Pros/Cons of the Draft
 
Assuming the Raptors make no other changes to the roster, what are the pros and cons of the Raptors selecting:

1. LaMarcus Aldridge
2. Adam Morrison
3. Rudy Gay
4. Andrea Bargnani
5. Marcus Williams

Adam Morrison - great white hope...
Gay - potential???
Aldrigde - game too similar to Bosh and not a true center
Williams- 1st pick??? yea rite...
Bargnani - another PF/SF???

Those are the cons...

Chamberlain 06-09-2006 10:14 PM

I didn't exactly mean with the #1 pick, I guess I worded it wrong. I tried to say something along the lines of, imagine they didn't fill any needs through trade or free agency.. what would the pros and cons of those players be on the current roster.

brwnman 06-09-2006 11:06 PM

o you meant with just a pick that doesn't have to be 1st overall??? I got confused...

Chamberlain 06-09-2006 11:42 PM

yeah thats my fault I worded it wrong.

If you want to know anything about these athletes or all about how they will play, try:

http://www.nbadraft.net

or

http://www.draftexpress.com

My pikc would either be Aldridge or Williams. More towards Aldridge for Toronto needs to fill needs and there are plenty of guards around the league that have potential.

I've been to those sites a lot. I know how they play and everything, I just wanted to get peoples opinions on how they would fit the raptors and to justify there picks as to who would be the best fit. I wasn't asking for help or anything, just trying to get a conversation started. Thanks anyways though, other people can hit those links.

LaMarcus Aldridge - Scary young frontcourt LA CB4 and CV3 - not big enough to bang with bigger centres yet
Adam Morrison - great shooting, will be fan fav, heart - can he play D? can he put up points against nba vets ?
Rudy Gay - star potential, atlethic, pure SF - attitude, is it all about money? how long will it take him to develope
Andrea Bargnani - turns into dirk in a few years, excellent shooter - or considered a first year millilic ?
Marcus Williams - solid point guard for years to come - can he step up and run a young nba team in his first year ?

I don't get how Raps fan always say that Aldridge isn't a true Centre? What era of hoops are we talking about? Name the true Centres in the NBA that aren't stiffs? Shaq and Yao? The rest who could be considered a true C are purely defensive and usually suck. Athletes like Dwight and Amare are becoming the new era C's, which is why I have NO problem with Aldridge playing C for us, or Bosh for that matter. I hate when teams play the token C for 8 mins a game, like the raps did with Hoffa.
