While we are all waiting for the game, I thought I'd pose a genuine question about Mo Wagner for the Board -- particularly those who know a lot about basketball. In my exuberance over Wagner's excellence, I mentioned to people that he should be a top 10 pick in the draft. My brief reasoning was the a 6 foot 11 inch player who can shoot 3 pointers is valuable in the NBA today particularly because he looks like he is going to fill out and gain weight. This was immediately guffawed by the other people around me (who aren't Michigan fans) and I did some research on it. I was suprised that he isn't more highly regarded for the NBA.
What am I missing about today's NBA and/or Wagner's skills that don't make a higher draft pick? And, separate question, how many spots has this tournament's play moved him up?
Any thoughtful answers greatly appreciated. Dayenu! And Let's Go Blue!
