The Denver Nuggets selected French shooting guard Evan Fournier with the 20th overall selection of the 2012 NBA Draft and, well, the Denver Post's Mark Kiszla absolutely hates the pick. Not that that should be surprising to anyone.â†µ
As Deadspin notes, Kiszla hates the pick because Fournier is foreign-born. Keep rolling your eyes and move on.â†µ
Fournier will likely spend a couple of years over in France and then make a break for the NBA. Maybe he is a hit, maybe he isn't. But it won't be because he isn't an American.
