This is the most valid argument against Toppin I've heard so far, although David Lee wasn't nearly as athletic. Ideally I'd want Edwards, but he's not falling to 4, so either we trade down or Toppin it is. Tell me one player who'll likely be available at 4 with a higher upside than Toppin. I'll wait
You are shorting David Lee‘s athleticism quite a bit. He won the McDonald’s dunk contest coming out of HS.
Draft Express still has their scouting report page up from his draft. The first sentence: “A terrific athlete.”
I remember David Lee. He wasn't nearly as explosive
Ok I’ll take your memories over the “at the time” words of Givony.
