The Sonics confound me. Serge Ibaka? Wait a minute - didn't he tell every NBA team that he didn't want to be drafted in the first round? Isn't this a complete and utter waste of a pick?
More to come, but I'm utterly confused by this pick. It's not that Ibaka is untalented or unworthy of being selected this high, it's that he specifically told teams to not take him until the 2nd round. Either Sam Presti is a genius that knows of a way to pry Ibaka from Europe, or the Sonics just threw away the #24 pick in the draft.
