    Davis obviously.
    After that:
    MKG
    Beal
    Barnes
    Those 3 based on need. Of course, if we trade AB and get a higher pick then I start thinking Robinson. As an aside, I wanted to mention that I just showed my wife Google's images of Anthony Davis and she couldn't stop laughing that every NBA fan in the world wants this guy on their team. She was more freaked by his grill then the Brow

    +1 The best three, but if we were going on full potential I would have Beal/Perry Jones

    If anyone doesn't choose Davis 1st then wow....
    After that
    MKG
    Beal (how tall is he though?)
    Barnes (cause teamed with Jose, Barnes could be deadly)

    I think we all agree the workouts will be crucial

    Your absolutely right, workouts can make it or break it for most players. You also make an interesting point with putting Barnes in your top 3. He had an awful sophomore season with North Carolina, which really freaked me out since I thought he would be a guaranteed first pick after his freshman year. You mentioned that if we draft Barnes he could be deadly if teamed with Jose. You hit the nail on the head with that one. I just put Rivers ahead of Barnes on my top three because he made the decision to declare for the NBA after one year in the NCAA. He played a great season at Duke, my fondest memory is him hitting a game winning three against Dukes biggest rival North Carolina.

    I don't know if picking based on compatibility with Calderon, is the best approach....especially since it would take a minor miracle for Calderon to last in Toronto beyond next season.

    Top 3: Davis, Kidd-Gilchrist, beal

    Why not stick with the 8th pick (if thats where we end up drafting) and go with PJ3?? I feel like he could be the steal of the draft.

    When Calderons contract expires I think he should and will be resigned to a back up role he is still very useful and we owe him that seeing as he has been a class act throughout these past years. And we all know how good he can be because of his high basketball IQ. Although he clearly is not our PG of the future. I believe we should consider possibly drafting a PG, if there is available, in this years draft. Maybe make a trade with Mem or Ind to move into the late first round and get a Marquis Teague or Tony Wroten.

    I think Andre Drummond has amazing potential. It would be hard not picking him. Hes a freak of nature and we know he can play Defense. He is only 18 years old and he can possibly be the next Dwight Howard. The knack on him is his motor and his ft pct (just under 30 percent wow). Is he in my top three though? Maybe... What do you guys think?

    I'm afraid of Drummond. I don't like the idea of taking low post players based 100% on potential. He could be the next Dwight or Amare, but the odds are that he'll be the next Thabeet, Olawokandi, Curry, Brown, Thomas, or Swift instead.

    Having said that, Chad Ford just tweeted this:

    Drummond has lost 22 pounds since ending the season. He's at 268 now. He's very quick laterally for a big guy. VERY QUICK

    Lets hope not but you could be right Thabeet was picked with the 2nd overall pick in 09 and he is pretty much written off as a bust. But i think the team that takes him should be patient because if healthy I know he will be a beast one day.

    I'm not nearly as down on Drummond as most here, and think his floor is a lot higher than most give him credit for but i wouldn't take him unless it meant flipping bargs for another lotto pick and i don't see BC rolling with that much youth.

    I'd put the chances of Drummond in Toronto next year at zero percent ... 0%.

    Hitting the ground running in no way involves turning a current asset (our 1st round draft pick) into a piece that will be below even Ed Davis on the depth chart next season.

    I think he could emerge as a physical, imposing defender in 3-4 years ... but between here and there are a LOT of ugly moments, games limited with foul trouble, and time spent looking at the players drafted AFTER him.
    The only way to bag a classy lady is to give her two tickets to the gun show... and see if she likes the goods.
