    Default Terrence Ross = mo-Pete ???? J richardson?

    Time for more blind optimism.
    You all think that Terrence Ross = Mo-pete? Or
    A hybrid of J-Rich and Tony Allen is what I see Terrence Ross as.
    All this from his clips from college and latest las Vegas games.

    Or is he going to be coming off the bench forever?
    Never amount to nutin?

    Your thoughts

    I don't get the Mo-Pete comparison. Mo-pete was slow and unathletic but got it done. The best comparison for a ceiling is Latrell Sprewell without the attitude (the dunk at 50 seconds looks eerily similar to Ross' first dunk in the Summer League):



    According to Basketball Reference Sprewell was:
    6'5 and 190 lbs.

    STAT............Ross..........................Spre well - sophomore season in NCAA:
    MPG..............31............................... 36
    PPG...............16.4........................... 17.8
    APG...............1.4............................ 2.1
    RPG...............6.4............................. 5.2

    If Ross comes close to the defensive capabilities of a Sprewell or Tony Allen that would be a good thing since he seems to have real good form on his shot so I wouldnt worry about his offence. I think he was drafted because they saw his defensive possibilities. But he needs to put on some weight to be as effective as the above two mentioned. Spre without the attitude is fine by me.

    if sprewell didn't have the attitude he would have become a near superstar. I'd be happy if Ross even made 2 all star games

    More mentally sound than both of those players but just as skilled, tough and intense would be nice to see.

    Blind is the operative word here though.

    As long as he promises to not go into broadcasting after he retires.

    Oh, and to play defense.

    People are going to laugh, but I see alot of Kobe in Ross's game.
    Not saying he will be as good as Kobe, but I see alot of the same characteristics in how they play.
    (Jumper, Athletic, Handle, Defense)

    So calm and in control, has that icy stare already, its almost like they're not even trying; yet you know when he wants to, he can bite you at any minute. He owned duded at Washington.


    (I was just watching an Interview with Ross, and I swear to god, if he ever shaves that Goatee off, Him and Demar will be IMPOSSIBLE to tell apart... except for the Jump Shot. )

    Won't compare him to Mo Pete at all. I think he'll be much better. Fits Dwane Caseys system perfectly. Plays good defense, rebounds and shoots. I'd like to see him make a name for himself rather than be a clone. A lot of the Raptors immediate future depends on him and Jonas.

    DeMar has that goiter on the side of his face though! They do sound very similar though. West coast accent with frogs in their throat?

    If we have a Sprewell on our hands with JV coming in and DC's defensive schemes, we may have a chip in the next 4-5 years.

    But let's not get ahead of ourselves.

    Nah T Ross and Ed davis sound and talk the same way. They pause a lot and they talk quietly, when demar talks you can hear his accent and instead of "i think˝ he says "i thank".

    Cant wait for the season to start. All star weekend should be fun. Any bets on how many raptors are going to take part in the events? I say anywhere from 3 to 4. Ross and JV in the rookie challenge. Maybe Lowry in the skills comp. And who knows maybe Demar or Andrea might actually make the All Star team. Depending on if fans take notice. At the end of the day all star games are nothing more than popularity contests. I just want our team to be popular again and the best way to do that is to WIN!

    Yes to the Bryant 'style of play' comparison. DeRozan and Ross look alike??? No.

    Ross' skills remind me of VC. Not as polished going to the rim, but has a good outside shot, and is athletic. Ross is already years ahead defensively.

    Ross reminds me of a young Michael Jordan, mixed with the defensive intensity of a celtics era Kevin Garnett, Reggie Miller's ability to be clutch and Magic Johnson's leadership.

    Default Reality

    I say to myself first and than you all - that all our comparisons including my own mean squat!

    However, its good to see that the pick at its present state is a positive pick and all or most fans are in agreement that BC clan made the right decision. I trust you all agree with this.
    Let me repeat that again...I trust most are happy with this pick at its present state based on what we know and saw thus far. Now having said that...when NBA season arrives and this dude sucks you have no right to cry and wine at BC. LOL

    Realisticly, his peak in my opinion is basically Derozan with a better jump shot. And to me, that's a solid starter in the NBA. Hopefully he can get there. I do see some glimpses of Jason Richardson 2.0 or I can think of OJ mayo or Ben Gordon at this point. WHO KNOWS...sky is the limit for him...should he work hard and the coaching staff press the right buttons.


    No matter, we agree this was the right pick i trust and also agree that Ross will make Derozan better...as Ross will push Derozan to show up or move on.

    Peace
