    Default BC gets lambasted again.

    No more justifying BCs moves. They were ugly, inconceivable and outright senseless.

    You be the judge.

    BC has definitely done a bad job but a couple of things.

    1) Bosh is not a franchise cornerstone and should not be compared to LBJ or D12 - like, ever. Selecting Bargnani with Bosh already on roster was a mistake though - no question.

    2) Amir's contract is 5 years and $30M. $6M for an NBA big not on a rookie deal is not expensive - especially with said player entering prime of career.

    3) In the first round, outside of Drummond because that is an old debate and brings us back to #1 with JV already here, who has truly excelled to the point where you say, "Yeah, shoulda picked him instead." Ross is playing really well. Not comparing Ross to Harden but Harden was 6th man for years in OKC. Why can't Ross have a similar role? 3 and D off teh bench is extremely valuable in my opinion. Ross might actually be much more so thta is just a bonus.

    4) The idea of the Raptors not having a franchise player is a good one. Unfortunately the Raps haven't had a pick higher than #5. Irving and Davis are legit future stars and franchise players - who were also #1 PICKS in drafts with consensus #1's. Bargnani was no such thing and there was no consensus #1 in 2006. Since Bargnani the Raps have picked 9th, 13th, 5th, and 8th. Oh yeah, I for one am very glad we don't have DMC on the roster - no question of his talent but also no question of his immaturity 3 years in to the league. Since DMC is in his 3rd year and was picked 5th (again due to off court issues, not his talent), lets wait and see what JV is doing in year 3 to use that example.



    I definitely think BC has botched more than he has done right in Toronto. But this piece is nowhere close to the issues of why.

    I agree with what was said about Ross. He's a good kid, has obvious talent, but he's a SG. Matts point about bringing him off the bench as a 6th man is valid, but I highly doubt that is why he was drafted and at this point Ross isn't anywhere near as advance as Harden was coming into the league. I'm sure there is a really good reason for them picking him, but just doesn't make much sense right now. Same with Acy. Why draft yet another PF whose smaller than some SF when you could take a shot at someone with a high risk, high reward potential like Q. Miller?

    Dont' agree with what was said about drafting Bargnani. The one other guy who was in the running for being the #1 pick was Aldridge and his game is even more similar to Bosh than Bargnani.

    Matt? Can you add " My name is sitnonDfence, and I approve this message" to your signature? It would save me a lot of typing.

    Thanks

    YEah, I read this article earlier. Pretty good analysis. The Amir contract is definitely not a bad one though. Although I do agree to some extent that we probably didn't need to jump out and sign him on the first day of free agency. BC has definitely failed over and over again trying to make the right choices in building a team. Even if Bosh wasn't a franchise player, he really screwed trying to build any kind of team with him. Obviously there are lots of what ifs, but the writer is 100% correct about the Bargs pick creating a problem because there was no way he and Bosh would never really fit together.
