Yes, the only differcne would be where thepoick was. it still would be a 1st round pick.
Look, if you don't think Griffin cost them 3 1st rounders--one that they had and were going to probably use in 2012 anyway, but one nevertheless...plus two more in the future--then we would go around and around on this all day and not get anywhere.
No big deal. I guess it's be different if boty were 1st rounders, then you could say one player plys 2 1st for the other. But it was not.
