|SHUT UP! I DON'T WANT YOU!|
My Cavs went into the Draft with picks 4, 24, 33, and 34. In theory, they were going to build some much needed depth. In my mind, I was excited at the thought of putting a star and three solid role players around our already budding superstar. What I got...was not so much.
Look, the worst case scenario happened and that was MKG and Beal going 2 and 3. It was OK though because our front office has loved Harrison Barnes for years and there are some that think that we would have taken him #1 overall last year had he come out. You can do a lot worse than a 1-2 of Uncle Drew and Barnes.
With the 4th pick in the NBA Draft, the Cleveland Cavaliers select Dion Waiters from Syracuse University.
WHAT THE FUCK! It wasn't that hard of a choice. Hell, Chad Ford said earlier in the day that the Cavs had narrowed it down to Beal, MKG, and Barnes (nice call there, faggot). In a draft which contains 5 sure things, Chris Grant took the 8th best player overall at #4. OMG. How is this even possible? Where am I? On a team with almost zero outside shooting, they WASTE the #4 pick on a guy that sucks as a shooter? FIRE EVERYONE IN THAT WAR ROOM TODAY. I would have rather gotten abused by Michael Jordan in a trade up to 2 than to take a 6'4" fucking combo guard from a school that doesn't teach defense.
Maybe they didn't care for Harrison Barnes; that's fine. But why would you draft a guy at FOUR that refused to work out for ANY team? What exactly made you fall in love with him? I want goddamn answers here. If there is one positive about Waiters, he does get to the rim at will and is built like a tank. But that is the problem. I'm afraid that our management staff thinks that they just got the next Wade and I'm about 99% sure that that isn't true.
I'm not worried about how he never started at Syracuse. Who cares? The coaches there like to touch little boys. He was the best player on the team by far and closed every game. I don't why he was a sixth man and I don't care. Not hearing his name announced when the lights are out doesn't make him shit. If you think that that is a big deal then you are a tard and should work for the Cavs.
However, I am pretty excited about the team coming up and getting Tyler Zeller. They gave up the rest of the draft to get him, but he fits in extremely well and is going to be a rock solid player in the league for a decade plus. He runs the floor well, rebounds, and shoots free throws well. I like this pick a lot. It sucks to give up 3 picks, but a team that drafts Dion Waiters at 4 shouldn't be allowed to draft more than 2 players anyway. Zeller is just a really good player that a really dumb team just landed.
I don't know--maybe I'm overreacting. Usually, when you are picking high you need a superstar and we already have ours. Maybe Waiters is going to be a solid #2 player for the team and Zeller does his thing in the middle. It still doesn't hide the fact that LeBron left two years ago and we still have done nothing to replace him.
It's just disappointing to go in thinking that you are going to stock the cupboards and end up with two players; one of which you never wanted and was a reach. I will change my stance on firing everyone, I suppose, but this front office is on notice: Waiters and Zeller better hit or you're all fucking fired. Other notes:
*Sullinger to the Celtics--who called that? Not Drew because he is dumb.
*Enjoy Andre Drummond. Iceman hates it, Drew loves it. I'm going to need The Wig Master to break the tie!
*One more thing about the Cavs: Michael Jordan fucked us over again. Charlotte is the ONLY team out there where MKG wouldn't be a good fit.
*Anthony Davis's pre-Draft meal was a dozen tin cans.
*The ESPN coverage was very good.
Whatever, I'm done. Time to start chugging Drano.
