Of course, it's not Bosh's fault that Colangelo botched the 2006 draft so badly. The Raptors
could have Brandon Roy or Rudy Gay instead of Bargnani
right now and this team would be a legit contender.
No way we can judge the 2006 draft today. Rudy Gay makes no-one an immediate contender, and Roy nobody argued would have the best start of anyone in the draft as he is most NBA ready. Bargs
upside is crazy, so while we are talking about underrating Bosh, perhaps we should also visit, people jumping ship on the Bargs
train because of one average injury plagued season. (looks at Doc)
