Julian Benbow destroys his piece on Boston draft snubs.
Paul Pierce and Rajon Rondo fell later in the first round than they expected. Glen Davis was drafted in the second round. Marquis Daniels wasn’t drafted at all. Even Doc Rivers and Danny Ainge were second round draft picks.
And they all took the snubs the right way.
“It molds you into the player that you need to be,’’ Davis said. “You can take that information and you can take that experience and go whatever way you want to. You can feel sorry for what you didn’t do in college. You can ask, ‘Why didn’t people draft you?’ Or you can take the information and say this is going to be my fuel to get to where I need to go and show these people that when you passed me up, you made a huge mistake.’’
Luke Harangody, I hope you’re listening.
