    This might be a better video, shows his passing; although they never get to weaknesses.

    Elleby?....bleh

    Spurs and Warriors are my favorite drafts of the night, pretty easily.

    Well, they didn't have their first pick at #46. :)

    Never seen elleby play so won’t comment. But it’s Olshey and he’s the second round god so I trust him.

    I will say there are quite a few players that went undrafted that I would take over Moses Brown on a two way.

    Which falls in line with this detail about his weaknesses:

    "All in all, Elleby has shown flashes of all the tools required of a complementary player in the 3-and-D mold at the next level."

    Well, at least we didn't draft this dude in the first round.

    Babbitt was, ironically, drafted #16, which is the pick we just traded away. Babbitt at #46 isn't a terrible decision, all things considered.

    Is that @THE HCP in the pic with CJ?

    And why is CJ holding onto his hat? He's about to be traded?

    And why the fuck do we need another CJ? One is plenty.

    I went over and checked it out. Neither he nor Hoopsjock expected him to be drafted so they didn't have stats or profile handy. Hoopsjock has watched him quite a few times; felt like his percentages might be better, except he got a lot of defensive pressure from other team. They wanted Tillie or Scrubb. Hoopsjock says he plays no defense which I disagree with, but did note he is a good rebounder. Bones was upset but trusts Olshey on his second round picks.
    I personally like the pick. I like a guy who has heart and confidence.

    Don’t love the pick at all, but what do I know. I’m just glad it wasn’t Tillie.

    Come on the kid is 2nd rounder and won't see the floor this year and maybe not year either. If he pans out in his third year then a good pick but not well that the crap shoot when you pick in the 2nd round. Friday will start to pick players that supposed be in the rotation this year so get excited about that.

    I think it's important to remember all of Olshey's big hits in the second round were guys he traded up to get in the early second. I just feel like Olshey must not have been too excited about anyone left in the second round or at least excited about the way they'd fit with this team. Maybe Olshey is disenfranchised with the draft and scouting process being so limited this season. Anyway the point is that I don't expect this guy to have the impact of a PatCon, Layman or Gary because it seems like he was just BPA at 46, nothing special. Of course I could have all of everything wrong always.

    Granted highlights are always the best of a player's career, but i like what i see. He has a smooth, compact, high, release on his shot. Good court vision, and accuracy on passes. I hope he kicks ass.
