Ty Lawson Drafted by Minnesota, Headed to Denver


With the eighteenth pick in the draft, Minnesota picked their third straight point guard, as a proxy for the Nuggets, who picked him up in exchange for a draft pick down the road. Lawson appears to have been selected to be the anti-Chauncey Billups, to spell him and run an entirely different style of offense. If the Nuggets can run both Billups' deliberate half-court style and Lawson's faster, Carolina pace, they'll be a tough team to counter.

Also, George Karl finally got somebody to help him make fun of Dahntay Jones come March. Good for you, George.
