    I have decided that there is only one way to paint a positive picture on this draft and the absolutely horrible blunder that BC has, once again, made. Here it is, my new mantra:

    Draft? What draft? It never happened. We had no draft picks this year, hence there is no new player on the roster. Simple as that.
    Or you can simply wait and watch the guy play. Hey, there's a thought.

      What guy? I just checked the payroll, it's the same as it was yesterday and the day before. We had no draft pick. It's a shame because if we did I would have taken Kemba Walker.

          I'm lining up my Baltic League Pass right now. If that doesn't work, I am actually in Moscow from the fall of 2012 until spring 2013, maybe I'll skip over to Vilnius to watch him play in person.

            Actually, Walker wouldn't be on the payroll now, either. And if you're complaining that the Raptors might have to wait a year for him, I think that's a lousy argument. Or maybe you think San Antonio should have drafted Armon Gilliam instead of David Robinson because they would have had to have waited two years? I know, it's an extreme example, but the simple fact is that Valanciunas was widely considered to be the best player available, unlike Walker who lasted until 9, and the Raptors weren't going to be competing for a Championship anytime soon, anyway, so why not take the player who is expected to give you the best long term success?

              Why isn't there an option for "Happy but would of preferred another player" option? I don't mine Jonas V but I wanted Bismack.

                Biyombo is BC's gift to Jordan after the Chandler fiasco. Biyombo will be a super bust in a team that cannot score. Good luck Charlotte! Hey, you may want to read this:

                  Brian talking to McCowan on the Fan590 admitted that if Jonas was taken by Cleveland then he would have taken Biyombo. So Brian was never going to get Walker or Knight.

                    Just as it's foolish to call Valanciunas a bad pick despite not seeing him, I think it's foolish to call Biyombo a bust without watching more of him.

                      *Goes into a rage* I hate you BC. Bismack > Jonas.

                      I hate Cavs even more now.

                        Biyombo is going to become the next Hasheem Thabeet!

                          For all those who thought and still think that someone like Kawhi Leonard would be a better pick than JV, consider this. How many nanoseconds would it take San Antonio to say "yes" if Colangelo now offered JV for Leonard? Or what about Indiana, who just traded Leonard for George Hill? Do you think Colangelo would have any trouble trading JV for George Hill? People need to give their head a shake and realize that this pick wasn't just some Euro reach by Colangelo. JV is highly regarded across the NBA. Oh, and anyone who thinks that Brandon Knight or Kemba Walker would have a huge impact in their first season, go back and see how much impact players like Rondo, Westbrook, Wall, etc. had in their first year. Each of those players are arguably much higher in potential than any of the point guards that were available this year.

                            I want a trade soon. Need one. This team has to look different. Still looks the same. Need something.

                              I'm not upset that we took JV over Kawhi. I'm just upset about Kawhi because he slid so much, and it was the Spurs who finally nabbed him. The Spurs quietly had another very solid draft. Those....competent bastards. Kawhi's ceiling may not be super high (who knows?) but the Spurs wouldn't have given up Hill if they didn't feel they had a good read on his likelihood of impacting the game how they want. Meanwhile, they also drafted Cory Joseph, who can now develop into Hill's role, essentially, which is probably the right kind of guy/role for him to target. Again...competent bastards...

                                Biyombo is far more fluid an athlete than Thabeet.
