    Is Rubio the next Darko or what? 18yr foreign player - massively hyped.

    Agreed. Can't see him doing so well in the half court.

    i think he'll be a good player in a good system, a nash type that doesn't go maniacally into the paint, then look for his outlet...oops there goes the first three years of his career!

    I am very skeptical. Ok - so he had a good Olympics showing, so did Pepe Shanchez and Arroyo. Sometimes I wonder if they hype certain players to trick someone into picking them early.

    Hear the interview with Day? He sounded very grounded and mature. Seems to know whats ahead of him. I think its going to work out pretty good for us. So he looks like Prince - only Dumars best pick ever to date.

    Where's Carlos and his scouting report when you need him? Casspi looked great in the highlights. I'm getting buyer's remorse already.

    I think Curry gives him some minutes cause he can hit the perimeter shot and at 6"huge it'll open up the interior. He's got soft hands and is a good passer.

    decent pick, he's got a nice shot but his feet are a little slow for the NBA

    i wouldn't mind getting danny green with our next pick

    AD talking on ESPN Draft chat.



    Austin Daye: going into the summer of my senior year, I was not ranked high. At the end of the summer, I was ranked in the top 25. So teams were starting to look at me.

    Trent (Minnesota): Austin, how was playing for Mark Few

    Austin Daye: Great coach. Good mentor. Smart man. He definitley knows his X's and O's. I definitely see a Final Four in the future.

    Vickers (Atlanta, GA): how do you like the pistons system?

    Austin Daye: It's changing. I think they're a great team. I haven't been able to watch them a whole lot being on the West Coast. They like to control games and they play good defense.

    Dominic (OH): whats it like being up on that stage?does the commish have a firm handshake?

    Austin Daye: Yeah, he did. From a small guy, you wouldn't expect such a forceful handshake. It was a good experience.

    T (NC): Do you think you will be able to contribute right out of the gates for the pistons next year?

    Austin Daye: Hopefully. I think so. They want me to come in and help any way I can. Block shots, rebounding, scoring. I'll do whatever I can to help the team.

    Dino (CA): What is your favorite pre-game meal?

    Austin Daye: I would have to say Mexican food. I like it a lot. Meats, tacos. Definitely not reccommended, but it's one of my favorite pregame foods.

    Clay (Pennsylvania): Do you think the Rookie team will prevail during All-Star weekend?

    Austin Daye: Hopefully. If we can come out and play like a team we can definitely win.

    Tommy (California): What influenced your decision to leave college early?

    Austin Daye: Just a comfortable feeling that I would go high in the draft which I did. I'm happy that I did.

    Sean (Massachusetts): Who was the most challenging team that you played in your college career (and what year was it)?

    Austin Daye: North Carolina this year.
