No offense but this is a dumb thread and some research needs to be done before you group all european (or international) players' defence on par with Bargs.

Noah, Batum, and Kirilenko are some of the best defenders out there. Kanter is the biggest banger in the draft. He has knee issues, but that's for the Dr's to figure out. Just look at Blair.

I would be little more worried about Jonas Valanciunas.

Turkey has been producing some solid bigs out there lately. Did you watch the worlds? Asik and Erden are gonna be good. Iilyasova is solid.

You mentioned the Araujo draft. Hell yeah it was terrible. Is it cause he was Brazilian? Come on man! How would you rate Nene, Tiago and Verajao?

You take the best player available. Period.
