They get to have dunk contests in practice with Gay, Ross, and DeRozan.

Gay hasn't proven much.

Still a second tier star in the league. Borderline all-star level.

The Raptors could potentially make the Playoffs and screw us out of a good draft pick all because of this guy. Fucking Rudy Gay man!

Contenders? No

8th seed to be eliminated in the first round? Most likely if they keep it up. The Bucks are not that great.

Either way, step in the right direction.

They are nothing close to contenders but Gay has proven himself to be much more valuable than Calderon and Davis. The question now is how much will Gay improve now that he's been given the keys to a franchise.

Rudy Gay isn't even an All-star. He's a 6'9" small forward with all the tools and ball handling but settles for jumpers. Low IQ if you ask me.

He also only gets to the line for 3 or 4 freethrows a game; pretty useless. Not to mention he's an OK (subpar) shooter, ballhandler, passer, etc. I'm right until he proves me wrong.
