    Good for him! Always liked Larkin, didn't think he had the credentials. Might have been helped out by the fact that all the steroid users are starting to come up.
    3 scenarios for the draft, starting with my favorite first:

    1. Pacers trade up for Justice Winslow

    2. Take WCS or Stanley Johnson (this is the theory of a player falling); Make trades (Hibbert/West/others) for additional picks - George Lucas and Rakeem Christmas are players I'd love to have with a late first/early 2nd round

    3. Trey Lyles

    I'm sure my opinion will change many times before the draft though.

    A bit shocked. A very very good player. He was always good or very good at everything, but never overwhelmingly good or elite at anything. Well, as far as when I think about being HoF elite at something anyway.

    I still wonder about his steroid use for one year. Just out of nowhere he had one year where he was hitting far more home runs than the rest of his career. It was gone, as soon as it showed up.
