You are probably right about him not knowing who to pick. In those cases my philosophy is different than going big...my philosophy is to go with the best available player. Whether big, small or in the middle, I would go with the most athletically gifted player available.
I still think a great pick for the Warriors would have been Rodney Carney. I thought he would have fit into this system well and flourished unlike what he has done in Philly. I know there is a log jam of players like Dunleavy, Pietrus and even Barnes at that same position, but I think Carney would have been a better pick that O'Bryant.
