Michael Jordan drafted a project seven-footer. Haven’t we heard this story before? His Airness blew another first round pick to continue his perfect career of terrible decision making in the front office. The Frenchman Ajinca did nothing to help the ‘Cats rebuild and was included in the equally terrible Tyson Chandler trade where Charlotte got Erick Dampier’s expiring contract. The Ajinca pick really stings when you consider that Ryan Anderson, Courtney Lee, Serge Ibaka, Nicolas Batum, and George Hill were taken in the next six picks. We love MJ, but as Pusha T might say the swag don’t match the draft picks.
