Back in June, Thunder beat reporter Darnell Mayberry said in his profile of Mitch McGary that the newly drafted big man didn’t fit the prototype of the usual Sam Presti draft pick, in part because McGary was suspended by the NCAA for a year after testing positive for marijuana.

Well Vice Sports today published a candid interview with McGary where the expected replacement to Nick Collison addressed the penalty, saying it was “a little harsh.” You can watch the video in its entirety below.
