And The Horst Era Begins

"I’m not excited", "it’s a safe pick", "there isn’t a wow factor here", "where’s John Hammond when we need him" and finally "LOVE IT"….these are all the things that were said via twitter immediately after the Bucks took D.J. Wilson (PF from Michigan) with the 17th overall pick in the 2017 NBA Draft. Short of the John Hammond comment, those were my thoughts exactly. This isn’t a flashy pick but what do you expect, in reality, when you’re picking at 17?  The Bucks are needing solid scorers, defenders and hopefully they end up with the rim protector that’s so desperately missing but this is about adding pieces around Giannis, Middleton, Thon and Parker. While we all have trust in the draft process in recent history, that was the aforementioned Hammond, let’s hope the guy that appears on twitter as @Lanky_smoove can start the Horst era off on the right foot.
