    Default Dictatorship quality

    So I noticed there's a Hunger Games / Jurassic Park thread. I've thought of a less toughness oriented but definitely not any less important one - character / charisma.

    Which player/coach of the current roster would be the most capable of running a dictatorship (Hitler/Musolini/Stalin like)?

    Casey has a head start on the players. He has had a few years of yelling at grown men and you can't argue with the "buy in" this year. I truly believe the Raps are building the team around... Dwayne Casey! If I didn't know any better, it would seem to me that Casey is already running this franchise... BryCo included.
    How many times have we heard in the last year (especially this summer): "He's a Dwayne Casey type of player."
    Lowry... check!
    Valanciunas... check!
    Ross... check!
    Acy... check!

    And who is gone... anybody that questions the dictatorship:
    J. Johnson... see ya!
    Bayless... see ya!
    Alabi... ok, maybe not this guy!

    Not true! Here are today's RR trending threads:

    1. debating sexiest Raptor rookie photo
    2. which player would win ACC Hunger Games?
    3. which player/coach is most Hitler-esque?

    ummm... well RR folks are certainly creative and passionate about their team, I will give us that! lol Training camp can't start soon enough!


    And for the record... Acy, Kleiza, Casey. lol

    That's General Kleiza to you.

    lol, I stand corrected.

    I'm waiting for someone to start the "if the Raptors were Power Rangers, who would be the red one?" thread.

    What I can deduce from results is that Kleiza might be a good coach some day.

    I have no idea what he's like in the locker room or whether he has the respect of his fellow players, but I get the impression that he possesses natural leadership qualities (especially from his time on the national team) and certainly would be a no-nonsense coach. I have no idea how he is with the x's and o's, so he might need a guy like Triano as an assistant, but I certainly wouldn't mess with him or slack off in practice!

    Weird! I was just talking to a buddy about the Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers! Brought me WAAY back.

    Lord Zedd anyone??

    Zordon?!

    Tommy!? Oh that Hair...


    And to answer the thread, I'm going with Bargs.
    He's got the Charm and Charisma; and "Friendly Baffoon" thing going for him that SO many 'great' leaders have had in the Past.

    Acy or Kleiza

    Lowry because he's the small guy on the team. He may have a little bit of the Napoleon complex.
    Walking like I'm already there.

    Oh Kleiza for sure.

    I think the funnest dictatorship would be the Landry Fields one. It would be jokes.
