    So why didn't they pick Hickson? Oh yeah, BC was still under the illusion that he could re-sign Chris Bosh.

      No Shit ! damn would have bee a great pick, he's an undersized PF but explosive and long. Kind of reminds me of Barkley without the shooting ability. Too bad BC shit the bed with JO and had throw this pick in to get rid of JO.

        And Bosh was probably leading him to believe that...

          In retrospect what was any exec thinking when 3 of the best in a draft class decided to reup in exactly the same way (3 years). Ok, one could be led to believe it was a "timing" manouever because of the cba expiry....but when CAA bought out the agents/cies soon after to control them all...red flags should have been flying. The downside became too great for a franchise like TO. But I agree that on a personal level I think BC believed CB about the "working together" promises.

            Would have, could have, should have........more hindsight bs according to some folks...instead of reflective thinking, contemplating....

              2008 offseason blunder has probably set the Raptors more back then when Bosh left the Raptors this season.

                More rear-mirror garbage

                So-fucking-what? Go to every draft and you'll find a steal that a dozen GMs didn't pick. If anything it proves that they've got an eye for talent but decided to go in a different direction. This assumes that Hickson has accomplished something/anything yet. And he hasn't. Not even close.

                  Nice player - not special - he's kind of a tweener @ 6'8 - best case scenario Paul Milsap lets rebounds more touch around the net. Ed Davis is a fair bit better IMO.

                  The guy everyone is going to regret passing on is nicolas batum ... again IMO.

                    there's no more controversy for that oneal trade now.

                    because we never would've picked hibbert.

                      Actually there is more now because had they not pulled the trigger on the trade they would have landed a player better than Hibbert or O'Neal.

                          Although we haven't seen Ed Davis play an NBA game, yet, he's got far more potential to be a better player than Hickson. Drafting Hickson might have meant that the Raptors wouldn't have traded for Amir, too. It's the butterfly effect. Just because you draft a good player doesn't mean things turn out the same, except you have that same player.

                            It's possible that Ed Davis could be better than Hickson in the future, but I think to simply state it as fact, is pure crazy.

                              If I met you half way on that point and agree there is still controversy about the trade.
