    With all the hate for the pick, I now love it.

    When this many people are pissed off, it was the right move. Group think is seldom right - in the end, and that is what matters.

    Looking forward to see what happens July 1st though 11th.

    Hopefully something bigger than Nash.
    Ah yes. Costanza's opposite theory. It just might work

    I don't hate the pick. BC made his decision based on our needs instead of getting the BPA. That's either gonna end up being really smart, or bit us in the ass HARD. I'm not as excited about it, but I'm willing to give Terrence Ross a chance to prove himself before I judge whether this was a bust or not.
    BC made the pick because of
    1) he is athletic
    2) he is 21 (more NBA ready than a 19 year old)
    3) he can shoot

    One of the knocks on Ross is his below average basketball IQ.
    Where did you hear this? It's the exact opposite.

    Keep in mind that this is just one guy's opinion.

    Strengths:
    * Good 3-point shooter with NBA range
    * Explosive athleticism
    * Good rebounder
    * Good defender

    Weaknesses:
    * Has to get bigger and stronger

    NBA projection:
    Ross has been projected as a mid first-round pick. Hes got pro size, athleticism and range on his jump shot. Hell be a tough cover in the NBA, especially if he can add some weight and strength.

    2011-12 Season:
    Ross was a first-team All-Pac-12 pick after leading Washington in scoring and ranking among league leaders in eight statistics: scoring (16.4, fourth), rebounding (6.4, sixth), offensive rebounds (5.1, third), free throw percentage (.766, 11th), steals (1.3, 12th), 3-PT FG makes (2.1, eighth), 3-point percentage (.371, 14th) and blocked shots (0.9, 13th).

    Key statistics:
    16.4 ppg, 6.4 rpg, 1.4 apg, 2.0 tpg, 1.3 spg, 0.9 bpg, 31.1 mpg, .457 FG, .371 3PT, .774 FT

    Cool statistic:
    Ross was at his best in the postseason, averaging 25.0 points in four NIT games. He shot .405 from the 3-point line (.405) and
