   2012 NBA Draft Diary
2012-06-30

Pick 20: The NBA draft usually attracts some form of xenophobia, which this year's broadcast has so far lacked. But an opportunity presents itself when the first truly international player, Evan Fournier, is picked by Denver in an apparent draft-and-stash. Denver once took a foreign bust in the first round, so it follows that because Skita was bad, so will be Fournier. Danilo Gallinari? Danilo Schmallinari. Europe sucks. Or something like that.

Fran Frascilla finally has a shiny new toy to play with, but isn't especially fawning of Fournier, other than to cite his potential. This is fair enough since Fournier, while thoroughly projectable, is the rawest player picked so far other than perhaps Harkless and Drummond.

A group of French people are shown. They are promptly booed for being French.

Note: Non-US teams that the player has played for are, unless stated otherwise, from the top division in that nation. If a league or division name is expressly stated, it's not the top division. The only exceptions to this are the rare occasions where no one league is said to be above the other, such as with the JBL/BJ League split in Japan.
