  • Challenge. Can you name all of the Raptors first-round selections?

    http://www.sportsnet.ca/basketball/n...nd-draft-pick/

    I've only been a fan since 2011/12, so I couldn't name before that (except for Raptors great and Toronto Pasta Ambassador Bargs). I'm curious to see how many can get the 2008 one though!

    Thanks for reminding me re former first overall selection Andrea Bargnani..ugh. Imagine if we had Lamarcus Aldridge as our starting PF .

        Only ones I missed were Ed Davis (how?!) and Kareem Rush (I foolishly kept thinking Brandon Rush.. Ugh.).

        I'll admit though, I had to look up spelling on some. Haha

          I was able to get 14 out of 23.... but the quiz didn't load right, as it seems to be partially cut off. Usually with Sporcle quizzes, there's a timer & a give up button.

            Imagine a front court of Bosh and Aldridge. It'd be way ahead of its time and who knows, maybe we beat the Nets that year.

                Ya, I still don't understand how there's an "R" sound in his pronunciation... I think he's just messing with us. Lol

                But it's Aleksandar Radojevic that always gets me. Can never spell his name right. Lol

                  Well, if the arena announcer pronounces it right, then it's not really an "r" sound as much as it's how people who can't say r's properly (or people from Boston) pronounce their r's. To me that makes a teensy bit more sense given the spelling.
                  That is a normal collar. Move on, find a new slant.

                      Ya I was very much convinced we had never drafted anyone from North Carolina ... Lol

                      And only way I remembered about Hibbert was seeing Georgetown, and besides him I couldn't even think of anyone that went to Georgetown besides AI and Ewing. Lol

                            I missed Radojevic (had no idea on that one) and Kareem Rush (I completely forgot he was ever a Raptor). 21/23. The schools helped. I never would have been able to do it free hand with no years, etc.

                            Man they've had some crappy draft picks.

                              Ya, Rush was a tough one. He wasn't really on the Raps. We flipped him on Draft Night for Chris Jeffries and Lindsey Hunter I'm pretty sure.
