    Default JV + Ross vs. Other teams' rookies

    Hi,

    watching the preview today made me borrow the idea of how our two rookies compare to the other teams' rookies. Specifically how do our 2011 and 2012 first round draft picks compare to other teams' 2011 and 2012 first round picks. With the exception of having more than two first round picks of course.

    I'm new, but mods feel free to adjust this as needed. Our youth has been a highlight for the Raptors the past few years, so their development, potential, play every night, importance to their respective teams ect. will be under scrutiny by everyone, especially here on RR.

    If a poll can be made of succeeding in their 'match-ups' and maybe a third category as negligible (during games they get DNPs/injuries) it would be neat to see how throughout the season our rookies compare every (other) night and assess them at the end of the season.

    I'd like to update the match ups on this thread before every game.

    In Charlotte's case, should we look at Biyombo as well, given that he was the higher pick and probably the better comparison with JV?

    You're right forgot about the since Mullens and Hayward have been taking his PT. Biyombo was a slight spark.

    I think JV has the higher potential over all the 2011 and 2012 picks that played tonight, with Ross still needing time to prove himself. Looks like Kemba and MKG are getting time to realize their potential. JV and Ross given more rope tonight, but still struggling defensively and sometimes offensively against their competition.

    Really wonder what does on in Casey's head with his line ups and subs/rotations. Dom has been holding his own, more so than Fields or Kleiza.

    The whole league is going small ball, yet we refuse to try 6'7 DeRozan at SF? Ross is clearly a talented guy, why not start him at 2, then we can rotate Calderon and McGuire behind the 3 starters for now until Fields gets back.

    Ross and JV are looking like big time players. Ross plays like a vet, very under control and he can do everything. Defend, rebound, shoot and handle the rock. Very good pick imo

    Taylor played good "defence", and by that I mean hacking DeRozan and fouling Bargnani with no calls.
