    What do you work for MLSE?

    who cares what we think? If he's awesome we will praise Colangelo, if he sucks we will justly criticize him because it's his job to research and make the picks. Not ours.

    Eddie Jones

    It's been brought up before and I know a lot of people had problems with the comparison but I see it, especially when Jones was a rookie. One of my favorite players he was mostly a shooter in his first couple years but was always a solid defender. I believe he was on the all defensive team a couple times. Not saying Ross will ever be on that list (not in this age) but he's probably most defensively sound than Demar, even as a rookie. I see it being a strength or years to come.

    If he can get into the paint a little more I think he'll be extremely good. He just needs to add some weight but maintain his athleticism and explosiveness. Easier said than done. I think he'll be a great 3 and D guy regardless, but I'd like to see him open his game more like Eddie did over the next few years.

    All jokes aside...I work as a parking lot security guard at the MLSE Condo connected to ACC. But that has nothing to do with my remark for not crying if Ross sucks....just being fair ...I mean considering what we hear and what we see thus far...at the spot picked he was the right choice for our need.

    I don't see the MoPete comparison. Ross has the ability to create his own shot. MoPete was just a catch-and-shoot specialist.

    That is a pretty bang-on comparison. Never thought about that.

    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. )
    I thought Demar IMO was the one to Kobe... Athletic, post-game, mid-range game, slashing.

    Toronto fans are great compared to fans in my country, trust me, you are lucky to have such atmosphere up here.

    No way, you guys are a basketball country. Basketball fans are a minority here in Hockey-land.

    Well from this point of view yes, though, when it's majority, then all fans are basketball coaches, they can judge, evaluate every move and every player/coach is under magnifying glass. Of course, not all fans are like that, but we have 3 000 000 coaches up here, that's for sure.
