    I actually look at it again...Isiah ****ed up.


    We had some holes at shooting and post defense.

    Rudy was one of the best shooters available, and probably the best SG prospect in the draft. We passed on him.

    Tiago Splitter was the best defensive big man available and it wasn't for his contract, he would of been a top 10 pick. We passed on him too.


    Chandler is a good player, but passing on those guys is something Isiah will regret in the future. I really wanted Splitter more than anything. Splitter would of been the perfect compliment to Curry, the PERFECT compliment.

    Splitter is known for his shot blocking, defense and high basketball IQ.

    Lee is athletic, Splitter's defense in the paint is why I really wanted him. When Splitter was 16, people compared him to Dirk or Gasol, because of his offensive game, shooting from 18 feet, posting up, taking it off the dribble. Now he's matured in Europe, and he plays like a Tyson Chandler/PJ Brown, a total reserve of what people projected him to be.

    Guys like Chandler, Brown, Splitter would be an awesome compliment to Curry; so Curry weaknesses won't get exposed as much.
