Missing something.....
 
u think the raps are like books with no book ends??? with the point guard situation and the centre situation.....

i would either like them drafting aldrige or marcus williams and depending on who they draft prizzy or m.banks

We are in the hands fo an excellent GM now. I'm sure he will take care of it all by next season or halfway through next season. I have faith.

the bulls of the 90's never had a good PG or C.
They did just fine

^^^ uhh...correct me if im wrong..but they did have those guys right? number 23? and 33? i forgot their names.
even so, they had decent bigs in langley, kukoc, rodman..we have bosh and charlie, need a third!

Rodman Was a Tuff Big Man

Hey wouldn't it be great if somehow we could get Marcus Williams AND LaMarcus Aldridge? very young team that can be a top seed in years.

uhh...correct me if im wrong..but the question was regarding our pg & c positions?

longley is a piece of crap, just look at how he played in phoenix

Hey, 420 is on to something. We don't NEED a 1 or 5; all we gotta do is find another Mike and Pip, and then sign a Horace Grant type and a lanky do-it-all euro fella, annnd maybe a Steve Kerr or Craig Hodges and one of the best rebounders of all time? OOOOH, and a coach with a cool nickname like zen-master.

Center? PFF! Who needs a center?!

We'll just re-make the bulls. Brilliant!

Sure, you can win without a great center or point, but only if you have other great players to supplant their numbers/skill set. Ultimately, the Raptors are pretty weak everywhere, the 4 spot excepted. So errybody is right: The raps are missing several somethings at several positions. BC will need to accumulate much more than a decent center and point guard, and the process will take a few years.

But we've got a good start; it should be fun to watch.

langley > any center we currently have!

yes you original statement was about the pg n c situation, then you brought in the example of the bulls in the 90's. bad example really. they have two of the finest players in nba history, which is why their lack of centers n pointguards were hidden. if you can find the next jordan and a player who'll ply a second role but is eqaully great, then ya..WHO CARES ABOUT A CENTER AND A PG! :banghead:

420 All-Star 06-21-2006 11:40 PM

i'm not saying we don't need C or PG.
just saying there have been examples of teams that can be successful without being very strong in those positions. i'm sure there are other teams aside from the bulls that played well without a C or PG.

"langley > any center we currently have! "

not anymore! rasho!!!!
i can see him as a longley 2nd coming haha
