    Oh, I thought you were just naming international guys. Haddadi could've made it in the 90s. Yuta was just a mascot.

    I almost forgot Pay Burke too.

    I always considered Burke just an average end of bench big. Never thought he might develop into a player. He was what he was. Never even thought THAT much of haddadi.

    Burke was D'Antoni's human victory cigar.

    I thought Nico Mannion would be signed to more than a two-way contract.

    I would say more like the basketball version of Johnny Manziel.

    An even better comparison, except Manziel had some success in college (but then again, so did Marinovich)...

    Don’t Sr’s” not usually use Sr in their names—just juniors and so on? Just seems odd to me. No matter.

    Steve Smith made it a trend when he had his son.

    The 2020 draft was deep particularly in regard to big men and point guards. It will be interesting to follow.

    For example, the Suns traded the 40th pick. Tre Jones was selected at 41. I think that would have been a solid pick if they had been able to keep it.

    In bygone eras I think Daniel Oturu would have been a first round pick, perhaps even in the top 15 picks.

    Hmm. Nice player. Blocks, rebounds, scores, shoots the three at 37%. Might be a sleeper in this draft.

    I would have liked for the Suns to have found a way to acquire him to reunite with Smith. I think they complimented each other quite well...

    Oturu had a lot of strengths to fall into the second round. He could be quite a nice player. I expect a number of second round picks to stick from the 2020 draft.
