That's what you get for rooting against your team all year long, cheering for Ls and hoping to luck out in the draft
oh but we should rebuild through the draft, we will be so set in a couple of years of tanking
I think we should take an honest look at Kemba Walker. Trading the pick would be good, yes. But Kemba has shown he can play in the clutch and that is what we need. A good clutch player who won't hesitate to get to the net.
Immediate post-lottery pick with little basis: Jonas Valanciunas
I know little about him other than what I've read and the couple highlight reels (where everyone looks good). He intrigues me as a young prospect that should be able to play C. Who knows, maybe in 2-3 years, him and Ed Davis are one of the best frontcourts in the league?
I know it sucks we didn't even get top 3, but it will atleast be exciting to see who we get, top three we knew what we were getting, now we got looks at Kemba, knight, biSMACK or someone else. I really don't feel like trading it unless we get something really good. I think this could be exciting, but I am bummed we never won.
kemba, knight or another season of watching 1 or 2 games a month for me
Ya looks like one of those two. I'm just glad we didn't drop to 6th or they wouldn't even be there.
2.Min-Could be either Kanter or Williams
3.Uta-Whoever Min doesn't take
4.Cle-If they take Irving 1st, no reason to take Knight or Walker. Maybe Val or Biyombo?
5.Tor-Knight or Walker
At least we're not NJ or the Clippers. How shitty must they feel today. Sure NJ got Williams but they gave up A LOT. I've said it before, but I think Kemba's going to thrive in the NBA. His game is much more suited for it than in college. He'll give us leadership, a winning attitude, ability to break down any defender, take the last shot. Even DeMar wants us to pick him:
Dime: Heading into the NBA Draft, what players excite you? Who do you think would fit in with your current Raptors squad?
DD: It’s tough to say, but I like Kemba Walker’s game. I played against him in high school. Just the way he plays, I think he’ll make a major impact in the League using screen and rolls and being able to shoot and break down guards and everything. I like Kyrie Irving too, he’ll definitely be big. But I think there are just a handful of guys though.
