    lol I love how, just a 24 hours ago, everyone was pissed off and hated the pick. And all of a sudden everyone loves Ross. I guess this happens after every single draft night as a Raptors fan with an unpredictable BC.

    Been a supporter of T-Ross for a while. I was the one who first put up that video of him working out for the draft. I've been watching a lot of video of him on YouTube. There is actually a lot of game footage of his team. The thing that I realize about him is that his really going to going to benefit from playing with a pass-first PG(Calderon/Nash). Tony Wroten spends most of possession looking for his and taking real bad shots

    -Terrence Ross' 0.995 overall PPP ranks eighth of the 18 wing prospects, and he's doing so on the seventh-highest number of possessions per game at 16.3. Ross stands out most with his second-best 1.389 PPS on shots around the basket, though he also posted a respectable seventh-best 1.184 PPS on jumpers, speaking to his versatility. Given his ability to score efficiently as a jump shooter and likewise do so getting to the basket off the ball, Ross has a nice groundwork of skills for a role playing wing at the next level, and could use them to help find a niche early.

    Very well said Nil. Thats exactly what it is.

    I remember on draft night telling people to just CHILL and actually think about the pick, and the player, we just got.
    Lo and behold, majority have come to accept the pick as at least not being a ridiculous reach.

    TRoss can ball. And when its "Terrence Time" (as they say at Washington) in Toronto, Raptors fans are going to LOVE this kid.

    ("Terrence Time in Toronto" ... oh thats good. The alliteration is too perfect.)

    I think many were disappointed in the pick due to the fact he wasn't mentioned very much. Part of that comes from playing for UW. Part of it because the Raptors did not make much of a big deal out of him as they did with Rivers. Fans were caught off guard. Personally, I wanted a bigger talent/name from the draft but I did follow him for the most part of last year and was pretty impressed. I posted the video in the draft thread of that lob 360 dunk (although some at the time weren't impressed - lol).

    Something else I thought about regarding people saying he was too small and had to bulk up: he was the lowest body fat % at the combine with something like 3.1 or 3.2%.

    If he sucks, let's go for Terrible Terrence.
    If he's good, we can also go for Ross the Boss; if he makes Bargnani play better we can go for Pasta Sauce.

    Ok, it's not much, but that's all I got.

    Indeed ... I remember actually. I believe this is about when I started to become aware of Terrence-Time in Washington.

    If the Raptors land Nash, DeRozan and Ross are going to have a lot of people eating crow right out of the gate.

    +1 Nash does bring the best out of teammates.

    Here is a pretty cool Terrence Ross mix I came across on Youtube

    Now whether it can be done at the NBA level remains to be seen (although there is a video out there where he undresses Rasual Butler repeatedly), however the first 15 seconds shows a number of dribble drive/moves people have been waiting on DeMar for the past 2-3 seasons.

    Dissapointed in the pick BUT I believe in Dwayne Casey decision, he know's what he's doing, atleast this guy can shoot.

    Love BC or hate him, you have to admire his resolve to not conform to popular opinion - whether among fans or media.

    Fleetwood Mac? They were big before TR was born and soft rock at that. Interesting. But then the bowtie was too.

    Acy has a pretty good sense of humour I noticed. Good vibe on the personalities of these 2.

    You have to think that TRoss is just drooling at the thought of having Nash feeding him the ball for the next three years.
