No way. Everyone was saying Darko was a better prospect. Plus he was a Center. It wasn't just the Euro thing, it was the "young, skilled big man" thing. As was said, Denver was planning on taking Darko over Melo if they had the choice.
In all seriousness anyway, shouldn't we be talking about Dumars taking Darko over Wade anyway? Re-do that draft and Wade goes #2 by a mile.
True, but like @PMatic said, hindsight is 20/20
