Aldridge also is good friends with Bosh, and Kelly admitted that could factor in the team's decision-making.
I hate the tone the article takes. As if it's even a decision. It's not a decision! Aldridge will be a near-all-star at worst; Bargnani is the most certain and obvious bust ever. Not only that but Bargnani is such a horrible fit for the Raptors that there should be a new word added to the English language to describe it that would mean "really, really, really, really ****ing horrible."
If Colangelo picks Bart over Aldridge... wow. Just wow. If you decide Aldridge will be a bust, fine, TRADE THE PICK. But even if Bart turns into Dirk Nowitzski overnight he still doesn't fit and he still doesn't solve any team needs. And they have a LOT of needs.
