Why So Many Europeans Drafted?

Okay, this is short.

I'm upset about the number of foreign players taken in the draft. I counted 14 in both rounds and that turns out to be about 23%. I'm not trying to deny that there are some good players in Europe, but there should be some limit. I mean, I think some just-as-good stateside players were pushed out of the draft because of that, and some of those drafted from there will stay in Europe for a couple more years playing for their old teams. There was plenty of players stateside who could play right away and make an impact, players like Josh Heytvelt who held Thabeet to about 12 points and John Bryant of Santa Clara who led the nation in rebounding and averaged over 18 points per game. I think Bryant is a better rebounder than Jon Brockman. Just saying.
