The rational I can of is that Biz himself is raw and to draft Drummond too be redundant as far as raw youth.
sent from the pseudo GM offices of the Charlotte Bobcats.
you guys hear MKG's agent was informed that MKG was traded to cleveland but last second the deal fell through...damn
Great news!!! I found the Driven: Tougher Fast Strong - Bobcats Draft Special on YouTube!!

6:34 at part one, what do you think is being said?
Stern: "Sorry man, I had to give 'em the first pick, he just bought that franchise. I did give you #2 though so that's better than 4 right? Maybe next year."
Cho: "Yeah, get the fuck out of my face"
Some other things I caught from Part 1--
13.58: Thomas Robinson's name is bolded in the list of workout participants. I wonder if that means he stood out versus Drummond.... paused too soon, scout said he looked really good
14:40: Sounds like Cho is a fan of Drummond but can't justify to himself (or others) drafting another raw big man. Take him off the list
0:30: Higgins considers Robinson redundant with what our "strengths" already are and would probably need to trade somebody since he would have to start. Take him off the list
1:15: Cho says we "need some help at the 3 spot". This is starting to make me nervous that they went the need route instead of the BPA route
2:34: Looks like the Forward Hierarchy was Davis, Robinson, Gilchrist, Barnes, Henson, P. Jones, T. Jones and Guard Hierarchy is Beal, Lillard, Waiters, Rivers, Lamb, Marshall (cant see Centers).... more feelings that we went need over BPA
X: Really like just about everything I see about Dunlap. The season will really tell me for sure what my opinion is.
14:00: Love Cho's response and the other GM's pause like, "damn I thought I could fool him"
2:10: "Our number one scenario, it sounds like, would be to get extra value and get Gilchrist, right?" Sounds like the process settled onto him as the favorite. Dunno if it's need over BPA still, though
Absolutely great find engimaboy!!! Really good for us international fans, so interesting listening to all the behind the scenes work during the draft.
* Which idiot offered next years 2nd for our 2nd this year? It was a very deep draft and we had the 31st pick? I thought gm's were supposed to be clever...
* Also interesting to see it was between Tyshaun Taylor and Jeff Taylor at 31. I would have thought Quincy Miller would have been closer that Tyshaun
I'm glad we didn't draft Robinson but not drafting a rebounder b/c it would be redundant with our "strengths" is enough to make me want to choke Higgins to death. Tyrus can't box out a balloon, Biz is still learning, Mully thinks he's Bargnani, and DJ White was a waste of a roster spot.
