Joe Dumars owes these two a huge debt of gratitude for being his peers this past decade.
Here’s a link from Bleacher Report, a very entertaining sports blog, discussing the worst draft picks of the last decade. Joe Dumars was far from the worst GM of the last ten years, but he’s responsible for the worst draft choice this decade — maybe ever when you consider who we passed on.
Mateen Cleaves and Rodney White were overlooked, but thank goodness other former-players-turned-GMs like Michael Jordan, Billy Knight and Isaiah Thomas. Compared to them, Dumars looks like a NASA scientist.
Try not to think of the guys we could have had instead, and look to the future — at some point we will draft Joe’s son, Jordan Dumars.
