    Their Problem isn't drafting the problem is keeping...

    They drafted ROY Damon Stoudamire. He was alright for a couple of years... then goooooone!

    They traded T-Mac to the Orlando Magic for a 2005 1st round draft pick (Fran Vazquez) and kept Vince Carter. In hindsight they should've done the reverse.

    Plus Jonathan Bender never played a single game for them... he was traded to Indiana for Antonio Davis (good trade).... same goes for Kareem Rush who was traded to Los Angeles.

    prevailing a million championship would not justify their determination in any respect. in the journey that they drafted Melo, or Bosh or Wade they might have gained diverse championships in the journey that they nevertheless had their sport-prevailing squad. that is particularly genuine seeing as they "drafted in accordance with choose" and "did not play" him very a lot. the following is a few gamers that Detroit ought to've taken Carmelo Anthony Chris Bosh Dwyane Wade Chris Kaman & Kirk Hinrich a number of those gamers were given drafted AFTER Darko Milicic, now to not aspect out Mickaël Piétrus & Nick Collison and Mo Williams were all interior a similar draft. thinking the expertise that Milicic became up adversarial to in 2003, and thinking the powerhouse the pistons were even as they drafted Darko, he became positively the most important draft bust contained in the history of the association

    yea im a raptors fan and toronto resident and i realize wenever we suck, the draft sucks too. why could we not have drafted Kevin Durant instead of Bargnani, or even Dwight Howard. Besides that, if we kept the ignorant american players who bolted to the states instead of playing and staying in toronto where we couldve built a great team (billups, vc, t-mac, antonio davis, and camby....bossssss lineup cant even front)

    Clippers, in 30 years they made the playoffs only 4 times... so thats 26 lottery picks and you and i both see how that turned out until last year...

    edit: also they Raptors had some nice picks just couldn't get anyone on offseasons to compliment those picks

    Yes - not a great drafting record, but that DeRozen kid they got in 2009 is looking like a future allstar, at least when he plays against my Kings.
