    Default Demar DeRozan vs. Bargnani

    Who should we build around, Demar "Heir Canada" DeRozen or Andrea "Il Mago" Bargnani? This is not a question about who is a better player today or who should our number one option be next season, it's which piece should BC look at and say, "that's the guy we're going to try to compliment and build a team around". There is also the option of other if you want someone else like Ed Davis or maybe Amir.
    I think DeRozen is a better piece to build around, especially since we already have the sort of guys we'd need in Amir, Weems and Ed Davis. I want to ave the youngest most athletic team in the league come next season and I want the reins given to DeRozen.

    you can't build around a 2 guard but that doesn't mean you can't make him your franchise player.

    His name was Michael Jordan. He was a pretty good 2 guard as well.

    You need both to be dominate. Look at the lakers if they didn't have the scoring, defense and rebounding of Gasol the lakers would be a 7-8 team in the west. CHampionship teams have three stars a guard star, a power foward/centre star and a defensive star. You must find three pieces to build around too won a nba championship. So I hope toronto builds around three stars in those positions. I see DeMar as the slasher scorer, barngani your do it everything big man, and maybe amir and sonny develop into defensive stoppers. We need some other pieces and hope these guys develop.

    I think we build around both of them... as u can see from the celtics they build around 3 guys. We had a number 1 guy last year and look where that got us.

    Neither of them has shown anything to be considered a Franchise player Yet.

    AB was under the shadow of CB4 and this year is the year that he can come out and show us what he is really made of.

    DD also did not show anything spectacular in his rookie season. It will be up to him to come in this year and elevate his game to the next level.

    Right now, in Toronto's roaster, there is no real super star, franchise player.
