Kravitz Is Thinking the Same

Bob Kravitz is thinking the same way I do: not draft Gordon Hayward. Here’s a little tidbit of what he wrote in his column over at the Indianapolis Star:

“In some minds, this might feel like 1987 all over again, the locals clamoring for Indiana hero Steve Alford, then booing angrily when then-general manager Donnie Walsh smartly selected Reggie Miller out of UCLA. Let me put it more simply: If team president Larry Bird takes Hayward, I’m calling for his head. Immediately. Because it would be a signal that the business people have taken over the organization, and they’ve been reduced to making choices based on the number of tickets they think they can sell. You know what sells? Winning. You know what you get with Hayward? A guy who isn’t going to help you win for at least — at least — two years.”
