Chad Ford's comment on Mitch McGary make it sound like he is taking it personally that Mitch didn't follow his "advice" and make himself eligible for the draft. While I agree that any certain lottery pick should go, Ford was only guessing. Mitch and GRIII didn't have enough of a body of work to guarantee them lottery pick or even first round status.
Worst of all, if they had gone into the draft and slid into the second round, it is they who would have "paid the freight," not Ford. Ford officially made the transition from "journalist" to "parasite" with that comment.
