I remember discussion threads in the past about Harrison Barnes vs TRoss but couldn't dig anything up.
A lot has been written about how the Raps won just one too many games in 2012, and lost out on picking Harrison Barnes, and had to take TRoss instead.
I was just wondering if anyone still feels Barnes would have been the better pick, given the overall situation in Toronto.
Barnes' numbers are all around a little better then T's (11.1 ppg. vs 9.5), and I believe Barnes may have a bit of a better upside as far as being an overall NBA small forward. ( I see Ross as a shooting guard, like an athletic Ray Allen)
However, as a shooting guard who can attack, drain 3's, dish and who plays athletic lock-down defence, as a role player, I wonder if TRoss brings better value to the Raptors as a team.
Now, I'd absolutely love to add Barnes to our roster, if it didn't involve losing any of our core.
My question for the republic is, looking back, has TRoss done enough to silence the Harrison regretters?
