Default Draft Mistakes !!!

I was watching the draft and behind draft for Raptors on Raptors Nba TV. i watched about 3 drafts and some of the mistakes the Gm before Babcock made are worse than Babcocks mistakes. there 2 picks reallly stood out to me.

1st one :

He declined an offer from Phoenix at the 2002 draft. The offer was 20th overall pick (raptors pick) For Joe Johnson. Thats what you call a mistake. Instead he traded the 20th pick to Lakers for 27th pick and Lindsay Hunter and we picked Jefferies.

2nd One:

Well this one is not a mistake but i think it couldved been better for us if we took this offer. Clippers offered Elton Brand,Andre Miller For 4th Overall pick and salary filler (according to the person who was there). That is why Vince Carter was soo upset. (just a rumor by an insider).

The second one, we would have had a pretty good lineup.

well at the time Joe Johnson was a rookies that was traded mid-season, hell Boston chose to keep Kedrick Brown instead and no one thought much of it, no way anyone coulda seen how that'd turned out. The Hoffa pick was "wtf" right off the bat.

Hind sight is 20/20

People thought it was a huge mistake to draft Damon and Tmac.

The Raptors probly could've had a

PG- Nash
SG- Joe Johnson
SF- Tracy Mcgrady
PF- Elton Brand
C- Chris Bosh

lineup if they wanted to but no one can tell the future. If Nostradamus was a GM he would win championships on a regular basis

Default whatever ...

the raptors could have had Carter, Bryant, T-Mac, Marion & bosh Technically...there would be no need for a point guard...or Centre if all those players put up there regular stats....

the past is the past unless there is such thing as a time machine let it go...

Well, yes we can say what if the Raps had T-mac. Considering the Raps drafted him and he spent a few years playing for the Raps.

thats a lot of salary filler though...elton is a max contract and andre is up there if not max...so we would have to give up a lot of our roster..so i dunno how that woula worked out
