Analyzing the Cavs' Draft Decision with Hard Evidence

Leading up to the draft, there seemed to be a large consensus of people who wanted Joel Embiid over Jabari Parker and Andrew Wiggins. Although Embiid had serious injury concerns, he was likely to make an immediate impact on the defensive end with his rim protection, and his upside was off-the-charts. When news broke of Embiid's foot injury, the wheels fell off of that bandwagon.

Currently, we're left with Wiggins or Parker. Wiggins would have been the first pick last year and entered this year as the consensus favorite to go number one, but did not quite live up to the unrealistic expectations some had for him as a freshman. So, the alternative is another hyped-freshman in Parker, who some folks are yearning for, citing pro-readiness and even the fact that it is rumored that LeBron prefers Parker, (which cannot be proven and is the single dumbest reason to take a guy number one that I have ever heard.)

Now, the draft is in two days. It happens to be just a few hours after the United States takes on Germany in an elimination game. Years of being a Cleveland sports fan tells me that when my teams are in elimination games, they lose, and I end up left with nothing but sadness and despair.

So, Cavs, I'm already likely to be going into the draft pissed off. Please do not make things even worse and take another tweener forward that has weight issues and does not believe in defense. (Granted, he is much better than Bennett, but my point remains.) Take Wiggins, because he is the better prospect. If you do not believe me, I have evidence. The photo below illustrates that Wiggins can block the GOAT, Michael Jordan, and lead evil-cartoons to victory over the Tune Squad. Sucks to suck, MJ.



With this proof, the decision now seems fairly straight forward. You're welcome, Griff.
