Perhaps you guys needs some perspective and then will realise the entire fate of the franchise wasn't going to be set on the right path by a 5th pick in one of the shittiest drafts in the history of the NBA.

That being said, this guy could turn out to be the steal of the draft. Length, athleticism, a high motor - I'm excited.

And jeff, really? Really? Making fun of a guy for not speaking English that well when your grip on it would also appear to be quite tenuous (at least in it's written form) is somewhat "assinine".
You've been listening to too much BC and Raptors TV, JV will be a BUST just like barg. What really bothers me is everyone justifying this pick , how great it was, yada yada yada, especially Leo Rautins, for him every euro is solid gold. Hey, just because you couldn't make it in the NBA and you may have had limit success in the euroleague, don't try to bolster your ego by claiming all euros are more talented than NCAA players. The fact remains this was a weak draft, tell the fanbase you couldn't make a trade for the fifth pick, you like j. bayless over kemba and knight (big mistake, you'll all see), and that in secret discussions with david stern you know that there will be a lockout that will mercifully shorten the nba season/agony for raptor fans and allow JV to develop in europe for another year after which we may be able to trade him or barg to san antonio since they're the gods of nba talent recognition (not that they haven't been good), but fyi just because they like him (JV) doesn't mean he's good.
