Basketball has clear winners every night --except at the draft, which is all homework, politics and chance.
I would take Barnes/Lillard > Ross 10 out of 10 times.
Damn coin toss .... Our roster would be so different had we not lost that.
I wanted Ross, but I admitted I didn't think we'd have to go at 8 to get him (who knows in the end). My draft wish list was to trade down (like 12-14...maybe 15 or 16 at the lowest), where I hoped for Ross or Terrence Jones, and then a few other names that I would've been ok with (like Harkless, Lamb....).
I also admit I wasn't big on Lillard. I was way too worried he wouldn't be able to pass the ball well at all. And then I'm not a fan at all of having what's basically a shooting guard play point. He seems to have proven me wrong, though.

A couple of days before draft night i was looking at Ross and i liked his game so i didn't freak out like most people when we picked him.
He still shoots better than Bargs...
The Baltic Beast is unstoppable!
I was high on Lillard, and was really bummed that Portland took him. If we landed Lillard would Bryan still go after Nash and in the mean time get Fields? Would he then have gotten Lowry even though Jose was on the team?
Lillard would have been sweet.. we'd probably still have our 2013 pick (although knowing Bryan, he would have probably sent that to Phoenix for Telfair).
Pretty much impossible (and pointless) to predict what would have happened. But yea, Lillard looks like the real deal now. Given what was left we didn't end up too badly in the draft. I'm still mad at guys like Ben Uzoh for making us miss out on Harrison Barnes.
