    What about Jerome Moiso? The bug-eyed big man with the lefty touch.

    I'd take Moiso over Bargnani

    Okay new list: Top 10 7-footers in Raptors history:

    1. Kevin Willis
    2. Andrea Bargnani
    3. Rasho Nesterovic
    4. Aaron Gray
    5. Hakeem Olajuwon
    6. Zan Tabak
    7. Loren Woods
    8. Eric Montross
    9. Mamadou N'Diaye
    10. Alexis Ajinca

    Those who didn't make the cut: Aleksandar Redothepick, Ed Stokes, Garth Joseph, Benoit Benjamin, Solomon Alabi, Nate Huffman, Primoz Brezec, Patrick O'Bryant

    One can argue that this list can also be used as a manifesto on why Raptors should stay away from 7 footers.

    This still isn't as fun as talking about scrubs....I was able to list 10 Cs of various scrubbiness and still leave off guys like Patrick O'Bryant, Solomon Alabi, Alexis Ajinca, as someone else noted, Aleks Radojevic, and countless others...Really, it gets hard to keep thinking of scrub bigs the Raps have had, because there are just too many. (That's why I appreciate having a prospect like JV so much)

    And in the biggest mistake of all time, I can't believe I had that list, and that Yogi Stewart wasn't on it...my bad.
    you also forgot to mention almost unmentionable due to their extraordinary forgetability players like Dan O'Sullivan, Mark Baker, Clifford Rozier, and Brad Lohaus

    I'll admit to being a Primo Brezec fan. He never got a fair shake from the Raps and could have produced for us. No argument with Kevin Willis being #1. Guy was a pro's pro.

    I never wanted Brezec to leave the team. The awesome hilarity of his interviews far outweighed any on-court deficiencies he had

    Here's a classic of Primo from when he was newly traded to the Raptors:

    "Listen to Primoz Brezec speak English and you will notice something quite unique. Brezec certainly has a grasp of the language; however, he speaks a fluent “gangster-like” slang, complimented by his Slovenian accent.

    So why does the Raptor’s newest player sound like Snoop Dogg’s European brother? According to fellow Slovenian Rasho Nesterovic, this can be attributed to where he started his NBA career.

    “[Your English] depends on where you start in the NBA,” said Nesterovic. “I started in Minnesota, he started in Indiana. That’s a pretty tough organization to pick up English.”

    According to several sources, Primoz used the art of movies and rap music to master the language. In a recent interview, head coach Sam Mitchell was laughing at his newest player’s style of English.

    “Everything starts with gangsta and ends with pimp.” Mitchell said.“I don’t know who he was around or what movies he was watching [but] I don’t think my name is coach any more or Sam. It’s gangsta.”

    So what did Brezec have to say about his new head coach?

    “Sam’s gangsta too, man,” said Brezec. “He’s not scared, he trusts his players … he doesn’t take [anything] from anybody. If you do something wrong, I don’t have problem if you cuss me out … that’s how it should be.”


    ~~

    Any player that refers to his coach as gangsta is awesome. Any 7 foot Euro white dude that does it, is legendary.

    This isn't a "top 10" list. It's just a list....
