    Default Is JV a potential franchise player?

    With all the accolades JV has gotten in Europe, and the hype that surrounds his NBA debut, do you think JV has the potential to be the Raps franchise player?

    Do you think with JV as a cornerstone, the Raps can be a contender?

    Yes. I think JV and A.Davis have similar strengths and ability to impact the game on the defensive end. I personally prefer to have that defensive anchor at the C position as opposed to PF, so that's a small advantage in JV's favor. I look forward to being able to compare these two players against common opponents next season.

    the reason is he is too hard to market....his face on all the posters will frighten the children and attract hillbillies from the outskirts to come and see games. The last thing you want is people from Aylmer driving in for games

    hahaha Davis does look creepy.
    The unibrow seems like it will move if you stare at it long enough.

    Ha. Aylmer. Never thought I'd see that town name dropped on this forum. Plus, the tractors would really slow the Gardiner worse then it already is for home games

    Umm we had an ostrich/velociraptor as the face of the franchise here for 6 seasons. I don't think marketing will be much of an issue here.

    Where did you hear/read that? Source??? Or just your speculation?

    Nevermind, I should have kept reading before replying. lol

    You mean you can't envision Devlin's next go-to phrase catching on... "POW goes the unibrow! Another thunderous dunk from Davis!"???

    all the kids with unibrows would finally have a hero and somebody to make them realize people will hate on it but it doesn't even matter because it wont change them!

    To me "Franchise Players" are Kobe, Lebron, Durant, Dwight, and had been Duncan. Can Jonas be an allstar sure, will he be a player described as being one of the best ever, I am not so sure on that. I am hoping for a Andrew Bogut/Brad Daugherty type player. Not really a franchise player, but one hell of a piece moving forward.

    My "Yes" answer had less to do with the thread's title and more to do with the last line of tbihis' original message:

    JV is tossed under the bus by multiple posters in here by the end of December 2012. Book it.

    Only because Ed Davis and Aaron Gray are trapped under it and the only Raptor with super human strength to lift it off is Jonas

    No doubt.

    The hype machine is churning and the expectations are growing. I feel sorry for the kid as the weight of the franchise is about to be heaped on him instead of excercisig some patience to see what they have first.

    We're all going to be horribly disappointed when big Val doesn't average a quadruple double as a rookie
