I've never seen the top projected picks play, only highlights...so it's hard to make a proper evaluation.
Anybody who's watched the Raptors for any significant amount last year will tell you that they need rebounding help. Their best player is saying they need help inside. If you make that priority #1 then you draft either Aldridge or Thomas.
But if BC sees that Bargnani is just too good to pass up....and could potentially (
) be the next Dirk, then you'd have to go with that.....and maybe address rebounding via free agency. I agree with BC in that the Raps are not good enough to draft needs. I say draft the best player at this stage.
In other words, I could live with either Aldridge, Thomas or Bargnani as the #1 pick.
