On Mitch McGary testing positive for marijuana and heading to the NBA
McGary did develop a nice short-range jumper and does run the floor well for his size. But he isn't going to appear as massively big in the NBA as he did in the Big Ten. It's unlikely he will have much impact in the league until he becomes much more refined. That isn't going to happen for awhile, or if ever. He would benefitted greatly coming to Michigan, and the Wolverines would have benefitted from having him back, obviously.
Testing positive for weed isn't going to help McGary fly up the draft board, and this is one of the best and deepest drafts in years.
Amazing how one bad decision can take a logical ascent and throw it right out the window, turning what should have been a brilliant college to "flash in the pan" status.
My column. The biggest issue for the Red Wings is the Bruins are simply much better: http://www.theoaklandpress.com/sports/20140424/biggest-issue-for-red-wings-is-simply-the-bruins-are-better-pat-caputo-says
