Dave Twardzik Award

Orlando Sentinel - Update on Fran Vazquez by

Minnesota's new President of Basketball wins this years "Dave Twardzik Award" and will be a charter member of the Dave Twardzik Hall of Fame for drafting a Spaniard he had never talked to with a high draft pick that can't see playing in the NBA into the distant future. Congratulations to David Kahn for surpassing even the great Dave Twardzik!

While we are on the subject, congratulations are in order to Otis Smith for providing Dave the opportunity to draft ZERO players for the Magic this year, thus keeping Dave's name out of the local papers.

As to Dave's greatest move -- drafting a Spaniard he had never talked to with a high draft pick that can't see playing in the NBA into the distant future -- we have an update from the Sentinel:

Don't get your hopes up that Fran Vazquez will join the Magic for the 2009-10 season, Magic fans. Vazquez, the 6-foot-10 Spaniard who spurned the Magic after he was picked 11th overall in the 2005 draft, still has another year on his contract in Europe, Magic General Manager Otis Smith said moments ago.

    Yeah, what in the world was the Minnesota GM thinking of when he drafted two point guards so early in the first round like that.

    As for Fran Vasquez, the wait continues for the Magic...

    The Magic could use Vasquez this year. But i still hold a grudge about him thumbing his nose at the Magic when they drafted him.

    Let him rot in the Euro league. I wouldn't give him the satisfaction of playing for a quality organization like the Magic, or any NBA city.
