In this age of YouTube highlight reels, college sports channels and March Madness over-saturation, it is easy to see why now, more than ever, many fans think they know more than NBA front offices.

Here is the thing: While executives make some truly head-scratching decisions from time to time, even the worst get a few things right, and the rest and especially the best, spend countless hours scouring the world for the brightest young hoops talent.

The outrage to Toronto’s stunning selection of Brazilian Bruno Caboclo 20th overall at the NBA Draft on Thursday was predictable — and hilarious. Caboclo may or may not pan out, and he certainly will take time to make an impact, according to those who know him and have seen him play.
