fell in love" with the Frenchie during a workout is not music to my ears. Even the renowned Europlayer lover that is Chad Ford wrote that he doesn't know any player who's ever averaged 5 points a game in France become a good NBA player.
I'm okay with DJ Augustine, but looking back probably would have preferred Brook Lopez. Same way I kinda like Morrison, but would have preferred Brandon Roy. Same way I can deal with Felton/May, but would have preferred rolling them up to take Chris Paul.
All I know is this draft is a few days old and I'm still reeling in exasperation. I try to keep the faith, but I don't know. It's tough to when these kind of decisions get made.
Hopefully DJ can prove me wrong. I'm expecting ZERO from the Frenchman. Fucking French.
