Guy can play a little, huh? I especially liked his quick hands on defense. Nice block on (5'9") Barea.

Indeed. I wasn't initially very high on the pick, but dude has changed my perception quickly. He is improving rapidly.

I can't remember the last time I said this, but I hope this kid stays with the Hawks franchise for his entire career. I can see Zaza and Jenkins being crowd favorites for a long time.

And I wanted Ezeli. Go figure.

He appears to have a ceiling of a better Kevin Martin, considering he has a longer wingspan and better (in form and quickness) shot.

Ferry is a genius, I wasn't mad at all when he picked Jenkins because I saw him play at Vandy. But I feel you Parson, I wanted Fab Melo, he's turning out to be an early bust

I confess, I'm such a poor talent scout that I wanted Melo (second to Ezeli), as well.

Was actually happy Ferry took a shot at Jenkins. At the time of the draft, I wanted PJIII(still do), but Jenkins was only behind Melo because I felt we needed to develop a young center. Knowing that Jenkins was probably the best shooter the college ranks has seen in a while, i would have hated to see him in Miami..

Parson I also admit wanting Ezeli. I also think that I would love to see both reunited...in ATL of course at some point. Ezeli is a beast!

In any case, I think that Ferry and Drew collectivelly also did a good job of managing JJ's time. Not keeping him frustrated while he was learning from vets without getting much PT, then a short but very successful stint in DL and back with us for more consitent PT.

End result, both JJ and Scott are contributing more than I thought they would, especially Scott!

I wanted Perry Jones and think he will be a better player, I think we could have had also JJ with the 2nd rounder. Anyway I think JJ will be just fine, he just need more minutes there to gain some confidence.
