Re: NBA Offseason Thread 2012
I think steal of the draft may be a stretch, but yes I do think Sullinger was a steal at 21, I didn't expect him to make it to us. I don't think he'll be an All-Star but I think he will be a very solid starter for us. I never said he was too small to be good at PF, I know that for a fact. Also I never said he wasn't worth the trouble, I just said the last thing we need is another injury prone player if his back turns out to be a significant problem.
No it won't be sad to see Mo go. Chauncey > Mo and I'd much rather have Eric Bledsoe getting Mo's PT. Eric is younger, has more potential, is the much better defender and is a decent offensive player adding to the fact that Mo went ghost as usual in the playoffs and Eric was obviously the better player. As far as Odom goes, if he's mentally into it like he was with the Lakers then the Clippers just got a steal in that trade, however if they get Dallas Odom, the Clippers look like idiots.
