Great pick. A+ pick. Why? Because we drafted Kawhi.
Boom. Perfect comparison. Sure we coulda drafted Kawhi in 2011, but the Wizards hands were tied, you gotta take Jan Vesely when you can take Jan Vesely. And now, 8 years later, the Wizards take Kawhi in the form of Rui Hachimura.
He has a great story, was a great player at Gonzaga, and an easy kid to root for. Sweet name too, and first Japanese born player to be drafted. Going to be fun to watch him play. Go Rui go.
