    Couldn't be happier with the draft. Didn't think he was going to fall this far, what a draft.

    I do remember some ppl predicting this guy as our 2nd pick. Hopefully that's a good thing, as in thought out far in advance by Chris Grant's devious mind.

    I don't understand why they picked a guard with #19. you skip big with #1, should have gotten one of the remaining bigs.

    Good situation either way. We can keep him or trade him for T Rob probably, and I like either move.

    Sounds good. Cavs basically have drafted 4 guys with defensive liabilities. Varejao and Thompson have their work cut out for them.

    Yessss!!!1!!!!!!111!11!

    Favorite pick of the draft, I wanted this guy so bad! We badly needed a shooter and a euro on this team! Badass name and hilariously awesome english as well

    At the request of multiple users I will have a Sergey Karasev Cavaliers avatar up shortly for free use

    Great stroke all the way out to three.
    Great court vision and passer.

    Re: #19: Sergey Karasev

    We desperately needed scoring and size on the perimeter off the bench. Karasev can play the 2 or 3 and hopefully be our Manu type guy. We already have AV, Zeller, and TT, plus Bennett will likely see time at PF. If Speights is back, that pretty much eats up all he minutes. We had nothing at SF last year, so we took who was the best perimeter player left.

    When he fills out he is a forward.

    You can usually count on one hand the amount of players in each draft who are able to come in and play sustainable defense in the NBA. The fact that a college player needs to work on his defense shouldn't surprise anyone. in fact, you should usually expect it.

    Re: #19: Sergey Karasev

    Such a fan. I hope we keep him. I really like him as a shooter/passer as a solid scorer either off the bench or off the bench. Maybe a Toni Kukoc or a Paul Pierce.

    Heres a video I found that shows off his underrated athleticism

    [video=youtube;HOt3xeJgwcg]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HOt3xeJgwcg[/video]

    He throws down some pretty sick dunks around 2:50 onward
