We messed up.

Not taking Cousins is yet another draft misstep in sixers history.  I wouldnt have cared if turner played well in summer league, you simply cant pass up on a possibly dominant big man.  And Cousins is reinforcing the fact that he will be dominant in summer league.  I get it, its summer league.  But the things hes doing are literally unbelievable and are buttressed by his college performances.

Its not a fluke, the mans a beast.  His chippiness will serve him well.  Whats better?  Taking cousins, the pick with the higher upside while simultaneously solving our need at big man.  He boards, he posts, hes got perimeter game, and hes a playmaker.  Or taking turner...who needs the ball to justify his game while we have an up and coming PG in jrue and iguodala.

Im thoroughly depressed.  Had he not had "red flags," would we have taken him?  It makes me sick.  He literally had no red flags.  I hate overrating irrelavencies, which im probably doing with summer league.  But im not.  Cousins is and will be better.
