    What I find the most frustrating for me about BC is that he is an above average drafter IMO. He makes better decisions when it comes to the draft than when it comes to signing free agents or giving contract extensions. YET he loves trading away his draft picks, and the players he drafts, (with the exception of Bargs). This is not optimal.

    What the hell does this have to do with your argument? Do you just hate Bargs so much that you've just got prejudice for all Italians now?

    I was referring to Datome not AB. I decline to particiapate in your race baiting. The point was that BC should focus more on NCAA players. If you can get any player of any nationality that will bring championship calibre basketball to Raptors I am all for it....I just think Datome is not that guy. BC probably was on vacation in Italy and made it appear he was hard at work.

    It is almost as though he cannot help himself....

    I detect snark. I didn't say don't judge them. I said go easier. If you get a pick between 10 - 30...you have a CHANCE of drafting a guy that can come off your bench and maybe start if he improves. If you draft 30 - 60, you MIGHT MIGHT MIGHT get a guy that can crack your roster and develop into a rotational piece. A top ten pick should net you an eventual starter/6th man. You could draft the next Michael Jordan and he could blow out his knee in summer league or a rec game. You could accidently land on Isiah Thomas at 60. Colangelo as a GM with the picks he had, does very well in the draft.

    DeRozan/Davis/Valanciunas/Ross/Acy being the last five picks.

    Even when you get the first pick there are no guarantees whatsoever. The reason Bargnani is so frustrating is because he has the talent and body to put up 24 pts and snag 10 boards a game while simultaneously opening up lanes for players by stretching defenses.

    In agreement....BC has made some good draft picks but has made some horrible FA singings that often lead to trading away young talent or taking on bad contracts.
