    Default Do you remember your past draft preferences?

    Me and my buddy were talking about this the other day. And thinking about it, if was the GM of the Raps we probably would be a contending team by now

    2004 was a joke. I still have no idea why they took Araujo. Iguodala was the obvious pick there.

    I remember back in 06 i wanted the Raps to take Gay #1 overall. Didn't want Bargnani because we already had Bosh.

    Back in 05 i wanted them to draft Gerald Green 7th overall and Danny Granger 16th overall. They ended up that year with Charlie Villanueva and Joey Graham

    2004 - Andre Iguodala
    2005 - Gerald Green and Danny Granger
    2006 - Rudy Gay
    2009 - DeMar DeRozan
    2010 - Ed Davis
    2011 - Bismack Biyombo
    2012 - Austin Rivers

    My only regret here is Biyombo. Colangelo made the right pick selecting Valanciunas in 2011.

    I know in 2011 I really wanted Kemba Walker. But part of that is that I'm also a UConn fan and had zero knowledge of Jonas.

    Great thread idea!

    2006: Brandon Roy or Rudy Gay --> the league was becoming wing-dominant and I thought they would be best compliment to Bosh (Bargnani was my 3rd choice, buying into the Dirk-lite hype)

    2009: Tyreke Evans, or else DeMar DeRozan (Ricky Rubio was 2nd choice after Evans, hoping uncertainty caused him to drop) --> they still hadn't addressed their wing positions, or a future pass-first PG replacement for Calderon (to be mentored by his countyman)

    2010: Derrick Favors --> to replace Bosh, but I knew the Raps had no chance without moving up. I was actually hoping for the Raps to trade down to draft Avery Bradley (who they were apparently high on too), while picking up an additional asset in the process.

    2011: Derrick Williams (if he could play SF) or else Jonas Valanciunas (was also really high on Kawhi Leonard, but he would have been a huge reach @ #5, unless they traded down and picked up an additional asset in the process)

    2012: Bradley Beal, Harrison Barnes or Damian Lillard --> they still hadn't addressed their wing positions, or a solid PG

    2005: Danny Granger. I wanted him badly. For some reason I knew he was a steal
    2006: If I remember correctly, Barg was my fav
    2009: Derozan
    2010: didn't care. Just realizing now how weak that draft really was
    2011: Brandon Knight
    2012: wanted Waiters, but after he was taken I was hoping for Lamb, PJ3 or Drummond

    2005: Granger
    2006: Roy
    2009: DeRozan
    2010: Hoped for Hayward, but once taken Bradley or Bledsoe
    2011: Hoped for Kanter, but once taken JV (wanted a center)
    2012: Anyone drafted 1-7, after that was a toss up between Lamb and PJ3
