I want him here thats no secret but now Bargani is starting to impress me but i still want him. It sounds like he would like to play for Toronto Raptors.

Somebody should send this clip to that dumbass reporter who wrote that he didn't want to play in Canada.

I stand corrected. This guy would look good in a Raptor uniform.

The #1 pick is shaping up to be between Aldridge and Bargnani. :pimp:

I want either Aldridge or Gay. Please god not Morrison.

When I heard Aldridge, I thought of:

I would be happy with either Aldridge and Bargnani, though I'm starting to lean more towards Bargnani...

Why is that though. We are too loaded at the PF unless we for some reason trade charlie V or Bosh. Otherwise we still won't have a god damn centre.

Zalendar 06-17-2006 12:42 PM

Aldridge's position is also PF, but due to his height and the lack of Centers people are saying he is a center. But since Bargnani can shoot from outside, he isn't.

In shoes.
Aldridge 6-11 234
Bargnani 7-1 249

Bargnani is taller, heavier, and prob more athletic than Aldridge, has a better outside game, and from what I hear has been working hard on his post game. Though, I'm sure Aldridge is better in the post at this time.

Aldridge prob is a better defender, 'cause apparently Bargnani is a little lost on defense.

Like I said, I would be happy with either of them. I think they are both going to be good players. I just think that Bargnani will be the better choice.

Chamberlain 06-17-2006 01:28 PM

I've gone from absolutely hating the idea of drafting Bargnani to him being maybe my top choice. I was really pro-Aldridge at first, but this news coming out about his athleticism has got me wondering. I know he can improve on it but I thought he was already on a high level of athleticism. Adam Morrison continues to impress me, and there aren't any really negatives about him besides his defense, and it recent workouts Brandon Roy has said that he was a better defender than he ever thought, real scrappy. Rudy Gay is full of potential and is very athletic, and he's improving his offensive game at a high pace apparently. I was stuck choosing between those 3, but I'm getting a lot more info on Bargnani lately, he's almost 2 inches taller than i thought he was and about 25 pounds heavier than I thought, he's playing really well in a very competitive league in Europe, and scouts from all sorts of teams and and websites are claiming that he is the real deal. So as of now I guess I have 11 days to figure out who I want the newest Raptor to be, it won't be easy.

A Roc 23 06-17-2006 02:43 PM

Gay, Bargnani, Alridge or Morrison. At this point I would like any of those 4 guys. I feel very good about this draft because BC is in charge and he obviously knows talent.
