I guess he is so well likes because of the good trades he made but I think any of us would have drafted Drummond or Beal at #2.
Yes Cho's drafting has been questionable.
The MKG and Zeller picks both surprised me when they happened, especially the Zeller pick. I know it's early in his career, but Zeller is a 7-footer who does not play under the basket much, it seems like he's better when playing like a traditional power forward then when trying to be a stretch four and missing jump shots.
I've never understood the passing on Bradley Beal or Ben McLemoure when you need scorers, 3 point shooters.
This team is amazing in the fact that they can hang with Indiana and Miami one night, then get killed the next by a lesser team the next. The big issue is consistency.
It also sucked that Jeffery Taylor got hurt, he was starting to develop, he had a great leap and he could also hit the 3 from the corner. But like everyone else on the team it seems, he also had his cold streaks.
What that tells me, even if the team makes the playoffs this year, they are not consistent enough to win 7 game series, so they need more talent, via draft or otherwise.
I was between Beal and MKG in the 2012 draft. Then, made up my mind on MKG. Was very, very high on him. But, my decision doesnt matter bc Im not Cho. Cho who is paid to scout/draft players shouldve been smart enough to see a guy like Beal or Drummond. Hindsight 20/20, the MKG pick is very questionable and could turn out being a bad pick.
The Zeller pick is just flat out bad. Im not ruling the kid out but again we needed a SG badly and we passed up on McLemore. Even Noel would have made more sense in regard to the signing of Jefferson and long term.
