Kevin O’Connor: With the Minnesota Timberwolves and the 2010 draft, I have heard—and you hear this about a lot of situations about, ‘Oh, we were thinking about taking this guy,’ but I buy this that—in the 2010 draft, they had the hots for Paul George, who ended up going 10th to Indiana. They really, really wanted to take him with the fourth pick. But because of the fact that George, seemingly the consensus amongst—whether it was public, whether it was internally, whether it was other NBA teams—most people thought of Wesley Johnson as a better prospect, so they didn’t go with their gut and take Paul George, the guy they ultimately felt actually was the right guy.
On Wednesday night, the talk of the NBA was, once again, Houston Rockets guard James Harden. This time, however, it wasn’t a historic performance, but rather a specific play as Harden made former Los Angeles Lakers and current Clippers forward Wesley Johnson fall with a filthy crossover. Isaiah Thomas: “He sat him down, as my kids would say. He sat him down. That was a nice move. I’m just glad I’m not that guy that fell. … It was a special play. It’s going to be talked about for a while. It wouldn’t have mattered if he missed it. Making a play like that, that don’t matter.”
