He’s a guy I’d love to have on the Cavs right now, but 3-4 years from now when this team is hopefully vying for a championship, do we still want the Cavs to be spending big bucks on him? This isn’t an argument to what you guys were saying by the way, just asking a question. Harv 21agree with both of you about the way fans spout dogmatic draft expertise, as if we scout players and actually know something. I don’t attribute this to twitter like Scott; maybe that has amplified it but it’s all the unholy offspring of Mel Kiper, Jr., the Godfather of blowhard amateur player opinions. Now it’s snowballed and leaked into basketball. Just yesterday I commented about Noel’s shoulder width as an indicator of his future ability to gain sufficient weight … sounds right to me but what am I talking about? GMs pay the price for bad evaluations with their jobs. The Kipers never do, because no one calls them on their inaccuracy and, because they’re entertainers, no one cares. Their essence is the confident attitude and entertaining manner when their “expertise” is delivered. But this makes us fans think we know something because, hey, looks like anyone can do this.
