Thanks. The pessimism police take a bit far, at times. And even if there was some criticism in my IP about Coples, so what? There are countless threads discussing how good other rookies -- e.g., Hill, Allen -- are performing in camp, so it's pretty hypocritcal if you ask me. Can't have it both ways.
The fact is, as you astutely point out, there will always be a comparison between Coples and the other rookies who were available at 16 and seen as more logical picks by many on this board, DeCastro, Ingram, Jones being the most prominent.
