It really seems to me we worry about things that in the overall scheme of things mean nothing. Show me a list like this at the conclusion of the season. OK.

Madmartigan,

Actually the stats are for the regular season and don't include the playoffs. Still a great season for Wagner.
So, it now comes out that he missed multiple tackles last year.

It's been a long time since the NBA draft was about players who were good enough "right now". With the exception of maybe two special players each year, the NBA draft is about potential.
JaVale McGee comes to mind as a good example.
