better shooter than W.Johnson and Q.Ross. worst case M.Peterson, best case E.Jones.
Here's what I see...a solid rotational SG, part time SF with very good athleticism, can execute a pick & pop, hit clutch FTs, and above average basketball IQ. Our team had no other player last year suitable enough for a pick and pop, and only our PG was the only guy who can do so consistently. Casey needs that Jason Terry or DeShawn Stevenson type of player to cover the front court.
All-Star or not, this team needs a player to be the fan-favorite lifer because these players will be the glue-men for the backcourt. They will pass to the open man, see the and pass to the open cutter, be ready and nail open shots & corner 3s, stay on their man on defense on whatever circumstances and be a 85%+ FT shooters in tight ball games.
How many BBall IQ players have we had last year since Parker and Garbo?
He did have a very solid workout with Toronto.
Ross + Jonas will make this team look a whole lot different that's for sure. Now the Raptors have outside shooting threat and and inside scoring threat which will space things out.
Well, his stats are better than other big name guys. Although, it's not the ACC or Big 12. It is still the Pac 12.
Welcome, Terrence Ross. Prove me wrong. Reminds me of Ed Davis when he talks.
Just a question, is there an article out there pertaining to BC looking to sign Nash? (I haven't been following religiously) Otherwise, we'll have to see how this Ross guy pans out. I remember everyone was up in arms over the Jonas pick and it turned out that we may have made a good choice in that selection. I know T-Ross isn't a household name brand guy or gushing 'potential' or even that 'wow factor'. But let's see how this guy does on the court. He looks legit from the various clips provided. I mean, I hope he contributes right away!
Here is one article that states that Nash is interested in Toronto along with two other team: http://www.foxsportsarizona.com/06/2...04&feedID=3801
With all the hate for the pick, I now love it.
When this many people are pissed off, it was the right move. Group think is seldom right - in the end, and that is what matters.
Looking forward to see what happens July 1st though 11th.
Hopefully something bigger than Nash.
On a related note, I would love to have been in the Raps war room to hear their SG comparisons, to get the real story behind their preference of Ross over Rivers and Lamb. I don't necessarily disagree, would just be interested to know their true reasoning.
I'm excited about this pick.. I picked Ross as a sleeper guy that would go later in the draft, but after we saw Lillard, Waiters and Barnes get taken it became more and more apparent that Colangelo would have to reach a bit to get his 2. I had wanted Austin Rivers but I'm happy with Ross.
Big welcome and I love the pick. I said some time ago that I had a feeling TRoss would be the best player out of this draft in a few years and hope to get him. To all the Johnny-come latelies: welcome aboard!
I think he can be a good fit.
Just for the sake of throwing something out there....If we sign Nash that puts Jose on the block for sure, does Ross make DeMar expendable, what would a package of Jose and DeMar fetch? Makes room for Barbosa to come back as well.
