    Default Championship - Drummond vs. Rivers

    Austin Rivers defeats Harrison Barnes and faces Drummond in the championship!


    Well, like it or not, this tournament has come down to two guys that I would guess many of us would not have chosen as ideal fits for the Raptors next year. It is pretty hard to keep this final round blind, so I thought I would throw a few different things at you to make this choice. Remember you are the Rap's brass and only have these 2 guys to choose from... no you can't trade the pick at this point.

    Would you rather have...

    Austin Rivers
    Beat out Lillard, Marshall and Barnes to get here.

    PER – 16.8
    EFF – 11.1
    EFF/40 – 13.4
    WS/40 – 3.5

    2011-2012 Statistics: 15.5 ppg, 3.4 rpg, 2.1 apg

    Player Comparisons
    Swishscout.com - Best Case Scenario: Jamal Crawford, Worst Case Scenario: Jordan Crawford
    Hoopsworld - Jason Terry/Monta Ellis
    Nbadraft.net - Doc Rivers/OJ Mayo
    DraftExpress – none given


    Andre Drummond
    Beat out Zeller, Henson and Robinson to get here.

    PER – 21.8
    EFF – 14.2
    EFF/40 – 20.0
    WS/40 – 10.5

    2011-2012 Statistics: 10 ppg, 7.6 rpg, 2.7 bpg

    Player Comparisons
    Swishscout.com - Best Case Scenario: Amar’e Stoudemire, Worst Case Scenario: Andray Blatche
    Hoopsworld - DeAndre Jordan/Greg Monroe
    Nbadraft.net - Amar'e Stoudemire/DeAndre Jordan
    DraftExpress - Best Case: Andrew Bynum, Worst Case: Kwame Brown



    If you don't know what the PER, EFF, etc are then feel free to look it up or just ignore it and focus on the comparisons and season averages. It would have taken up too much space to explain those statistics. Hindsight - probably something I could have used in conjunction with the schematics last round.

    I'd take drummond, at number 8 he is a way better choice than Rivers.

    Drummond. He's the better player @ #8 and I assume he'd also have a much higher trade value after the draft.

    Rivers is at the very least, half-black. Have you seen his dad?

    But Christian Laettner and Bobby Hurley rocked! ...in college...

    Duke players very rarely seem to live up to individual expectations. There was such hype about players like Laettner, Boozer, Maggette, Langdon, Reddick, Battier, Brand, Deng, Dunleavy, Sheldon Williams, etc... yet none of them have ever become superstars. Grant Hill was probably the best of the bunch, when you think what his career might have been like, if not for the numerous injury plagued seasons in Orlando. I think it speaks volumes about the kids buying into the team concept and the incredible coaching ability of Coach K.

    Default Champion - Andre Drummond

    Drummond takes the first ever Raptors "Would you rather" tournament pick'em!




    I want to thank everyone for taking part in my little tourny. Based on the amount of voters, it seemed that it lost its novelty by the end. I enjoyed putting it together and think that some of the early suggestions (i.e. - only reveal the loser's name) would improve the game.

    What are your ideas for making this better?
    Anybody learn anything through this process?

    The frontcourt of JV and Drummond would have the potential to be the best in the league, something like a younger faster Gasol, Bynum frontcourt

    Could be dynamic... but it looks like Drummond will be going a lot higher than 8th.
