Yeah, I actually saw him in person, passing him in the tunnel at the Dean Dome.  We played UNC's JV that night and the varsity played against UNC-Asheville afterwards.  Dude WAS GIGANTIC.  I remember feeling bad for him thought because he just looked like he wasn't in it, and the crowd was laughing at everything he did like it was some kind of circus show.  When he blocked shots people treated him like he was a freak rather than a basketball player...  I can't really describe it, but I felt really uncomfortable.  And I'm sure he would've gotten a chance in the league because of his size, but man, it took him FOREVER to get from one end of the court to the other.

WTF?  Just googled him out of curiosity to see what he is doing since the amputation and apparently he made a semi-comeback and played pro ball in the Czech Republic in 2011. 

 

Wow, good to hear.

You mean he is seriously out there playing with half a foot? that is crazy. Good for him.

Is that the game Hansbrough posterized him?

Yup.  Fox Sports South actually showed part of our game against the JV on the highlights as a lead-in to the UNC/UNC-A game.

 

It was just weird though.  I can't really put it into words.  People were laughing, chuckling, and taunting him the whole time.  And not like normal fan taunts...  They were acting like he wasn't even a human.  I was embarrassed to be there and for whatever reason, that always stuck with me from that night.

I want Len, but if he's gone, I'd rather trade down and maybe get Timberwolve's package of Williams, #9, and #26 and take Zeller at #9.  He won't be a center IMO but more so a PF.  We'll still need big man help though.

I'm praying for Len, Bennett, or Noel at 4. I'm ok with the TWolves trade mentioned above but it won't happen. No to Seller at 4 but I have a gut feeling that's what's going to happen. 

 

Cho...do not do any trades that give up out firsts or the Detroit and Portland 1sts. Those could be gold next draft.

I really thought Bennett was going to be the pick until yesterday, now I am thinking Len.  Still want Bennett...

Info from Chad Ford's final mock draft where he has us selecting McLemore

 

"Some information is starting to trickle out of Charlotte. The team is looking at Len, Bennett, Porter and Cody Zeller. In fact, I think Zeller might be in the mix more than I once believed. But my most convincing source persuaded me the Bobcats won't pass on McLemore if he's here."
