Darko vs. Wade I think Jackattaq's last post on Darko was dead-on. And while I recently posted on the other forum, that I earnestly wish we had drafted Dwayne Wade, instead of Darko, the reality is that Larry Brown still doesn't like to play rookies. As magnificent as Wade has become (capable of backing up the 1 2 and 3 positions and getting serious minutes in the last two years for the Pistons)- he probably wouldn't have played. And Darko would have been drafted by a lowly squad, and would be getting 15 and 8 with a block or two over the last couple of years. We'd be sitting around wondering who this Wade schlubb is, and how much that 15 and 8 could have helped us against the Spurs last year. Maybe I'm wrong. Maybe Wade's talent was just too obvious to miss, and he'd have made a difference for us from the beginning. But I think that Brown can be pretty stubborn, and would have kept him from being the mega-star he's become.
