Default Raptors have the worst roster?

I was listening to ESPN Radio last week and I don't know if anyone listens to Ryan Ruselio, but he was saying that the Raptors have the worst roster in the NBA.

He claimed that the Kings have Tyreke and Cousins and the Wolves got Love and Rubio as assets that every team in the NBA would want. He couldn't name any player on the Raptors that a team would die to have.

What do you think?

ESPNRadio.com - PodCenter - ESPN

It's the dec. 29th podcast at about 25 minutes or so.

I think that I have heard nothing but great praise from opposing coaches and players about Bargnani.

So, no, I don't agree that we have NO players.....

Not much after him though.

I guess if you look at it from the 'future stars to build around' standpoint...perhaps...but does Cleveland have anyone? Are we the least talented, least skilled top to bottom? No way....although we're not far from the bottom

Worst roster, yet they point to one or two players on teams that have absolutely no depth. So they're not really looking at rosters.

the players should listen to this guy, light a fire under everyone's ass.

besides who doesn't want barbosa, klezia, Calderon and bayless as a part of their roster in this league?

Our individual talent is limited but our team chemistry is very good, our offense is fluid, we play as a TEAM. I mean, every guy can replace another in the system, we're always "competitive". Thats what I like the most with this squad.

Yes, Raptors has worst roster... In fact, this roster looks more like Euroleague team, than NBA team roster... for real.
But CAVS also looks awful. Jamison showing no interesting, JJ looks like a bust, Mo is worse without LeBron.
Cleveland and Toronto, 2 worst rosters.

in terms of 'star power', we are very limited.
bargs would be our only big name in terms of 'star potential'... but theres no way in hell Cleveland has more 'star potential/power' than us. Bargs is head and shoulders a bigger trading chip than anyone on that entire roster.
who's their's? Jamison? thats a joke.

But which team is in the worst situation? It definitely isn't the Raps. we're looking at a team full of young guys with manageable deals. I like where this team is at.

where's detroit in all of this? detroit is so fucked it isn't even funny. that franchise is locked into a handful of players that are either over the hill or are one-trick ponies that will amount to nothing.

There is at least 6 players on this team I'd take over any player on the Cavs.

Euroleague roster? Ridiculous as half of the team is above Euroleague level.

DeRozan/Davis > either of those two pairings.
It's ESPN radio, do you think they would do anything other then bash Canada?

We might not have the best team but we have a lot of young talent with potential at each position.

C- Bargs PF- Amir, Davis SG- DeMar PG - Bayless

very nice pieces heading into the future.

As of right now I still say we have a better roster than Charlotte, Cleveland and arguably Detroit.

Oh, Detroit, that team is so terrible. In fact, they have some talent and good players but that roster is so unbalanced.
Their main C is Wallace, and then who? That rookie and Wilcox?
PF spot is a disaster. Villanuava is a role player, he can score but he can't defend or rebound. If Wallace and Villanuava was a one player, it would be sexy, now it's just terrible. They used to append each other, but now they just negates each other.
Oh, i almost forgot... Maxiell... Aaahhh... and thats it.
The rest of the team are shooting guards lol...

the problem with the pistons is they do have more talent than us but the problem with the pistons is they have no young talented guys with potential.we have derozan, bargnani, etc. the pistons have vets rip, teyshaun and if ur rebuilding thats pretty useless if u ask me

We may have the least amount of talent, but we clearly don't have the worst team.
We have a few decent building blocks ..
