    Nobody mentions Manu Ginobli's name when comparing Stauskas...

    Only if he works on that first step and manu's trademarked euro step he is a carbon copy of Ginobli in my eye!

    Raptors played well with 2Pat's skillset on the floor and with Amir's injury issues I think he can find a place... replace psycho T at the very least.

    I dont see body fat as a big issue with him. He gets a nutritionist and he could get down quick.

    You only have to look at James McAdoo to see how much you can fall if you wait too long. He was a lottery pick his freshman year and withdrew from the draft. He is barely being mentioned as a second round pick.

    He does, wouldn't be too mad if we get him with our last pick, always loved centres that can block shots. And he's really athletic too, my comparision - an athletic Aaron Gray

    Yup, he can become the White Panther version 2.0

    Honestly though, he is actually worth using the last pick on. He seems like a mobile big man with possession of the ability to hit the mid range jumper. The fact that he blocks shot is a plus.

    A low cost choice for a backup big.

    One of the reasons I like him so much is how quickly he has changed his body and his game. In 1 year he went from a pure catch and shoot shooter who was out of shape to a guy who can handle, pass, iso, shoot off the dribble and could dunk on people. That skill to add things to his game is why I think he is going to be a sure fire guy at the NBA level because he will adapt.

    (compare that to everyone's favorite, DD, who has yet to add a three pointer in 5 YEARS)

    I would take Bachynski at 37. Mobile big men wont fall that far.

    Fun video on Canadians in the the NBA and how the average Canuck has very little interest in or knowledge of basketball:

    Don't take a Kenny Mayne segment as hard fact. His segments are in similar vein to the Jerry D stuff on the Score, it's just meant to make you laugh for the most part.

    That is sad.

    I can see MU really trying to get Elfrid Payton on draft day. Has athleticism just like Bledsoe but more skilled, and more defensive potential imo. Saying this because MU tried to trade for Bledsoe last year.

    Terrible news about Austin. I now feel bad for calling him soft and mediocre would be awful news at any stage, but to receive it four days from the draft would be devastating.

    Yoooo he is looking really good! His form is great! He seems very mobile and athletic and we all know how well he blocks and alters shots. He will not be there at 59. If he is these GM's are crazy.

    He also finishing with contact in a lot of the clips. If he is for some reason there at 59 we have to get him. No question. Get it done Masai!

    Really unfortunate. All the best to him.

    The time literally couldn't be worse for him since he was a projected draft pick (albeit a second round one). Hope he can bounce back from this life wise. Even worse given he already managed to get around being partially blind. You don't just do that if you don't enjoy the game.

    He's just gotta be crushed.
