Colangelo's team did the research, and made the decision to pass on a sure fire SG star you could insert for immediate success and take a raw but potentially dangerous player 5 years down the road.

5 years later, Roy is a shell and may be done, because of his knee's, and Bargnani is emerging as a top three center in the NBA, and is still a kid too.

Nice to win one!
A long shot? I'm pretty sure there's a kid in Boston that's pretty good if not better...also a pretty dynamic young guy in Memphis who's proving to be a decent pick.
