They had David Thorpe on as a guest to discuss his redraft that he just put out and there were 2 things today that caught my attention: First, he mentions that, outside of the playoffs, teams pretty much take a whole off-season to catch up to scouting on players. A lot of posters said this last year, but it seemed to be ignored or disregarded. This should put to rest the idea that teams were really gameplanning for Monta last season. This comes up about 34 minutes in while discussing Tyreke Evans. The main thing he says is about Ekpe Udoh at about 40 minutes. "In my next re-draft, I'd be surprised if he's not top 5 as long as he's getting playing time. Udoh has a chance to be one of the best 3 players in this class." He goes on to say that he could also not, but this still really caught my attention.
