White men still can't jump, but this one
doesn't have to.

The scary part is that they're fighting
over a regulation size basketball.

It's in there some where.

And there's some Maori blood in there too - her sister has a bit of that in her facial structure.

Sadly, though, the first guy Steve brings to mind is Shawn Bradley.

Sadly?  If you told the Thunder front office, right now, that they drafted the next Shawn Bradley, it would be high-fives and champagne all around.  An elite shot blocker is a home run at #12.  What sport are you watching?

"Elite"? Are we talking about the same among-the-top-ten-draft-busts-of-all-time Shawn Bradley?

Shawn Bradley may not have been one of the best players of all time, but he was certainly not a bust. He was a solid contributor. Averaged 8.1 points, 6.3 rebounds, and 2.5 blocks per game.

Yes.  He made those lists based on his first couple of seasons, then was fine when he found his role.  Morons who regurgitate lists attached that reputation to him and it stuck among "Basketball-'fans'-who-don't-actually-watch-basketball".  You're displaying a staggering lack of either independent thought or general sports acumen.

I'm not putting Bradley in the HOF, I'm saying a guaranteed Bradley with the 12th pick today is a clear win.

Gotcha.  Missed that.

But he's still going to suck.  He's a 7 foot white/ploynesian/micronesian guy who averaged seven points and six rebounds in college and never played against elite basketball competition in high school.

Seven points and six rebounds per game as a freshman when you didnt have good high school experience is pretty darned good.  He will probably play mostly D-league for the next 2 years or so.  Hopefully he develops.

Steve Adams with the 12th pick is a perfectly defensible selection. It was a terrible draft, might as well grab an upside guy, especially if you're a contender who doesn't need someone to come in right away and carry a huge load. From what I've ready Adams was improving pretty consistently throughout his year in college. I would rather the Celtics had him then Olynyk (sp?)- I think he's pretty close to having already reached his ceiling.

Also, my favorite part of the article was when they were drooling over the rookie wage scale. "Well over $2 million a year..." Gadzooks! He must be one of the highest paid players on his team!

That really doesn't show how tall (large?) she is. This does.
