Why is the general theme here shock and dismay at Johnson over Cousins? Hasn't it been obvious for weeks now that it was Favors or Johnson? You can disagree with the pick but you should have seen it coming 10 miles away. I also have another objection to the draft coverage from my favorite (and really only) Wolves site:
I want to clarify this by saying that by no means am I sold on David Kahn as a basketball decision maker, and I do not agree with some of the moves made tonight
I don't think that Stop-n-Pop (who's takes I usually really enjoy) has been fair with his coverage of the draft both on this site and on twitter. I know this website doesn't claim to be a real source of journalism, but I come here for professional opinions, especially from the head writer and based on tonight I wouldn't be able to tell his opinions apart from any other drunken fan at a bar. All he has done is fire insults and crack lame unfunny jokes. It's cool to disagree and criticize the picks/trades and disagree with them, but going with #firekahn and #hirepritchard (ludicrous) hash tags on twitter and really insulting the Kahn man all night is just disrespectful, especially after the access he has granted bloggers and this website in particular. Hate to be a prude, and again, I'm not sold on him nor do I love this draft, but I was dissapointed with Hoopus tonight.
Lets hope we are all wrong about Wes Johnson and that Cousins melts down and baloons to 350...
