Bargnani was just a bad, bad reach for B.C.
I'm still not convinced that any other GM would've taken him at #1.
I absolutely agree. There have been numerous stories that Bosh
wanted BC to select Aldridge, but as we know BC being the idiot he was selected the useless waste of space in AB. In that draft class the only other players picked in the top 10 that would have been good/safe picks were Aldridge, Roy (unfortunate injury), and Gay. Even though he wasn't 1st overall material, looking back at that draft, I would have been ok with Redick too.
