Sorry guys, I hate to do this. I usually support Bird, but after seeing all of these rookies that we passed on the 09 draft day really makes my skin crawl. I don't want to hear about how we can't judge Hansbrough yet. When he was playing, he wasn't doing anything except running around and diving recklessly. His hustle and heart, combined with a now obvioius lack of talent, can only take him so far.
Look at Darren Collision. He is already better than all four of our PGs. Ty Lawson is showing all the signs of a productive PG. Omri Casspi plays like a veteran. Taj Gibson is a double-double machine. How could we have passed on these guys?
Bird is fooling us all, and I just can't trust this guy with his horrible draft record.
