2012 NBA Draft Losers
Now I get it, new Pacers GM Kevin Pritchard told Larry Bird that the team was going to use their first round pick on Duke’s Miles Plumlee. Bird was baffled by the decision, asked if Pritchard was joking, then resigned upon finding out Pritchard was serious. It all makes sense. Seriously though, I don’t care if Plumlee is almost seven-foot and athletic for his size; did the Pacers not see how unproductive he was during his career at Duke. Never once did I watch Miles play and think, “man, this dude is a first round pick.” Even if Orlando Johnson was a decent second round pick-up, it by no means makes up for taking Plumlee so high. Baffling.
