I mean how many times have we drafted an uber-athlete that smacks DPOY-level material yet waaaaay behind on offense/shooting hoping we can just teach that. Why not get those that are flashing and brimming with offense this time and hope we can develop or mask their defense?
Im taking about Barnes of course. When there are offensive-minded players available like Bouknight Keon and Moody, why do we pick the archetype again of Iwundu,JI,Bamba,Chuma,Frazier etc?
We did draft Cole last year, and it was apparently a close-call between him and RJ at that spot, so perhaps the front office is also coming around to your way of thinking: choosing offensively talented players who may not be fully developed on defense.
