Check about the 9 minute mark, TP discusses with Bill Simmons.

Parker said the coach and the GM both wanted him but the President (Red Auerbach) changed his mind at the last minute. They drafted Joe Forte instead. He apparently worked out with them 2x before hand.

Add to the list of what ifs..

I'm a big tar heels fan and was pumped about them drafting forte.... Shows what I know.

I should have learned after Eric Montross not to put loyalty over player evaluations.
