toronto is not at all 'sooooo bad' at making draft picks. that's simply not true. i'm not sure, anyways, how a franchise can be bad at something like that. it's not like the macot makes that draft choices. it depends on what general manager and staff are in place at the time. colangelo has a very good trade record.

roy would have been a poor pick since he's pretty much done already, and aldridge was completely redundant at the time. gay is the only other reasonable choice at the time, and quite frankly i'm glad we're not the ones paying him a max salary right now.
