I heard that Omar Cook can't shoot from outside worth a lick. And in the N.B.A., if you're a guard (point guard or shooting guard), you have to able to shoot because these days defenses are so sophisicated in rotation if they double team that they'll leave you open and if they play you straight up, they'll sag of off you daring you to shoot the ball. Also if you can't shoot from the outside, that negates you're ability to drive to the basket because the defensive man already has a step advantage on you because he's laying back.

And Denver's not exactly a great team.

I don't know exactly what year this first-rounder that Denver traded to the Magic is supposed to be but to bad teams, first rounders are gold. That could end up being a high pick for the Magic in the future.

ADVANTAGE: Orlando Magic
