    Worse, drunk uppity Kentuckians. Nothing worse than a chain-smoking, bourbon-burping, long-haired dude, dressed head-to-toe in UK gear, with his pinky in the air. Damn ..

    Of the players that were picked after Kanter, I think Jonas has the best chance to be better than him. Having said that, Enes has no aroma of being a bust, and I don't think we'll regret the pick.

    Exactly. Next year there will be thread like this one but instead of Knight we will be discussing Jonas. To answer OP question - I do not think Jazz made mistake for not drafting Knight at 3.
    "I was originally a Jazz fan but since I am getting pooped on so hard on the Jazz forums it is really starting to make me wish Kanter develops into the Kevin McHale potential he has and make the Jazz look bad. Nothing would make me happier at this point." Unidentified Kanter homer on reddit.

    If only Kanter can learn to jump over two inches he could be dominate

    If we made an error it was Jonas, not Knight.

    I think we made the right call.

    On a side note, as I was walking home from the game I saw about half the pistons team on the side of the road near the gateway waiting for their bus to pick them up. They were all, including Monroe, throwing garbage at cars in the street, laughing, and seeming unfazed by the loss they just experienced.

    However, knight was sitting behind them all looking sullen with headphones on. It could have been from other reasons, but He seemed to be the only one upset with the loss.

    I still think he could become a true talent in this league, but he just isn't really a good fit here.

    Would you guys accept Ben Gordons horrible contract if we get Brandon Knight in return?a

    Watson - Brandon Knight - Tinsley
    Ben Gordon - Burks
    Howard - Hayward
    Millsap - Favors
    Jefferson - Kanter

    There is 100% no way Pistons do that trade. But I would definitely do it for the Jazz.
