In this episode, I break down Denver’s draft and gush about the upside of Michael Porter Jr. I take you behind the scenes at Pepsi Center and share how stunned everyone in the local media was to see him fall to Denver at 14. I talk about the back surgery and the injury concerns that caused him to fall in the draft. I go over his strengths and weaknesses as a player and discuss why sitting out a year might be the best move for him.
I also talk about Jarred Vanderbilt, the sneaky great pick of the night and a player who brings many of the best Kenneth Faried qualities without some of the Manimal’s negatives.
