I'm not saying that at all. I'm saying Colangelo should take who ever is at the top of his draft board. Whether or not Chad Ford has that correct means nothing to me. I don't care who the player is at the end of the day as much as that the player has the most talent/upside out of what's left in the class.
Last year I loved the idea of the Raptors getting Kemba Walker but you know what? I'm not an NBA scout, I don't do that for a living. I know Kemba Walker's game fairly well because I watched him many times but I didn't watch the other 29 players who went in the draft many times. So when #5 came up and the Raptors took JV I couldn't argue the pick. Colangelo came out and said he took the best player available and this was with three young big men already on roster. I didn't care then either. All I kept reading was how JV might be the best prospect in the draft. That's what got me on board with the pick. Colangelo made the most of his opportunity instead of trying to "get by" with his opportunity.
I guess i was a bit vague in my argument, my argument should have initially been - if there's a draft pick highly talented enough to fill the raps needs, should they still go for the BPA? A prelude to Katman's question, hehehe.

I'm told several of the draft picks will eventually get married
If recent history has created a blue print of what championship front courts look like:
B. Wallace/R. Wallace
Duncan/fill in the blank
O'neal/fill in the blank
I would say you need one scoring specialist and one defensive specialist (with the exception of Duncan and O'neal who did both for their team....ah they don't make bigs like they use to). With that in mind perhaps two bigs in the front court that are more in the mold of defensive specialists (Drummond/JV) is not a great idea. Not that they can't be really good together and not that one can't be a really good interior scorer, but from what see right now Bargnani might be the better option to pair up with either of JV or Drummond.
From Draft Express on Davis:
While Davis plays a simple role for Kentucky, he's arguably the most efficient offensive player in college basketball, converting an amazing 67% of his 2-point attempts (which ranks in the top 15 in our database in the past decade) and turning the ball over on just 9% of his possessions. He's one of the best finishers we've seen in recent years, making nearly 80% of his non-post-up attempts around the basket.

Rome wasn't built in one off season, nor should this team be. We want to put a contender together, not just make the playoffs. You have to ask yourself if the team we're building has the parts and talent to beat Chicago, Miami, OKC etc..
