And if it turns out that the guy we picked is not as good as the 2nd or subsequent picks…..then everytime we play that team, there’s always gonna be some article in a newspaper saying how the Raptors *****ed up bigtime by not selecting that player. Everytime…..for the next 12 years.
The only way to avoid that, regardless of who you pick is to pick the best player for your team. Let's assume Bargnani is the best fit here because for whatever reason Aldridge puts on 80 pounds and can't run with the Raps. Aldridge could put up big numbers but not be able to play in our system. If the Raps can have team success, then the rest won't matter.
You don't hear too much about Detroit not selecting Chris Bosh do you? That's because even thought they chose a stiff, their GM was still able to create a successful team. It's important that Brian Colangelo builds a successful team and doesn't draft a bust... as long as whoever we draft goes on to have a successful career, it won't matter which one we pick.
