    Default Disgruntled Fans 2012: Extended stinkfest? (#296)

    ok this is a reactionary post but come on now Terrence Ross?! is it because he has the same initials as the Toronto Raptors?! is BC high?! I am so sick of his macho head games! This is BC stab in the dark because if this Terrence Ross doesn't pan out and Drummond becomes a beast then he should get his ass packing and take his fat Italian assistent GM with him!!!

    Ok lets all calm down and take a deep breath.....

    i think he's a very good shooter and one of the more athletic dudes in the draft. Basically he's a much much better version of sonny weems. Him and DeRozan should make a good 1 - 2 punch on the wing

    So couldn't the Raptors have traded down to get him?! There better be something else brewing.

    Maybe no one was willing to trade. And who knows if he would still be there

    Also, I'm guessing Colangelo's draftcredentials are a lot better than yours? Some reflection on why he drafted this guy might be in order Hotshot.

    Trust me I was surprised and a little dissapointed that they didn't draft Rivers or Lamb, but Terrence Ross is a pure 'baller.' He addresses every single one of our needs. A small forward, a shooter, and shot creator, scorer, defender. He can do everything, and in his college season, he averaged as much as Demar averaged on Toronto.

    My guess is he'll be better at SG; let's start a trade DeMar! thread.

    Can't help but chuckle when somebody calls for a guys head solely because he makes a decision conflicting with a group of writers who will never be trusted with the kinds of responsibilities that Colangelo has. Look at the man's track record even. If you don't agree with the pick he's still earned the benefit of the doubt.

    I don't mind it, he's like a poor mans version of MKG with a jumper.

    My thinking EXACTLY.

    Solid defender. Solid Shooter. Solid Athlete. Good Hustle. Good Size. So what if we took him a bit high.
    In Masai we Trust.

    I'm relieved that the Lowry thing didn't happen, I tell you that.

    We could have traded down and got him, Which is what I don't like about it.

    Gotta love BC. If he picked rivers or Drummond we would have gone to bed with an uneasy, semi satisfied, uninspired feeling. Instead he pulls one out of his $&# and leaves you wondering about the possibility that maybe something more is to come or maybe he knows something we don't. Not sure if that translates to progress but we'll see.

    Whatever happened to choosing best overall talent over need?! it seems to me that Drummond would have been the right choice for this pick.

    Defend Bryan Colangelo as much as you want but drafting Drummond was obviously the smartest decision even if he had no plans of keeping him. His trade value alone is enough to warant the pick. Let's hope Ross is worth being taken over Rivers and Lamb also. Hey, you never know, maybe some sort of deal offers some insight into this pick...cause it simply makes zero sense as of right now.

    I'm not. I don't want any part of this Nash crap. He is a terrible option in the long run, bringing him would be solely to sell seats.

    This, I wish he would have drafted him and used him to trade for someone.

    Not my favourite pick, but other than Drummond, was there really anybody noticeably better? Maybe Lamb, but really, once the first seven picks were made it was really a sea of near-equal potential. I'm shocked. I'm disappointed that we didn't land Lillard or Barnes. But I'm not ready to second-guess the pick based on the players who were off the board already.

    Right, with Drummond his value would have been the highest even before he would have hit the NBA basketball court and would have yielded more and higher offers for players they do want then dangling Ed Davis or Amir.

    I can't wait for the press conference with BC and Casey smiling and saying "this is the guy we always wanted to take, he is solid" or some crap like that.

    For every move BC makes that's right, he makes a counter move that ain't right which is why the Raptors haven't really gotten anywhere in years.

    I see Drummond becoming the Rudy Gay of 2012. You know the guy with the great talent but slipped in the draft standings because he had questionable character or work ethics.

    I love how everyone looks at mock drafts and got pissed when it didn't pan out exactly how the mocks predicted. Ross is by far the 2nd best SF in the draft and has a ton of potential with little downside

    I understand why everyone is upset they didn't take Drummond, because what draft picks have better records than hyper athletic big men who don't have their head in the game?
