The pick is in, you first heard it from Woj about four hours ago, and it’s…. Meh. Now, I grew up rooting for Michigan State and not the fucking Miami Heat so you can see how this might be a generational loathing thing for me. Not that that’s fair; just being honest.
Tim Hardaway has the pedigree. That’s true. He can shoot the basketball. That’s also true. He’s “used to the big stage.” I guess, in a way.
