    Default Do YOU have a top 3, before Wednesday night?

    Yes every mock draft and league "insider" has info on who may go where, at what pick ... but from a Raptors perspective, if we pop up into the top 3 on Wednesday night - do you have your top 3 picks ordered in your head?

    It may not be shocking or risky, but mine look like this:

    1.) Anthony Davis
    2.) Michael Kidd-Gilchrist
    3.) Bradley Beal

    I chose Davis, MKG and other, not that I want an other, just that I can't clearly pick a 3rd player. I need to see some workouts from Barnes and Beal to make a pick....hell I am even on the fence with MKG.

    I agree with your top 3. However, after watching a few pre-tourney Kentucky games and then all their tourney games, I am not sold on Davis, especially with the expectations that come from being a #1 overall pick (see Bargnani thread). I'm hoping more for the #2 or #3 pick for the Raptors, assuming Davis would go #1... then my top 3 would be Beal, MKG and either Barnes/Lamb.

    MKG in top 3. Stops going. He may need some skill development but he will bring 200% heart for 48 minutes

    Yup, I'm exactly on-board with the OP's top 3. I do think there are guys outside the top 3 with higher upside than MKG or Beal, but both of them have solid upsides while having a better chance of reaching their potential (due to the versatile toolsets they have as well as work ethics) than just about anybody in the lottery, Davis included.

    i think i'd go Davis/Beal/MKG but wouldn't be upset with MKG if Beal was still out there. If that makes any sense.

    Had a dream the Raptors won the lottery. I woke up pretty pissed off when I realized it was a dream.
    My top 3: Davis, MKG, Beal

    I'm going to assume we don't get #1 - Davis is a no brainer.

    Barnes
    Beal
    Lamb

    *Alphabetical because I'm not sure of order of preference*

    I used to be drinking the MKG kool-aid, but am starting to question his game now. Here are my top 3 choices at this point in time (I have the right to change my opinion prior to draft night):

    Davis
    Beal
    T-Rob

    I'm with you, Bendit. I think Robinson could be crazy good. He reminds me of Amare, but is a better rebounder.

    I usually dont do this but i think we should draft this year based on a mixture of best talent available and also by need. Keeping this in mind my big board will look something like this assuming the raptors leap into the top three teams in the draft lottery.

    1stMKG-
    NCAA champ. I think he played great as a freshmen and we all know our teams need for a wing player.

    2ndBradley Beal-
    Fantastic shooter. DC has mentioned that our team need to add shooters. His rebounding ability is amazing.

    3rdAustin Rivers-
    Had a good one year stint at duke. He can light it up and has a fearless mentality.

    Seeing as were stacked at the 4 and 5 positions, I think we should focus on wing players. That doesnt mean that I'd pass on Davis if we landed the first pick.

    davis if 1st

    mkg
    beal
    robinson

    if we are not 1st. but i am also on the fence of trading down to 2 or 3 if we win to get another asset and still get one of either mkg or beal.

    i really like mkg

    Good to have some company. TRob (your namesake!) I think will transition great into the NBA and was a beast (with so much heart) in the tournament carrying his team. The Raptors are in sore need of a leader on the floor and this is why I also go for MKG. Difference maker is what I'd like in crunch time and I believe my picks sorta reflect that. To be honest I am getting a bit nervy about Davis who has great upside but is currently not built for the heavy going inside game. What if he is physiologically unable to put on weight?
