I know there’s been a lot of discussion here about Wes Johnson lately, but I didn’t really see an appropriate thread to post this question. So here it is. Where did all this positive talk about Wes come from? Is it Wolves FO BS? Is it draft posturing? Have his workouts been amazing?
I mean…I’m really confused. Two months ago, Wes Johnson was the booby prize in the NBA draft. He was a one-dimensional spot-up shooter. Not to mention a poor defender in Syracuse’s NBA unfriendly zone (see Jonny Flynn). Now, I’m reading about him going as high as #3. That he’s a “potential 10-time All-Star.” That he has “elite athleticism,” “great handle,” and is a “great defender.”
Holy crap, things are not matching up here and cognitive dissonance abounds. I watched Wes about 10 times last year, and he NEVER made a good impression on me. He basically hung out at the 3 point line, never put the ball on the floor, and was extremely lazy on his zone wing rotations. But apparently Jim Boeheim teaches his kids how to kiss an NBA GM’s ass.
If we take Wes Johnson with pick# 4, I truly think I’m done with the Wolves. My only request after this little diatribe is that if you want to call me an ignorant a-hole, please explain why…
