Raptors Knight or Walker?

If we pick a point guard, assuming Irving goes 1st, which one do you prefer?

Walker, if we draft Knight I will be very disappointed.

On NBA.com they keep insisting we get walker on the front page but sources here are saying he isn't even on their minds.. Whack!

ive been on the fence for a while now but im on the kemba bandwagon now. here are some pros of each

knight:

young/versatile/atheltic
potentially elite defensively
possible westbrook(playing style)

kemba:- leader( weve needed a leader for a realllllly long time now, im talking since mighty mouse)
-can be a pure point guard, yet is athletic as well.. a good combination of skills.

has the tools to play d due to athleticism and seems eager to improve in all aspects so under casey its very well possible

Right now so$e have walker well past us, possibly as far as 10th. I'm torn and would be happy with either. But I think I'd still prefer Knight.

I'm a fan of Knight. Excellent defender, he can create his own shot and distributing will come. I'm happy with either, but if I had a choice I'd take Knight.

I don't know why people keep thinking Knight is the better defender, he isn't. Kemba is the better defender of the two.

Knight is better than Walker on defence, no question.

Walker doesn't even have average defence, he's below average.

i don't think there's a wrong choice between the two of them right now. i think knight is a little more intriguing and we all know he's the player the Raptors want.

below average compared to what? NBA? past draft picks? because you must be dellusional to think hes a below average current draft pick or college player.

his team won a national championship because of him. he out played brandon knight in the ncaa tournament. lol that is not below average.

Better question though is if Knight will be available at 5.

According to another report, Utah is leaning towards Kanter at 3. If they choose Kanter, it's pretty much a lock that Knight will be on the board at 5. Doubt CLE will select 2 PGs in top 4 picks.

What do you base this on?

How many 6 footers in the league are above average defenders?

Knight is taller + has more quickness than Kemba.

Rajon Rondo. He's 6"1 but still considered small IMO
