Guys, I am so bummed by these reports that JV has been promised he will be selected #6 by the Wizards. The saddest part is that these reports have stiffled discussion on this blog. It's our suffering as Wizards fans (and Skins fans, and Terp fans, and Caps fans, etc etc) to have our hopes and dreams dashed.
Can we start a e-mail deluge of Ted begging him not to take Vesely?? Kawhi Leonard doesn't excite me, but Vesely would just totally piss me off. The dude is 6'11''. I don't understand what else he has to offer? Oh, that's right, motor. It sucks really bad that for another year we spent two months agonizing over the draft and proposing trades only to have Ernie stand pat and pick some Euro beanpole who can't make free-throws or play defense.
I know very little about this guy, but my gut tells me HUGE BUST. Stay away, Ernie. Make a trade and get Kanter or Williams. Otherwise, go with a proven American player who can rebound and defend. Shit, I'd be happy with Kemba Walker at this point.
The funny thing is that mock drafts going back to the beginning predicted this. They know Ernie just as well as we do.
