Remember Last Year's Draft?
Charlie Villenueva picked by the Raptors.

Gerald Green falling to 16.

Danny Granger falling to 17.

I think we are in for some surprises tomorrow.

Yeah there will definetly be a couple of shockers to say the least. In such a wide open draft though, I think we're all expecting it, but still, some things will happen that are gonna cause these boards to go nuts.

Danny Granger falling to 17.


Don't remind me...

Ya last year it was insane. I still rememeber the shock when Babcock picked Villenueva. Everyone was like wtf.

Kiss Murder 06-28-2006 12:26 AM

I remember 2 years ago when Babcock picked Hoffa.


GMs - :roll:

Raptor fans - :wtf:

Billy King & Philadelphia - :bowdown:

Fans around the world, including orphans - :eek:

To be perfectly honest, Raptors fans should really applaud Babcock for trading Carter for whatever he did... because this way, we were able to get Villanueva... I think if we don't, then we might be taking Joey Graham at 7 instead of 16... I think if we don't have those two first round picks, we were going to pick Granger/Graham/Green/Wright at 7... thanks Babcock...

James White will be a steal.

Kiss Murder 06-28-2006 12:30 AM

Defected?...No...Smoke stacks with a mock..
I haven't heard much of Joey Graham.

Is he a good player? Any signs of potential?

TheGreatNumber8 06-28-2006 12:31 AM

He's okay,didn't play that much.

Kiss Murder 06-28-2006 12:32 AM

I thought Joey Graham and Antoine Wright would put up some numbers as rookies.

Both proved me wrong. :ohwell:

This will probably be a make or break year for him. He finished off the season pretty well, let's see if he can carry it on next season.

Chamberlain 06-28-2006 12:33 AM

He played okay at times last year, but not great. He does have the potential to be a great defender and a decent offensive player.

brwnman 06-28-2006 12:34 AM

I think he tries defensively, but he ain't that good... honestly, I really expected him to be better than he was...

Sham 06-28-2006 12:35 AM

Everyone expected more from Graham and not much from Villenueva.

Pretty ironic how things actually turned out...

GoRapz 06-28-2006 12:36 AM

oh man, i remember last year when the raptors drafted Charlie Villanueva. The board went crazy! including myself..the whole front page was filled with people either laughing at the raptors, or raptor fans hating rob babcock. One fan, if I remember, it was Orealius, even said he quit being a Raptor fan.

Crazy times.
